Rick Pinto Swimming Pool Service, Inc. provides Swimming Pool Inspections for perspective buyers of homes with swimming pools and spas in lower Fairfield County of CT and bordering Westchester County communities. Just like a home inspection, it is very important to have a pool inspected. After all, it is a large investment and should be thoroughly inspected to be sure that it was properly constructed and maintained, even for new pools. These days many pools have elaborate control systems, water features, and electronic valves and even some with smart phone interfacing. There are many instances where a new homeowner purchased a home without having the swimming pool inspected or had it inspected as part of the home inspection only to find out, after the sale that the pool needed attention and was overlooked.
When you are purchasing a new home, we understand the need for last minute inspections with a quick turn around can make or break the deal. Our report will be emailed to you ASAP following the inspection. This report may contain pictures detailing areas of concern and recommendations as well as possible solutions and/or costs involved.
Rick Pinto has received accreditations as an APSP (Association of Pool and Spa Professionals) Certified & Licensed Service Professional. With over 40 years in the swimming pool industry, who better to look over your pool for potential issues than the owner, Rick himself. Rick has all the expertise, experience and licenses needed to look for even the smallest of problems. He will provide you with a detailed report including but not limited to equipment operation (for each piece of equipment) and condition, electrical systems, plumbing, pool structure, accessories, patio and decking, fencing, safety issues and code requirements. If requested, an electronic leak detection service can also be performed, at an additional price, which will determine if the pool has even the smallest leak. Even though, it cannot determine the location of a leak if present, it can help to avoid costly structural and underground plumbing repairs, which would be otherwise undetectable. We can also provide leak location services to pinpoint a leak, such as pressure testing of the underground plumbing and scuba diving service to inspect the pool interior, as well as the actual repairs necessary.
Since not every pool is alike (some have additional pumps, multiple filters and heaters, spas, other water features, etc.), the price to perform the inspection varies. Below are the costs associated with a Pool Inspection. Although inspections can be performed during the off-season, it is highly advisable to have the pool operational and clean when the inspection is performed. There are just too many variables that may be overlooked, for instance, leaking pumps, filters, heaters, plumbing, and structural problems, which may not be visible unless the pool is operational.

- Pool w/spa sharing same filtration system (pump, filter and heater) $525.00

“Rick Pinto Swimming Pools provides great customer service and dependability in pool maintenance services, as well as high-quality workmanship on renovation and build projects. When I bought my home, it was in “as-is” condition with a non-functioning, old leaking pool. With Rick Pinto’s help, the pool is now in beautiful, working condition with new tiles and decking. He personally helped with choosing the right materials for the style that I wanted and assisted with any questions I had during the building process. The Rick Pinto team was very professional and provided fast completion time. The result has been fantastic and I love the new pool. The stonework is top-notch and I have received numerous compliments on the masonry work of the flag-stone patio. Call Rick Pinto Swimming Pools, you won’t regret it.”
I was having a party for my daughter and my grandchild and needed the pool open and swimmable. I left multiple messages over 2 and a half weeks for the pool company who serviced our pool in Pound Ridge, N.Y. in the past and they never called back. I called Rick Pinto Swimming Pools mistakenly as I thought they were the company I had been calling and left them a message late one night which was now three days before my party. Rick Pinto Swimming Pools returned my call and first informed me that that they were in fact not the company that I had been calling. They did inform me that if I was not able to get in touch with the other company that I could call back and they would see if they could help me with my pool. I decided then and there that I was going to use Rick Pinto Swimming Pools and it worked out better then I could have imagined. Rick Pinto Swimming Pools coordinated the entire effort from the water trucks needed to fill my pool to having my pool chemically treated and ready for the party. It was a pleasure working with Rick and his team and I would recommend Rick Pinto Swimming Pools to anyone looking for a professional swimming pool service and maintenance company.
