What do I need to do about underground gas and phone lines prior to pool installation?
Two weeks prior to commencing excavation, Pool Builders will call for all line locates. For more information on the pool installation procedures, visit After Your Pool Purchase page.
Do I need to obtain a building permit?
Yes, you will require a building permit to construct the swimming pool, and Pool Builders will apply for this permit on your behalf. We will require your site plan indicating the location of your house and property lines and a cheque payable to the appropriate municipality for the permit. The process of obtaining a building permit takes on average two weeks.
Do I need to hire an electrician for the pool installation?
Yes, you will need an electrician to ground the pool and connect all electrical components such as the pool pump, salt generator, lights and electronic gas heaters. If you are in need of an electrician, Pool Builders will be happy to make a recommendation for you.
