Since pool water plumbing typically does not connect directly your home water system, the installation typically does not have to meet all state and local building codes. However, it is commonly considered a "best practice" to meet the building codes in the most reasonable manner.
That being said, PVC pool plumbing is typically installed in a fashion similar to that of an underground sprinkler system for a lawn with the pipes buried 6"-12" below grade.
PLEASE CONSULT A LOCAL POOLBUILDER FOR DEPTH RECOMMENDATION IF YOU LIVE IN A REGION WHERE FREEZING TEMPS OCCUR!
In regards to "which" pipes to bury, I would suggest that the more pipes that are buried, the less chance of accidental damage and the more professional looking the installation.
Hope this helps ...
building codes differ so check yours....and yes the codes apply to pools.....water pipe...8" to 12" inches below bond beam......high volt elect in conduit...18" ....gas line to heater....24"
It can crack the pool and any pipes that has water in them that freeze. a way of protecting the pool is to float drums in a line along the middle of the pool there by leaving an unfrozen track along the middle into which the ice can expand. You should definitely empty the filter and exposed water pipes.
Water freezes at 32 degrees Fahrenheit (which is 0 degrees Celsius). The factors which might change the temperature at which your pool pipes may freeze are: - other materials (such as salt) which are dissolved in the water - the rate of flow (if any) of the water through the pipes - the pipe diameter - the insulating properties of the pipes themselves - whether the pipes are buried underground Good luck with your pool!
A good way to see if you have a leak in your pool is to # take a bucket and fill it with water from your pool. # mark it at the water level. # mark the pool at the water level. # wait a few days if there is no leak in the pool then the water level in the bucket should have reduced by the same amount as the water level in the pool, however if the water level in the pool has gone down more then the water level in the bucket you have a leak in the pool or in the pipes around the pool.
Generally a vinyl lined pool is installed in MN due to the frost line. Heaving could theoretically push an entire fiberglass pool out of the ground. Also fiberglass pools are more limited in size thatn a lined pool, which are basically limited only by your imagination as liners can be custon fit for any pool if measurements are done correctly.
