You might want to define:
- Small?
- Temporary?
- Shared backyard?

Example:
A small 1.5m diameter paddling pool which is inflated and placed on a patio that is clearly demarcated as "yours" wouldn't be a problem.

A TiMow sized behemoth might be frowned upon by your neighbours unless they get to use it.

There's also common sense - as you say - the backyard is shared and if other families have small children who play there unattended, the parents may not be happy if a swimming or paddling pool is left there from a "drowning hazard" point of view.

Re: Backyard temporary swimming pool

If it's shared, you will need permission from every person sharing it.

Re: Backyard temporary swimming pool

I'm not aware of any regulations.

You probably need, definitely want, the OK of the landlord, particularly if the pool is up longer than a day or two (I think the grass underneath may be damaged somewhat if it's up for weeks).

Not sure, but you'll probably also need the consent of your co-tenants as it affects the way they can use the common ground. This is particularly important if children are around: while a pool is a nice thing it's also a bit of a hazard. Plus, in such a case you should expect for the parents to only say OK if the children are allowed in, too.
