What type of homeowners insurance do I need if I am installing a pool?
A: Before your pool is installed, be sure to find out about local building codes and safety standards such as required fences, gates, locks, and safety equipment.
After making sure your pool meets all local safety codes, you should contact your home insurance agent. Your home insurance agent can discuss your liability coverage with you and help you determine if your coverage is sufficient. Most pool owners choose to increase their liability coverage to protect them in the event of a lawsuit involving their pool. Also, check out our Pool Safety Tips for some extra ideas on how to prevent swimming pool related accidents on your property.
