Above Ground Swimming Pool Fencing Requirements

Case Study: Extreme Winds Damage Above Ground Spa<br /><br /><br />Case Study: Extreme Winds Damage Above Ground Spa<br />Swimming Pool Inspection Services was called out to inspect the damage sustained by an above-ground spa in Missouri, after the extreme winter months. High winds destroyed the paneling around the spa, as well as the spa cover. In addition, a lightning strike destroyed the electrical equipment to the spa. Our inspector determined that the entire unit needed to be replaced.<br />Our inspector met with the homeowner who explained that the high winds during the winter months had picked up the neighbor’s trampoline, which landed in the fencing that surrounded the spa, damaging the fencing. The winds also tore the cover off the spa, and ripped the hot tub’s paneling off the frame.<br />Inspection Observations<br />An experienced swimming pool and spa inspector visited the home and made the following observations:<br />• The spa cover had tears and the ties had been ripped off<br />• Severe damage was sustained to the cabinet<br />• There was no visible damage to the hot tub shell<br />• The hot tub did not run and the motor and heater did not function<br />• The hot tub’s “pack” (complete mechanical and electrical system) was old and the service wires were burnt at relays<br />• The electrical system was protected by quick disconnect only<br /><br />The hot tub was exposed to 60 inches of snow during the winter. The electronics were non-functional and had long passed the life expectancy of the unit. The hot tub unit had no signs of leakage.<br />Repair Estimates<br />Although the hot tub was quite old, the inspector determined that it may have been operational before the storm, and that the damage was caused by the extreme weather conditions. The damage to the electrical system was likely caused by an electrical surge during the storm.<br />The inspector determined that the entire unit would need replacing as it would cost more to repair the unit than to replace it, and the damaged unit was beyond its normal expectancy.

Does a pool add value?

Data on what a pool adds to a home's value is scarce, but it mostly varies depending on location. So if and when you sell your house, a pool could help or hurt your cause depending on your locality.

"A pool adds aesthetic value as well as a gathering place for entertainment and relaxation," says Summer Greene, regional manager with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Florida 1st in Fort Lauderdale. "Pools in South Florida are more of a commodity with the expectation a home will have a pool. In fact, homes without pools take longer to sell and hurt overall market value."

"You must look at a number of variables," says Joseph Dionne, a real estate agent at RE/MAX Town and Country Realty in Winter Springs, Fla., "from the pool being screened or enclosed, being heated, having water features, as well as general condition of the pool. A general guide, would be $8,000 to $10,000 for a home valued at $125,000; $15,000 for a home valued at $250,000, and approximately $20,000 for a home valued at $500,000." Dionne recommends you check with a local appraiser for more exact figures.

Back in 2003, the National Association of Realtors said an in-ground swimming pool added about 8 percent to the value of your house while an above-ground pool added none.

Costs

"The biggest drawback is the necessary weekly maintenance, but, if you look hard enough, there are an abundance of pool companies that service pools for about $50 to $75 a month," says Greene.

Those monthly costs are about the same in Arizona, says Hill.

In addition, take into account hidden costs, like fencing, pool suction devices, self-closing doors, safety alarms and additional homeowners insurance. Combined, all add thousands of dollars to your home purchase.

Get an inspection from the right source

Just as a home inspector conducts thorough due diligence on your home, a pool expert should do their own due diligence before you sign on the dotted line.

"Don't use a general home inspector for a pool inspection, says Sabine Schoenberg, a luxury real estate development firm in New York City. "Instead, get a pool company to inspect the pool -- you want an expert."

Talk to the pool's servicer

Homebuyers shouldn't hesitate to ask the seller for the name of the company that serviced the pool while they lived in the home. The service company knows the pool best and can analyze the pool's quality and potential upkeep costs.

"Call them up," says Schoenberg. "Generally speaking, the pool service company will be happy to speak with you since it is their chance to continue the account." Reviewing the pool's service records can give you an idea of what to expect in terms of the pool's overall condition and what service and maintenance costs you'll encounter each year, Schoenberg adds.

