We recently had a pool installed here in NJ. The pool is not a straight pool but a free form pool The diving board was installed and the Township failed us because the tip of the diving board was not centered exactly 5' on each side (left to right) at edge to the concrete walls. It is off slightly. I looked the engineering plans and the other tests with regard to installation have been met. There is more then 6' of clearance straight down to the deep end and to both sides of the walls and straight out. I have spent extensive time trying to find something in the regulations that indicate that the board must be centered precisely, but with no luck. The pool has a straight panel and a radius panel to the left and to the right so it is very hard to find the center. The mason is having trouble figuring out what to do and what went wrong. This is the first time he had this issue. The township is requiring to remove the board, cut the concrete, move the jig and pour new concrete to center the board. It is a Type I board and Pool with a minimum width of 10'. I have 10' and 2" clearance (tight spots). k
I know that people install boards all the time with kits and the 2 major companies sell them without any issues, etc. from the Townships.
Has any one heard about this before. There must be some room for error. As I mentioned previously all other conditions have been met from what I can gather.
