Q: I recently installed a pool in one of my buildings. Now that summer is coming, we’ll be opening it to our tenants. What inspections and obligations do we need to fulfill to meet safety and health standards?
JA: Firstly, good for you for putting a pool in your building, and even better that you’re being proactive about its compliance!
Pools are a great addition to any building, but they do require proper maintenance and inspections. Therefore, you will want to be sure to do regular water quality testing and proper maintenance of pool equipment.
You should also make sure to comply with fencing and barrier requirements and adhere to safety standards for pool operations and local health department regulations.
And more importantly, you’ll want to perform regular inspections of your pool.
