Pool & Built-in Spa Equipment Warranty Coverage

Pools and built-in spa equipment are a luxurious addition to your outdoor space. Having the right coverage can make it a lot easier to keep them up and running. When you add Pool & Built-in Spa Equipment coverage to your home warranty plan, you can simply place a service request for a covered breakdown online or call American Home Shield®.

American Home Shield will pay up to $3,000 per agreement term for access, diagnosis, and repair/replacement of covered fresh water pool equipment. Both pool and built-in spa equipment are covered if they share equipment. If the pool and built-in spa do not share equipment and have separate pump and filtration systems, only one or the other is covered unless an additional fee is paid to cover both.
