Has anyone installed a pool recently on St. Croix? I'm getting conflicting information on the steps necessary to get a pool installed on recently purchased (12/2019) property on the island. If anyone has information on the steps involved and the required documents and information needed, my wife and I would certainly appreciate it!
Hope all are safe and healthy on the island!

I think the most difficult part is finding a trustworthy contractor to do it. Beyond that, you might check with DPNR to see if any sort of permit is required.
If you need a contractor reference, PM me. I have a friend who had his pool built by a reputable local contractor and was very happy with the results.
I'm guessing I'm the friend vicanuck is referring to. I had a pool installed 7 years ago. Very happy with install. Crazy slope/drop off to deal with. Dude we bought house from said not a chance we could put a pool there. But it's here. Sports style, no deep end, volleyball net in middle, built-in table and benches. All tiled bottom and sides. No unexpected expenses and timing was perfect. PM me if you need more info. And yes, you need a permit and a submitted design by an architect or engineer. Even though we had all of the proper permits the only inspection we had was by the electrical inspector. And he was very thorough.
