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?

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

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

 

You also have to create a second Sonos account. 

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

 

Know that your in-house system and the pool speaker will not be able to sync music.

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. 

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).
