Does installing a new swimming pool change property taxes in California?
Most likely. However, the change in assessed value may not be as much as the cost of installing the swimming pool. Contact your local property assessor to find out how they treat the valuation of swimming pools for assessment purposes.

If you are filling the pool with water yourself and not having apool maintenance firm do it, then you'll likely need: . Â· Calcium (via Calcium Chloride or possibly Calcium Carbonate ifyou need to increase alkalinity as well). This assumes that yoursource water has less than 300 ppm CaCO3 equival…ent of calciumhardness. . Â· Bicarbonate of soda to get the Total Alkalinity to 80-120 ppm.After that, then it's mostly just adding chlorine and adjusting pH(with acid if you use liquid chlorine; base if you use Tri-Chlor). NOTE: If you use Tri-Chlor (or Di-Chlor), you will be increasingyour Cyanuric Acid (CYA) levels substantially over even one summerof use. If you do frequent backwash of your sand or DE pool filter(paper filters don't need backwash) and if you splash out lots ofwater, then the CYA level might be OK. Otherwise, 1 tablet ofTri-Chlor produces (in 16,000 gallons) about 2.5 ppm of chlorineAND 2 ppm of CYA. Di-chlor produces 1.5 times as much CYA for thesame amount of chlorine as Tri-Chlor. . Â· Sodium Bicarb. . Â· Muriatic acid . Â· A floater (don't put your tabs in the skimmer) . Â· Taylor DPD Test Kit-- You'll also need to know how to makeadjustments and the meaning of each reading. Test chemical levelsbefore letting anyone enter the pool. Do not allow anyone in thepool for at least half an hour after treatment. . Â· Never Mix Chemicals!!! . Â· Run your filter pump as recommended-possibly 2-4 hours a day.Filter use will increase when used with an intex cover or solarcover, as air cannot circulate. . If you have not had a pool before, you should take a course inmanaging the pool--often offered through your local government. Having a properly balanced pool is not difficult, but it does takework. I'm the pool operator at our local YMCA and keeping an 80,000gallon pool balanced is pretty easy, once you all the elements inplace and know what you're doing. Chlorine 1.5-3.5, alkalinity 80-100, pH 7.6-7.8, not 7.2, hardness150-250, not up to 400. You have to stay on top of it because the chlorine can go down in amatter of hours if no one properly checks it. (MORE)
Answer . These can vary greatly depending on your location, pool, pump, filter, heater sizes and ratings. Do you have a concept as to how much use it will get? The cost of gas, electricity, chemical costs -- do you want pool service -- do it yourself -- Knowing some of the above will give you a …start as to how long you need to run the equipment, how much chemicals to use and if you have automatic or semiautomatic devices. In other words there are too many variables to give you an accurate answer without knowing the details of your pool. Best ballpark answer is to give you a direction and that would be to ask your neighbors who have pools. k (MORE)
Answer . FOLLOW THE BUILDERS RECOMMENDATIONS!!! The pool plaster has to cure with the least amount of variations of the water. Heating the pool prematurely can cause the plaster to delaminate. Swimming too soon can lead to dimples and foot prints in the plaster that will always collect sand and …dust and will always look dirty. Not a good idea. k (MORE)
Answer NOTE: Be sure to read all the comments for a more thorough answer. Not all people are qualified to work on swimming pool lighting systems or swimming pool electrical hook-ups. . First I will assume that we are talking about an in ground swimming pool. Here are the steps you want to take to… change a bulb. Remember you do not have to drain the pool to do this unless the pool light has to be changed and the water is very cold, even in this case you would only drain to the bottom or the light. So are you ready here we go:. 1-Remove the screw at the top of the light. If you have a vinyl liner pool there will be an outer ring behind the face ring of the actual light. DO NOT REMOVE ANY OF THESE SCREWS. Once the screw is loose the light should want to float up and out of the niche in the side of the wall of the pool. If it does not then the light may be full of water, this is not a good thing, you will have to pick the light up off the hook on the bottom of the niche to remove it.. 2-There should be enough cord to take the light and set it on the deck of the pool. If there isn't enough cord then the light was install incorrectly and you will either have to drain the pool to replace the bulb or you will need to replace the whole light this time making sure you have enough cord to set the light on the deck when you remove it. If the light is full of water inspect the fixture carefully to make sure it does not have holes if it does you will need to replace the whole light. If you see no holes then remove the light lens (each light is different but it should be self evident how to remove the lens from the light body) and inspect the lens gasket for failure. We always recommend installing a new light lens gasket when you change the bulb. If you had water inside the light and you can find no evidence of how the water got into the light then we recommend replacing the light for safety reasons. Once the lens off you can unscrew the light bulb be very careful when you grab the bulb we recommend you use a rag or a leather glove in case the bulb breaks while trying to unscrew the bulb from the fixture. If you have a halogen bulb it will just unplug.. 3-Install the new bulb and new lens gasket and reassemble the light lens to the light body.. 4-Now the fun begins you have a buoyant submarine that you have to put back in a hole in the wall it will be a little bit of a battle but with some practice you will have it in the niche and tighten the screw so it is in securely.. 5-Clear anyone from the pool no hands or feet should be in contact with the water. Then turn the light on if the ground fault or circuit breaker trips then you have a short somewhere you will need either an electrician or you may need to replace the whole light fixture. In this situation we recommend an electrician who may tell you to replace the light but in this case better safe than sorry!. Answer . In the above: You failed to state to be sure to turn off the power and the circuit breaker. You also failed to tell them to inspect the fixture and cord for damage, age, corrosion. You also failed to state that any work on a pool light would require that person or a qualified electrician to update the system per codes and install a GFCI. You also negleted to state that an old fixture will not have the socket set in an epoxy shell. If this is the case the entire fixture should be replaced.. My light does not have a screw in the metal ring around the bulb, or a hole for one. It seems to be on a hinge at the top. I can't get the bottom to stay in. There is at least 1 pin on the side of the metal ring that keeps coming out and the ring with the light shifts inside the housing with all the screws around it. The housing seems ok. Right now it's in, but if you touch the light it comes partially apart, mainly popping out at the bottom. (MORE)
Answer . \nDepends on your idea of hard. I just did mine and thought it more time consuming than anything else.
Answer . \nIt doesn't 'lower' the property value. \n. \nHowever, depending on the location, it may lower its appeal to many buyers. In Michigan, most people don't want the work of a pool for the extremely short swimming season. And often families with little kids and babies steer clear of bu…ying property with such obvious hazards. And they will increase the insurance rates. (MORE)
This would probably not be a good idea, the problem would be that after having dug the hole and having successfully assembled the pool, you would have to fill it with water before you back filled around the outside of the pool. The problem lays in the fact that should you ever have to empty the pool… to repair it the sides would want to cave in. Also what is the pool framework made of will it weather the conditions of a constantly damp underground environment? (MORE)
Answer . Depends on how big of a pool you want; your area pool dealers would probably give you a free estimate. My friend has a small pool and it cost her $5000.00
Answer . From just a few hundred $$ to 4 million.

