Anyone have a rule for the size of these pools? Nothing larger than a baby pool?

I have someone moving out soon who brought a gigantic inflatable pool onto the property (equivalent to an above ground pool size) and I'm trying to come up with a new rule for my leases for future tenants since I hadn't encountered this issue until recently. Thanks.

J,

My lease is clear: Swimming pools and trampolines are not allowed. Exception: children's wading pools no more than 6" deep and must be emptied each evening.

I recently paid $13,000 to replace the finger system of a septic system, I believe the fingers were crushed by the res bringing in a truck load of sand to make a bed for his $300 WalMart pool.

Thanks. They put their inflatable pool over the drainfield (there is septic at this house), before I found out about it and told them it had to go, and then they removed it. I don't think they put sand down, it was just over the dirt of the yard.

Is this something I need to be concerned about? Is a septic inspection the only way to see if the drainfield was damaged or is there another way I can test when they move out? Thanks. --72.188.xxx.xxx

NO pools trampolines, trailers, yard art, or other "improvements" without written permission and extra $$$

"Why do i have to pay extra to park my boat/trailer/RV/junky truck aka "classic car" in the yard?"

1. Mowing company has to mow around it and it involves extra weed eating which we are billed for, and you pay.

2. Trailers etc... kill the grass which has to be tilled up and re-sodded then watered to restore the yard after you leave resulting in extra expense and labor.....which you pay for.

3. Insurance says NO pools/trampolines etc...

Extra vehicle parking can be a source of extra cash....charge $25/mo to park the extra vehicle. --137.119.xxx.xxx

Give them a map to the city park with pool, nothing like this at my places either, trampoline is an attractive nuisance and our city will take it down bill me which gets added to the next rent cycle. Tenant - Hey what happened to my pool - just relax the city bill will be along soon for 3-4n hundred bux and you can recover it at the building dept garage after you pay the bill. --76.188.xxx.xx

No pools.

I used to allow one ring inflatable kiddie pools and those cheap shallow plastic pools from Walmart. Then I had a tenant get one of those for her dogs to cool off in and never cleaned it. She moved out and left a pond of really stinky green slime with a good layer of mud at the bottom.

It was too heavy to lift to dump it out and the smell was gagging.

To top it off, the dogs went into the stinky water and then into the house so the house also stank. And, of course, grass was dead under the pool. --174.216.xx.xxx

I don't allow pools of any size, even kiddie - and neither do I allow slip 'n slides. The reason I give is the liability, but I also do it to keep the grass from getting killed off.

I allow sprinklers in the grass, but in the shade only (bright sun and water is bad for the grass), and the sprinklers and their hose must be moved to a different area each night - which coincidentally waters the grass on the tenant's dime! --71.175.xxx.xx

Tenants aren't responsible enough to take the trash out on the weekly collection day, so what makes up think they will keep the water balanced, vacuum the pool and clean the filter. Obtain a renters policy with pool liability coverage protecting the landlord? --47.156.xx.xx

Thanks...I know I don't want any of the large pools...I was mainly wondering if I should ban baby pools too. I guess I got my answer. --72.188.xxx.xxx

I allow wading pools shallow enough that a toddler may stand up. Reason I give is most homes in my area have basement foundation problems, and if a large (say, 2 foot deep) pool were to collapse, it CAN take out a basement wall. There are fun videos on YouTube of that, if anyone wants to watch. Well, not fun for the persons in the videos...

Grass at my homes isn't any great thing, so easy enough to reseed. But, I am considering putting some sand in an area just for that anyway. Its either going to be sand or mulch, area is putzy to mow.

Brad-yikes! Years ago my husband almost let a tree trimmer drive his cherry -picker truck over our septic field. I had worked late shift, but hauled myself out of bed in time to stop that. Glad I did. Ouch! Sorry for your repair. --172.58.xxx.xx

We do not allow pools, kiddie pools, trampolines, etc. Their is too much liability for drownings, getting severely hurt and we all know they are going for the person with the he deepest pockets to sue. It perfectly states it in it our lease. --24.253.xxx.xx

I've been a landlord in OR since mid-90s. I always run Credit, Eviction, and Criminal Hist reports as part of my Applicant screening, & have 3 pages of Addendum items added to my up-to-date Rental Agreement. But, within the last 3 years, I've had more & more problems with tenants ignoring the provisions of what they've signed, stretching the intent, and/or 'taking liberties' by doing things without my permission. Trampolines and 'pools' of varying sizes are just some examples.

When I talk to them about pools, I always point out the unintended danger of drowning by small children and injury by older folks. Then I tell them my insurance doesn't allow it. --75.107.xxx.xxx

At my apartments, I allow kiddie pools only, with the requirement that there must always be an adult in the immediate vicinity if there is any water in the pool at all; and, it must be completely emptied and put away when not in use. Non-compliance results in confiscation of the pool, to be returned upon move-out. This policy was put in place after a tenant put up an above ground pool without my knowledge and filled it with my water. She very reluctantly removed it when I told her the insurance would not allow it. No trampolines allowed. This is all now specified in the lease and resident handbook.

At my SFR's, the same applied, but if anyone asked about above ground pools, I told them I would approve it if: (1) it was completely enclosed within a 4ft high fence with a locking gate; (2) they maintain a renters insurance policy with a minimum of $1 million liability; (3) they sign a separate pool agreement/lease addendum accepting all liability for injury or damages; (4) they obtain any and all necessary permits from the town at their expense, and comply with any additional requirements imposed by the town at their expense. After I told them all that, I never had anyone request an above ground pool.
