I have a Sonso Surrund sound system on my in-house wi-fi and I want to set up 2 Play One speakers at my pool on another wi-fi how do I do that?

Why is the SSID (network name) and password different for the pool area? It would help if you would explain your network structure.

Hi

You’ll need a second router with a different SSID in order to have a constant connection. You also have to create a second Sonos account. 

An alternative to a permanent router is to use a travel router (cheaper) with a different SSID connected to a hotspot. You still need a second Sonos account.

Know that your in-house system and the pool speakers will not be able to sync music (i.e. group together).

No. You can have multiple SSIDs and/or multiple systems on the same subnet.

No you don’t. Multiple systems can share the same account.

I don’t know quite why the OP wants to set the pool up as a separate system, hence the request for more info about the network arrangements.
