Hey Everyone. I am new here from central Pennsylvania and had a questions about electric service. I am putting a pool in my side yard that is shaped like a rectangle 40 feet wide by about 200 feet in length. I am looking at the Radiant pools because of the slope; I can burry half of it (16x24). I called the 'call before you dig' people and the electric company marked their lines. What do you know my underground service goes exactly right through where I marked off the pool. I can't shift the pool due to the 10 feet offsets from the house and property line. I also do not want to put it in my back yard and kill all the space where the kids play. So anyways, sorry for the long back story.
Now, can the electric company splice an underground cable to take out the "diagonal-ness" so I can place my pool there? Or are we talking about them trenching a whole new line with a new cable run. I am worried that would be expensive since the power pad is across the street. I put a call into the electric company (Penelec), and they said it would be 10 days until an Engineer is out to survey the line. Summer is ticking!
The family is all excited about this, and I am feeling kind of down about it now . Not only the electric, but all the paperwork and inspections that the township has to do since I live in a subdivision is enough to make me go crazy.
Thanks all in advance!!