Final tips

Hill says buying a home with a pool should not negatively impact your mortgage qualification. If you're concerned, you can determine your monthly payment by using a mortgage payment calculator. If anything, he says, it might help you sell faster.

"Homes with a pool usually appeal to more homebuyers than homes without a pool," he says. "This can mean a faster sale later and may add some value to the final sale."

It's also a good idea to check your local municipality's rules on home pool use (known as a Certificate of Occupancy). "Municipalities are constantly changing pool regulations and if such a C/O is missing you likely have to meet today's much more stringent regulations," says Schoenberg.

Having a pool can be great fun and add value to your home. Just don't dive in head first before knowing what it all costs.">How to Buy a Home With a Pool<br />by Brian O'Connel<br /><br /><br />While the decision of whether or not to buy a home with a pool is a personal choice for homebuyers, there are several factors to consider which will have a serious financial impact over the short and long term.<br /><br />Beyond deciding whether or not you want to own a pool, there are additional issues to consider, such as the insurance, maintenance and safety costs associated with pool ownership.<br /><br />

Above ground pool fencing<br />http://www.poolfencingsupplier.com/pool-fencing/above-ground-pool-fencing.html<br /><br />The walls of above ground pool often serve as a barrier to access. However, if the height of the pool walls is less than four feet, then additional pool fencing must be installed. Since most above ground pools have stairs for easier entry, these stairs need to be removable or able to be raised, or they too must have a fence around them.<br /><br />Above ground pool fencing, as you would expect from the name, this type of fencing is specific to above-ground pools. While some people make the mistake of believing that children can't climb into an above ground pool from the ground, the creativity and curiosity of children means that installation of a fence on your above-ground pool is just as important as it is for an in-ground pool.

Another step in pool safety is Self Locking/Latching Gates. These add another layer of protection for family, friends and pets. They are made to reduce pool access and meet pool barrier requirements.<br />Self Latching gates must be at least fifty-four inches above the ground. The gate must also open outward from the pool.<br />These requirements apply to “a swimming pool, or other contained body of water that contains water eighteen inches or more in depth at any point and that is wider than eight feet at any point and is intended for swimming” (from http://www.azleg.state.az.us/ars/36/01681.htm), whether it is below or above ground, according to the very first section of the law.<br />Remember - pool safety is every one's responsibility!<br /><br />For a free estimate call DCS Industries at 623.825.7700

Case Study: Extreme Winds Dama...

Case Study: Extreme Winds Damage Above Ground Spa<br /><br /><br />Case Study: Extreme Winds Damage Above Ground Spa<br />Swimming Pool Inspection Services was called out to inspect the damage sustained by an above-ground spa in Missouri, after the extreme winter months. High winds destroyed the paneling around the spa, as well as the spa cover. In addition, a lightning strike destroyed the electrical equipment to the spa. Our inspector determined that the entire unit needed to be replaced.<br />Our inspector met with the homeowner who explained that the high winds during the winter months had picked up the neighbor’s trampoline, which landed in the fencing that surrounded the spa, damaging the fencing. The winds also tore the cover off the spa, and ripped the hot tub’s paneling off the frame.<br />Inspection Observations<br />An experienced swimming pool and spa inspector visited the home and made the following observations:<br />• The spa cover had tears and the ties had been ripped off<br />• Severe damage was sustained to the cabinet<br />• There was no visible damage to the hot tub shell<br />• The hot tub did not run and the motor and heater did not function<br />• The hot tub’s “pack” (complete mechanical and electrical system) was old and the service wires were burnt at relays<br />• The electrical system was protected by quick disconnect only<br /><br />The hot tub was exposed to 60 inches of snow during the winter. The electronics were non-functional and had long passed the life expectancy of the unit. The hot tub unit had no signs of leakage.<br />Repair Estimates<br />Although the hot tub was quite old, the inspector determined that it may have been operational before the storm, and that the damage was caused by the extreme weather conditions. The damage to the electrical system was likely caused by an electrical surge during the storm.<br />The inspector determined that the entire unit would need replacing as it would cost more to repair the unit than to replace it, and the damaged unit was beyond its normal expectancy.
