Before Installing an Inground Pool

Like many, you’re probably dreaming about having your own swimming pool in your backyard. After all, it is an amazing thing to be able to go swimming whenever you want. No more public pools. People often call us up asking when we can bring one of our fiberglass pools and put it in the ground. The thing is, it’s not that simple. While we wish that we could simply come to your house, put a pool in the ground, and leave you a happy new pool owner, there are a lot of steps that you have to take before this dream can become a reality.

At Big Splash Pools, we specialize in, installing Gunite And fiberglass swimming pools across the Tampa Bay area, but in this article, we’ll cover the first steps that every homeowner needs to take before getting any type of inground swimming pool.

Your Complete Pool Planning Checklist:

Find or acquire a property site survey. You should have one within the Closing documents you signed when you purchased your home. This is a very necessary document to determine where and how big a pool can be placed in your yard. Infact no building dept will allow you to apply for a building permit with this very important item.

Where to get this information: Contact your local records or planning office to get a copy of your home’s plans, or ask your real estate agent. You can also visit the Underground Safety Alliance 811 website and submit a request to have a copy. Otherwise, you will need to hire a surveyor to develop one for you. We can help by referring someone in your area that will do the job quickly and painlessly.

We know that this is a lot to take in, but if you go one step at a time, you’ll be cleared and ready to put your pool in the ground before you know it!
