Quick question/comment regarding TREC pool inspection standards. I noticed on the NACHI CE list that the Pool inspection exam is approved by TREC, however I happened to notice it is not listed on the approved CE courses list on the TREC website under the InterNACHI section. I heard through the grapevine that a CPO or CPI is required to inspect pools in Texas. So what is the true minimum requirement in Texas? Also, what is the best cert to have to mitigate lawsuits concerning pool inspections here in the great state? I am asking because I am just getting my feet wet in Texas inspections. Any help/comments are appreciated.

Thanks much.

Ben,
I just presented a live course on pool inspections at the Florida conference last month. I'd love to work with you on a NachiTV episode or course.

BTW: no offense but the nachi course is ready for a little updating, especially on energy issues.

Others,

HIP has a decent template on their website, just check out the list of all templates it's near the top. You'll probably need to change some of the terminology to fit your area though.

The question following remains:
So what is the true minimum requirement in Texas? Of course following the minimum requirement is a good way to set oneself up for failure and a lawsuit in this line of work.
For those who are currently performing pool inspections here in TX, is doing the CPO/CPI course the best method or is following a experience approach satisfactory?
Again all comments appreciated.

I know enough to know I don't know enough.

Different school of thought as follows? Sticking to the TREC SOP for swimming pools (and anything else) as far as reporting is concerned will increase odds of NOT getting sued successfully. Of course, you have the duty to report any conditions that might be hazardous or unsafe as always. These conditions are observed incidentally as you inspect. And of course, CE is always good to build and reinforce your base knowledge and sensitivity to observed issues. Use your education to build a "wall" of competancy, I would say. Just my thoughts and some may disagree. But that's OK.
