Swimming pool permits regulations can vary from state to state, county to county, and even city to city. Fortunately, there are some general guidelines when considering a swimming pool project. Here are some questions you will have to ask yourself or your pool professional:
Have we taken note of public or private utilities/well locations/septic location?
Have we taken note of property lines/easements/building restriction lines?
Have we taken note of utilities/overhead electric lines/gas mains/sewer mains? Where are the lines for my cable, telephone, electric, gas, satellite, etc.?
You need to know of any setbacks to all of the above. Each jurisdiction is different, and you must be aware of what departments must sign off prior to issuing the permit. Also, most jurisdictions require a fence around the pool.
