Thread: ANSI/NSPI Pool Type Question

  1. Back To Top    #1

    ANSI/NSPI Pool Type Question

    Maybe someone here can answer this question, but how is a pool "typed" per ANSI/NSPI standards? The reason I ask is that my state regulations require all inground pools to meet ANSI/NSPI standards. In looking at the standards, there are 6 different types of pools listed, TYPE 0 - TYPE V. Each type has it's own set of depth/angle requirements, but I can't find anything regarding what makes a pool a TYPE "X" pool.

    Is it the depth that determines the pool type, or is it the type of pool that determines the depth? I'd like to have a deep end in my pool, but if I have to build it as a diving pool (TYPES I-V), then I'd basically have no shallow end whatsoever due to the slope angle requirements. Ideally, I'd like to build a non-diving pool (TYPE 0) with a deep end, but I can't figure out if that is allowed.

    I thought I would bring this topic back up and see if anyone knows the answer.

    How do you know what the definition of pool type 0-V?

    Just curious if anybody found an answer on what determines each different type of pool.

    Thanks

    I think it is the dimensions of the pool that determine the Type and based on the Type there are limits on the size of the diving rock/board.

    Check out page 3 on the link I provided earlier. The depth/width measurements determine the type as shown on the table on page 3.
