Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc. was referred to us by our realtor for our home inspection. Our inspector was Cary Cooper. He really took the time to answer all of our questions about his findings. We didn't feel rushed or that any question was too silly. He gave us peace of mind with a few of our concerns and was honest, even if we weren't to thrilled with the news. Overall, it was a great experience and we would definitely use (and refer)  Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc. in the future for any inspection needs.

I would like to recommend Brandon for his excellent job during the inspection. He is very professional, thorough and is an expert in his field. I enjoyed his partnership during inspection, the knowledge he shared of the risks of certain issues was incredible. I am very glad that he inspected the house for us and wishing him more success in future.

Have used Atlanta Property Inspections several times for my buyers.  Their team is always very thorough and educational for the new home owners.  Much information is shared about past/current codes, potential issues and how to have the issues repaired.  I will continue to use Atlanta Property Inspectors for future inspections, and my clients have been very happy with their services as well!

Frank Cooper and his team from Atlanta Property Inspections, Inc were excellent! They arrived on time  and thoroughly inspected all areas of the property I was considering renting. They found things that needed to be repaired by the landlord before we signed the lease. Frank reviewed his findings with us. He explained all of his concerns, and he patiently answered all of our questions. Then the next day I received a very detailed report that included several pictures and detailed explanations. If you want a kind, knowledgeable, and thorough inspector, don’t hesitate to call Frank Cooper with Atlanta Property. I would highly recommend him! Truly a 5 star company!

Atlanta Property Inspections came to do a pre-purchasing inspection on a home my husband and  I plan to buy! We had a very short due diligence period, but that was no issue for these guys. They fit us in their schedule on very short notice and were such a pleasure to work with. Cary and Riley came to do the inspection and did a fantastic job walking us through the inspection to let us know what they found, and suggestions on how to fix all of the issues! Shout out to Cary, for answering all of our questions and having such a great personality! We truly appreciate you guys taking the time to help us through such a very stressful time. We HIGHLY recommend this company!

Tips to Detect Swimming Pool Leak

Pool leaks are the nightmares of every homeowner. Besides the obvious waste of water, they can cause great pool damage and even cause structural problems if ignored. Additionally, the leak will show up on your water bills very annoyingly. As a homeowner, if you are suspicious of a pool leak, we will go over how you can identify them in this article.

Make Sure It’s Not Only Evaporation

The first thing to check for is evaporation. It’s only natural for a certain amount of water to evaporate over time. However, if more than half of the water is somehow "evaporating," this isn’t due to physics laws and certainly is related to a leak.

Water Bills

If you don’t notice any change in the water levels, this can be due to the automatic fill systems of the pool. They will quickly fill the pool when the water is lost, so you may not notice any abnormal evaporation sign. However, the leak evidence will certainly show up on your water bills. So, if you have increasing water bill costs, this is a big finding.


Leak water will get under the tiles and will cause them to become unsettled and can even lead to cracks or falls. So, if you notice abnormally loose tiles or cracks on the tiles, this indicates a possible leak.

Abnormal Grass Growth

Abnormal grass growth around the pool area or even algae growth also indicates a leak.

Bucket Test

The most certain way to know if your pool leaks is by performing the bucket test. For this, you can get a bucket and fill it with water. Put the bucket on the step of your pool and ensure the water level inside and outside the bucket is the same. After this, mark the level inside and outside the bucket and wait one day. Later, compare the level of lost water. If the levels are the same, most likely only evaporation is happening. If the pool loses more water, then a leak is happening.

Dye Test

After ensuring that there is a leak, you may want to locate the leak. You can use food coloring. Go to the plumbing fixtures and put some food coloring somewhere near them. The coloring will go to the area of the leak. Getting goggles to see the route of the dye in a clear manner is a good option.
