Hi there. We are new to this whole process, so apologies in advance for my general ignorance. We just bought a new house (new to us, not new construction) on the Jersey shore, and we picked the property in part because it has a backyard that we thought would be good for an in-ground pool. We are familiar with the zoning rules, and talked to the town, so we should be in okay shape permit-wise, but this is part of the regs:
The bottom of in-ground pools shall be a minimum of two feet above the seasonal high ground water table.
Assuming this is a specific measurement for our property, how do we measure it? Is this something that a pool builder does, do we need to get an engineer to do it? Our concern is heightened because the house does have a pretty active sump pump from the basement (which is itself dry). Any thoughts would be appreciated.
