Check List for Pool Installation Success
With spring right around the corner, many people throughout Northeast Pennsylvania are beginning to plan their summer schedule. Many of these plans include everyone’s favorite summer activity — swimming! So why not invest in a swimming pool?
There are plenty of pros and cons to both above-ground and in-ground pools, but before you start the process of deciding, you must first ensure that the placement and installation of your pool is perfect. Find out what steps to take with some help from the pool professionals of Aqua Leisure Pools and Spas today!
Step 1: Check for Utility Lines
Before you can begin construction, you need to ensure that there are no water lines running underground or electrical lines hanging above where you intend to position the pool. Digging where there are pipes is an expensive mistake and placing your pool under electrical lines is just asking for someone to be electrocuted.
Step 2: Check the Landscape and Lot Lines
Though some people are lucky enough to have a completely level yard, most are not. Installing a pool, especially an inground pool, requires an even surface, meaning that you may be faced with the extra expense of having the ground leveled prior to construction.
If your property is on a slope, don’t worry — Aqua Leisure Pools and Spas offers semi-inground pools, perfect for homes in the hills.
When it comes to lot lines, having your land surveyed allows you to determine where your property lines lay, ensuring that your pool is not built on your neighbor’s property. A Florida property dispute actually ended in one neighbor placing a fence directly through his neighbor’s pool and garage, all because they were on his property.
Step 3: Check Local Guidelines/Ordinances
Perhaps you live in a historical district or a new housing development. These communities often have restrictions about what can be installed on your property. Failing to adhere to these rules can end in you wasting your time and money and having to remove your brand new pool.
Another thing to consider is your town or city’s laws on pool enclosures and fencing. Protect your family and your budget by planning accordingly.
