    Hello from West Virginia! :)

    Hi there!

    I`m just popping in to say exactly that^ and ask a question that has likely been asked several thousand times before.. which is.. dose putting an abg pool 3ft into the ground suddenly become an in-ground pool?

    I am certain it will change the barrier aspect of the law ( going from 4ft barrier to a 6 ft), but I cannot find anything top tell if anything else changes. I have read here and across the web, that because it is still considered an "ABG pool" because of its construction, it will not cause home insurance to rise. But I am still wondering what if anything changes due to lowering 3ft into the ground.

    Anyway, have a great rest of you day and thanks ahead of time for any info you can give .

    Hi Roxanne,
    Welcome to TFP!

    A partially buried AGP does not reclassify it. It's still an AGP.
