Ok, just thinking out-loud, so to speak. My back yard is tight. We got a septic system on one side, the house on the other, and a line of pines on the East side. If I follow the rules for distance from my property line and septic system (10ft from property line and 10ft from septic), I can BARELY fit a 24ft pool. It will be a snug fit. If I go with a 21ft pool, it will be no problem. Obviously I would have 1 1/2ft extra from the septic and property line. That would give a foot more away from the pine trees. (obviously 1 ft or so will make no difference in sun access, so I am not factoring that in.
My wife says just get the 21ft and be done with it. My brain says, For only $200, it may be worth it to squeeze the 24ft in there. What are your thoughts? I usually have buyers remorse, so that is another reason for the 24ft, lol.
Man, I am also upset I waited to get the permit. I did not realize the health inspector needs to actually see where I am putting it, pertaining to the septic. Now I can't start the excavation which I need for 3ft on one side, and I can't even order the pool, since I want to make 100% I can do it, lol. Sigh, it feels like it will be end of June before I get it setup.
