    I know it depends, but generally speaking, if you aren't making changes to the pool itself... other than refinishing... is a permit required?

    Here in Central Florida, our county (Seminole) requires a permit for refinishing/replastering a pool. It's a new requirement, just since January this year, so they can inspect to ensure that older pools are updated with anti-entrapment type covers on the main drain.

City water, no restrictions. TFPC, chlorine bleach, TF100, SpeedStir.

    You are going to find this varies a great deal all over the country. The more urban the state the greater the permit requirements. Even then some only require permits for property tax tracking.
