Do I need a permit for my pool/hot tub?

Yes. NewYork State mandates that all swimming pools/hot tubs require permits, even storable/non-permanent pools. The sole exception beingwhere such pools are designed for a water depth of less than 24 inches and are installed entirely above ground.” Pool permits are usually issued in less than 2 weeks, and are often turned around in a few days. Fences and alarms will be required according to Code to ensure safety for our residents and their guests.
