Property easements - it is important to know that some properties have easements on them, and in these situations, neither the pools or any equipment may be located on the easement. It is also important to know that all pool filters or heaters must be located in accordance with the City's Zoning By-law, which in many cases, means placing all pool related equipment in the rear yard.
Plumbing and drains - if the water supply for the pool is to be directly connected to the City water supply, or the existing drains are to be connected to the pool, then a separate Plumbing Permit is required from the Planning & Building Department at 3-1-1 (Monday to Friday from 7:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.). If calling outside City limits, please dial 905-615-4311. For an emergency after hours from 7:00 p.m - 7:00 a.m. and weekends and holidays, please dial 905-615-3000. .
Electrical installations - If any electrical work is involved in the installation of the pool equipment or any lighting equipment, then a permit is required from the Ontario Hydro Inspection office.
Insurance - When planning to install a pool, it it important to investigate insurance responsibilities. Most insurance companies recommend increasing liability insurance when a pool is installed. Consult your insurance agent on this matte
