We are wanting to build a in ground gunite pool but are not sure how to address the local/state septic regulations. We have an aerobic septic system that returns the treated waste water back into our yard through a sprinkler system.
Regulations state that the septic field cannot be within 25 feet of the pool and the sprinklers have a 25 ft radius. That means that any sprinkler head would need to be 50 ft from the pool. My back yard is roughly 80 ft wide by 50 ft deep when you account for 10 ft easements. The code also requires 6,666 sq ft of septic field so our front yard is not big enough to cover the required septic field.
If we moved the sprinklers to be right on the easement line on one side of our yard the pool could still only be 30 ft at most from the easement on the other side of our yard.
A simple google map view of our neighborhood shows dozens of pools so either everyone in my neighborhood is running outside of code or I am missing something.
Has anyone else in Texas had issue with working their pool around their septic system? Any advice would be much appreciated.
