Raise Height of Pool Deck?

Posted by JTras (My Page) on

Finally going to build our dream house - on our current lot. We hope to maintain our inground pool, but the house will have to be about a foot heigher to conform to building regs. I'd rather not have a step down to our pool deck. Can we add dirt, then pavers to the pool deck to make it flush with the new house?

No. The pool deck needs to drain away from the pool. This is similar to the house needing any runoff drain away from it.

You will wind up having a valley between the house and pool deck. That may require some drainage to be installed.
