Ge otechn c a sur ey Consider getting a geotechnical survey. It will show possible rock or unstable foundation soil that can increase costs dramatically. Some builders have geotechnical consultants, or alternatively the Association of Consulting Engineers can recommend one. Ask what the survey will cost before going ahead. Und erground c abe s Before digging, find out if there are any under- ground cables on your pool site (Dial Before You Dig, phone 1100). Get a copy of your site plan from your local council or water authority. Ste c ons d erat ons The site plan will show the position of sewers, storm water, drainage systems and other utili- ty pipes. Your pool cannot interfere with drainage systems or pipes -- moving them will increase costs. Also be aware that the removal and disposal of rocks, and other materials can be very expensive. P o o d e sgn Select an appropriate pool for your site. Consider maintenance and the right equip- ment to be used. Allow for future needs such as a shed, barbecue or clothes line. Appro a s Refer to your local council or private accredit- ed certifier to determine who can approve your plans. Also check legal requirements for a child- resistant barrier and tree preservation policies. If power lines pass over or are close to your pool, you will need to contact Transgrid or your local electricity authority responsible for electricity line placements. The electricity authority must be satisfied your pool is a suffi- cient distance from power lines and won't interfere with maintenance work. www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au things to consider when choosing a pool
