Irrigation – If during excavation and trenching for a swimming pool or spa yard irrigation or drainage is damaged, the cost of repair and reroute is generally the responsibility of the owner. Be careful and ask questions.
Inspection – Periodically through the construction of your swimming pool, your contractor will call for an inspection of the work by the city. The inspector will visit the project within 24 to 48 hours from request. He or she will enter the site using the same access as the workers so the home owner may not know that an inspection has been completed. If the gate is lock or there are dogs the inspector may leave and need to be recalled and there may be a fee for the re-inspection. Generally the contractor pays re-inspection fees. However it is the owner’s responsibility to leave appropriate access.
