Saltwater Pool & Built-in Spa Equipment

Saltwater Pool & Built-in Spa Equipment warranty coverage

Saltwater 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. That's where we come in. When you add Pool & Built-in Spa Equipment coverage to your home warranty plan you can simply place a service request online or call American Home Shield.

American Home Shield will pay up to $3,000 per contract term for covered Saltwater Pool & Built-in Spa Equipment. Both pool and spa equipment are covered if they share equipment. If the pool and built-in spa do not share common equipment and have separate pump and filtration systems, then only one or the other is covered unless an additional fee is paid to cover both.
