How do I know what local laws and regulations are?


Contact your city or municipality for applicable laws and regulations governing above ground pools – these may include the following:

  • A building permit (not required in all areas, but you should always check)
  • Safety standards (in certain regions)
  • Utilities (electricity, laws governing when pools can be filled and drained, etc.)
  • Laws regarding fencing and boundaries around a yard with a pool
  • Boundaries of your property

Be sure to select a spot that is far from overhead or underground electrical lines and water and natural gas pipes and make sure you’re not putting your pool near any natural water sources.
