How do water restrictions affect building a new pool and renovating a swimming pool? Currently the City of Cape Town have level 5 water restrictions in place. This does NOT affect the installation or renovation of a swimming pool, you can build and renovate pools, no problem.
Will I get a fine?
You will not get a fine for this work being carried out. You will only get a fine if you do not have a pool cover of sorts on the pool after the installation as you are not allowed to top up the pool without a cover.
