Ordering Your Planning Sheets

Owner / Builder and Permit Ready Swimming Pool Plans

We offer both “PERMIT READY“, as well as “OWNER BUILDER” design services for those who wish to engage the “do-it-yourself” approach.

Swimming Pool Layout

What is a Permit Ready Plan…?

This level of planning is focused upon expressing the current Building Code Requirements , diagrammatic exhibits, specifications and other information that are mandated by the Building Department to be represented on a plan for submission in the pursuit of obtaining the official regulator agency’s permission to build.

What is an Owner Builder plan…?

This level of planning can provide an advancing focus for providing building directions that go beyond the basic code compliance requirements and common practices.

Industry standards are not so standard in the swimming pool industry, and as such the simplicity of strictly adhering to just a code compliant installation may leave an installer to make assumptions for the desired objectives in the installation practices.

If an Owner wishes to orchestrate the construction with a much more definitive result in mind, then this is the level of planning that should be considered. The Owner Builder level of planning illustrates much of the time tested experience that comes form our generationally acquired construction experience.

The difference being between the two levels of planning is the time invested in producing the additional planning sheets listed and explained below as Advance Design Assistance.

Advance Design Assistance

Other planning sheets (not required for permit purposes) are also available, which can involve exhibiting a deeper meaning of understanding in order to articulate a more definitive instruction to performing sub-contractors.

Our Owner / Builder Plans provide you with a complete equipment listing of all the manufacturers, model numbers and sizes that can call-out over one-hundred items, which may pertain to specifying your job done correctly!

Equipment Listing

As part of our design efforts, we indicate everything in great “DETAIL” that will be necessary, from the electrical wire-up for a sub-panel to the gas pipe size for a heater.

We organize the “DETAILS” that are pertinent as being 1 thru 82. These numbering assignments are then referenced on the plans as to where each will apply. See the Detail Listing below for the descriptions that allow you to fully understand how to achieve a 1st Class standard from a great set of plans!

Such instructions can be desired by a Homeowner who wishes to reduce independent interpretations by performers and provide a mechanism for authenticating the original intentions being desired for the installation standards.

PROVIDE THE PROJECT ADDRESS
PROVIDE US WITH A LIST OF YOUR "MUST HAVE" ELEMENTS OF DESIRE I.E., POOL, SPA, CABO SHELF, WATER FEATURE, FIRE PIT, ETC...
WE CAN PROVIDE TWO DIFFERENT LEVELS OF DESIGN SERVICE. AS EXPLAINED ON THE PAGE ABOVE THIS WILL INVOLVE MORE OR LESS PLANNING SHEETS. PLEASE SELECT THE LEVEL THAT BEST SUITS YOUR DESIRES FOR INFORMATION.
MOST BUILDING DEPT.'S SHALL REQUIRE STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING, AS ONE OF THE PREREQUISITES FOR OBTAINING A PERMIT TO BUILD. IF A PROJECT HAS UNIQUE FEATURES (WATERFALL, SITE RETAINING WALLS, ETC.) THEN THE STANDARD "BOILER PLATE" WOULD NOT SUFFICE AND A "SITE SPECIFIC" WOULD NEED TO BE PROVIDED IN ORDER TO ADDRESS THE CONSTRUCTION APPROACH FOR ANY SPECIALITY FEATURES.
STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING CAN INVOLVE A STANDARD APPROACH TO THE EXISTING CONDITIONS WHICH ANTICIPATES NORMAL OR EXPANSIVE LOAD VALUES FOR THE IMPOSING SOIL PRESSURES. IF THE EXISTING CONDITIONS AND OR OTHER CONSIDERATIONS FALL OUTSIDE THIS CRITERIA FOR THESE STANDARDS, THEN "SITE SPECIFIC" STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING CONSIDERATIONS MUST EVALUATE THE UNIQUENESS OF THE SITE'S GEOTECHNICAL CONDITIONS AND CONSIDER A STRUCTURAL REMEDY THAT CAN ACCOMMODATE THE DESIGN. IF A "SITE SPECIFIC" APPROACH BECOMES NECESSARY, THEN THE SUBMISSION OF A "PLOT PLAN" MUST BE ACCOMPANIED WITH A CURRENT SOILS REPORT (CERTIFIED WITHIN PAST 2-YEARS).
THESE ARE THE FIVE (5) MAJOR POOL EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURERS. WE RECOMMEND "PENTAIR" AS WE BELIEVE THAT HAVE THE BEST PRODUCT WARRANTY SERVICE SUPPORT NATIONWIDE
PLEASE SELECT THE APPROPRIATE P-SHEETS (WHICH ARE SUBJECT SPECIFIC LAYOUT SHEETS) THAT CAN BEST DESCRIBE THE INFORMATION BEING REQUESTED.
PLEASE SELECT THE APPROPRIATE PD-DETAIL SHEETS (WHICH ARE COMPONENT SPECIFIC SHEETS THAT PROVIDE UP TO TWELVE (12) DETAILS EACH).
IN THE CHANCE THAT YOU HAVE OTHER CONSIDERATIONS THAT WE HAVE FAILED TO IDENTIFY, PLEASE PROVIDE US WITH A DESCRIPTION FOR WHAT THESE MAY BE.
PLEASE SELECT THE FORM OF PAYMENT YOU'D PREFER. REMEMBER CREDIT CARDS AND PAYPAL HAVE A TRANSACTION FEE THAT WILL BE PART OF THE COSTS WE CHARGE YOU.
IN PRODUCING A DESIGN FOR OUR CLIENTS, WE MUST REMAIN COGNIZANT OF THEIR BUDGETARY EXPECTATIONS. IT DOES NEITHER OF US ANY GOOD TO END UP DESIGNING SOMETHING THAT TURNS OUT TO BE ECONOMICALLY INFEASIBLE, CORRECT? SO...JUST LIKE WHEN YOU'RE BUYING A HOUSE, THINK OF THE BACKYARD AS A PIECE OF A HOUSE AND YOU KNOW WHAT SIZE HOUSE IS AFFORDABLE. SO SET THE BUDGET AND LEAVE ABOUT +/-10% MORE FOR UPGRADE CONSIDERATIONS.
