Don't make this a DIY project. Call at least three certified electrical contractors. Ask each if a permit has to be taken out. If they say "no permit is needed" then move on to the next contractor. If no permit is taken out then there is no need for an electrical inspection.

You want the project to be inspected. With this inspection certificate, it will give you peace of mind that if anything goes wrong in the future in regards to the pool, you will have documentation that the job was done correctly and that it passed an electrical inspection.


Don't be afraid to call the electrical inspection department to ask about pool regulation in your area and qualified contractors in your area.

Grounding a pool is serious business, there are many risks if this is not done right. Grounding also varies depending city, county, state, country. For starters, you can't have a good enough ground for your pool. This is one case where more is better. As a general rule, you could drive a 10 ft copper ground rod at each corner of the pool. Then you could drive more 10 ft copper rods at each end and the middle. On each metal pool stanchion you have to put a suitable sized grounding lug that's threaded into the metal. You then start a #6 bare copper wire from the first rod and clamp and run it continuously through each stanchion.

You then tie the end back into the first rod creating a ground loop/grid. Again, this varies from place to place. Here is my suggestion. Call your local electrical inspection department, and see what they want done. Before it's closed in, weather decked or concrete it has to be inspected for your safety. When in doubt, always consult a licensed electrician from your area for local rules.

The pool has popped out of the ground because it was was forced up by ground water. If a pool is left empty ground water can build up underneath it causing the pool to start to float, Whenever a pool is drained a way of getting rid of ground water has to be set up otherwise there is the risk of this happening.

The cost of swimming pool repair can vary depending upon whether or not the pool is above-ground or in-ground. Above-ground pool repairs will generally be less than $25. In-ground pool repairs ranging from $500 to $1,000 are not uncommon.

If this is for an above ground swimming pool, I would level the ground before putting up the pool. Otherwise, the weight of the water might collapse one of the walls of the pool.
