I am new to doing FHA appraisals, I have done a few. I did an inspection on a house today with a broken pool pump. The water is of course very nasty. My gut feeling is this is a safety issue and a cost to cure to fix the problem. The pool is a open pool, no screen enclosure. I really don't see anything in the handbooks except about safety issues. Thanks for the info.

Doesn't sound very severe to me. About $150 for a pump and chemicals.

FHA still bases it's requirements on "Safe, Sound and Sanitary". They have abandoned most of the former requirements for cosmetic things. In Florida, if that pump does not run for one week, that pool will turn green: Unsafe. The pump does not work, and is integral in the proper operation of the pool: Unsound. I would definitly call for repair of the pump and confirmation of proper operation of the system.
