Pool Wall as the Barrier (above-ground only)

If the pool wall is to be utilized as the barrier it shall be no less than 48" from finished grade to top of the pool wall for the entire perimeter of the pool. This measurement will be taken after the desired topsoil has been backfilled back around the pool. Please ensure this is complete before calling for a Final Inspection. Upon completion of setup, the installers will instruct you to start filling the pool with water. You may fill the pool up to 24" to complete the backfilling around the pool. If it appears that the backfilling will extend above 24" please call your inspector for instruction as you will likely be required to provide an alternative barrier for the pool. The ladder should not be installed, and the pool may NOT be filled more than 24" and my NOT be used without first requesting and receiving a Final Inspection by this office.
