Because the City of Corcoran abides by the State Building Code some swimming pools require a permit, while some are exempt. The rule of thumb is as follows:
Pools that do not need a building permit:
• Prefabricated, above ground, less than 24 inches in depth and less than 5,000 gallons
Pools that need a "one-time" building permit fee:
• Prefabricated, above ground, over 24 inches in depth and/or exceed 5,000 gallons (aka – temporary pool). IE - 30 inches high and 3000 gallons needs a permit.
Pools that need a building permit:
• All in ground pools
• Above ground pools that exceed 24 inches and 5,000 gallons and are permanent in nature
Please note that an electrical and/or plumbing permit may also be required. Currently the City has no ordinance for a fence requirement.