Answer . After you add all of the chemicals that are needed (get your water tested at a pool dealer) usually the next day at the longest.
actually there is a chemical called shock and swim made by HTH and you can get it at walmart. You can swim 2 hrs after you shock it. There are chemicals that if you shock in the evening you can swim by the next morning.
Answer . I have not seen many that work well. Check out several in your area before you buy if you ca find them. . Answer . I would certainly recommend installing floor returns in your swimming pool.

Well first of all there is no such thing as a fiberglass pool. You can have fiberglass walls instead of steel but your pool is still vinyl because you need a liner. These are the usual combinations of inground pools.. 1. Sand floor, steel walls, vinyl liner. 2. Sand floor, fiberglass walls, vinyl …liner. 3. Vermiculite floor, steel walls, vinyl liner. 4. Vermiculite floor, fiberglass walls, vinyl liner. 5. Concrete floor, steel walls, vinyl liner. 6. Concrete floor, fiberglass walls, vinyl liner. 7. Concrete floor, concrete walls, no liner. Concrete pools have to be painted with epoxy paint or if you want tile installed then usually you plaster over the concrete.. Now a days 3 and 4 are the most common inground installs. 1 and 2 are usually pools that are 30 + years old although you can still have them done that way.. In South Alabama the cost of a 20 *40 vinyl pool will cost around 18 to 22 thousand (MORE)
Right after you get a piercing, your priority should be to keep it as clean as possible. Swimming in a public pool or lake might not be the best idea.

Absolutely. Be prepared to pay out big bucks if someone gets hurt or drowns in your pool. You can not get city, county sign off without a fence unless the project is an illegal one.
The proper way is to call an electrician. Dozens of children are electrocuted every year due to faulty pool lights. This is a serious problem that should not be taken lightly.. More input . A qualified pool tech may be just a tad less expensive and he will know the codes and know what to look for …in a faulty or old light fixture. At the same time he will check out the GFCI if it has one. If your pool light dies not have a GFCI then one must be installed at the time the pool light is being worked on. The electrician or pool tech are requried to tell you of this code.. If you are installing a pool light for the first time it gets a little more complicated. (MORE)
Swimming pool pumps do not use sand. You may have sand in your filter. The sand has to by removed by hand after taking th etop of the filter off.
it depends on the price of the home you purchase. the less the appraised value is, the less you pay in taxes. the higher the more money spent on taxes. its safe to say about 1.25% of your home purchase price is due annually. for example a 169k home purchased would be 2112 bucks per year. payable in …2x payments or one lump sum. of course you can save in installmenst and set aside for the lump payment ;) (MORE)
A quick search turned up this blog: One of the most difficult aspects of planning for an inground pool is estimating the total cost. There are several variables that affect the overall cost of building and maintaining an inground pool, including the size of the pool and the material will comprise …it. In the Chicagoland area a small, basic inground pool will cost between $20,000 and $50,000. Some of the larger, deeper and more high-end inground pools can cost as much as $100,000.. (MORE)

The only negative I can see to installing an auto-fill is that you can't be sure whether your pool is truly holding water. Through age and mishaps, pools can develop leaks. Having an auto-fill, you would not know if you had a leak until it became substantial or you got an outrageous water bill.
You will have to define how old a swimming pool has to be, in order to be classified as an older swimming pool.
Water is changed when calcium hardness, cyanuric acid, or total dissolved solids become too high. In Las Vegas we recommend every two years due to high calcium hardness.
