Swimming Pool Building Regulations

You may need a permit to install a pool at a 1- or 2-family residential building.

All pools must meet the following requirements:

  • There must be a 4-foot high fence all the way around in-ground pools with a closed, child proof, self-closing gate.
  • If the lot is 25 feet wide or more, the pool must be at least 5 feet from any lot line.
  • If the lot is less than 25 feet wide, it must be at least 3 feet from any side yard line.
  • There should be no overhead electrical conductors installed within 15 feet of the pool.
