Swimming Pool Installation


Is it safe to install an above ground swimming pool over my underground electric lines for my house?

For small to med size portable pool I don't think it is a issue but large one that kinda iffy you will have to check with the POCO { power company } to see what they say with it.

I know my POCO in Wisconsin say no they don't want large portable pool under the latheral runs.

In France they say no pools above the lateral runs

Perament mounted above pools that is automatique no with under the lateral service runs

Merci,Marc

It would be kind of hard to put a pool under the underground service laterals.

Yes it would be safe unless you're driving some type of rods into the ground.

Yes, but I would not do it.

There may also be a local amendment prohibiting it.
