Pc Pools Advises Pool Buyers to be Aware of Local Regulations May 14, 2009 07:00 PM

St. Paul, MN - Pc Pools, one of America’s leading direct marketers of above ground pools and pool supplies for residential and commercial pool owners advises pool buyers to appreciate that above ground pools are often times as regulated by local communities as in ground pools when it comes to safety. Historically, for state and municipal officials who draft safety rules, above ground pools have straddled the line between permanent and temporary pool structures. As the quality and popularity of above ground pools increased so has the consistency of the regulations.
Marketing Director Ted Robinson had this to say, "Because swimming pools are generally locally regulated, there is often times confusion and inconsistency about how swimming pools should be treated. Often time home owners don’t know that there are regulations for pools until they apply for the building permit. While this can be frustrating for pool buyers, however, this is really nothing to get overly concerned with for new pool buyers. Many of these safety codes are available at the local department of public safety. In addition, home owners need to remember that many of the regulations were put in place for the safety of the home/pool owner and the community. I believe that historically there was some prejudice against above ground pools. Some communities didn’t view them as a "home improvement product." However, above ground pools of today are attractively designed and the installations are becoming much more attractive and elaborate. The key is to educating the consumers and the local communities that these above ground pools add value to the community and have changed dramatically from 10 years ago. Everyone benefits from the homeowners being educated in the local regulations concerning pool installation.
