My new house has backyard space of 6mts x 14.5mts. There is a sewer easement running at 3m. So space till easement is 3mts x 14.5mts.
Is this kind of backyard enough for a small plunge pool/spa ?
Can pools be built close to easements ?

Building close to a sewer can be done. The easement will generally include the zone of influence . The actual pipe will be centre of easement . We often install pools 600mm away from the pipe . To do this you need to engage a water service Co ordinator . Alternatively engage a pool builder who specialises in plunge pools who is familiar with regulations and process

A above ground spa , pool is worse as the zone of influence is a 45deg angels from the pipe up . The deeper in the ground the closer it can go .
Are you in NSW because these measurements are NSW Regs . They are slightly different in each state .

I am in Melbourne, VIC. I was thinking that for an over the ground SPA, I could extend the decking around my alfresco area and then use part of alfresco for the SPA. I have a 3 mts backyard length from Alfresco to easement and further 3 mts to fence.
