PUBLIC SWIMMING POOLS
Public swimming pools, spas and special use pools are regulated under the authority of Chapter 3749 of the Ohio Revised Code(ORC) and Chapter 3701-31 of the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC).
These rules were created to establish minimum standards for the operation, and maintenance of these facilities to protect the community from injury, minimize the potential for disease transmission, and provide a safe and healthy aquatic recreational environment. These rules do not pertain to private residential pools.
WHAT IS A PUBLIC SWIMMING POOL?
Collectively, a public swimming pool is any:

Our inspectors will routinely inspect every public swimming pool (while open to the public) paying attention to water quality, maintenance of filtration and circulation equipment, safety equipment, record-keeping, and the maintenance of the overall facility.
