Be mindful of local regulations when enhancing your Citrus Heights real estate with a pool
Due to the generally sunny and pleasant climate of central California, a pool can be just the right enhancement to add to your Citrus Heights real estate. If you choose to take on such a project, be sure to read up on the local regulations on swimming pool construction that are maintained by the city of Citrus Heights.
Many of these have to do with placement. Swimming pools or spas must be set 3 feet back from the side and rear property lines, outside of all easements, and set back 20 feet beyond the front yard (or 12.5 feet from the street side yard on corner lot properties). You'll also need to review the title report associated with your property to determine if you have any utility easements, where a pool can't be placed.
Additionally, a building permit from the city's Building Division might be required, depending on the nature of your pool. If it holds 3,000 or more gallons of water, a permit is necessary, whether the pool is in-ground or above ground. Spas or jacuzzis also require a permit to perform the necessary electrical work.
To stock up on all the supplies you'll need when you're done getting your pool installed or set up, visit the local Leslie's Pool Care location at 7656 Greenback Lane. Additionally, be aware of local pool maintenance company Awesome Pool Services, which is based at 6966 Sunrise Boulevard.
