The focus of this program is to ensure that all public pools are free of safety hazards and risk of communicable diseases. Public Pools include swimming pools, spa pools, and wade pools at apartments, condominiums, townhouses, hotels, motels, schools, community parks, commercial sites, health clubs, mobile home parks, campgrounds, auto courts and resorts. Routine pool inspections are conducted to cover issues from construction to water chemistry and operations. For more information or questions regarding specific public pool, please contact us.
Owners or operators planning to construct or remodel a public pool are required to submit three sets of plans with specifications and obtain approval prior to start of construction. A Plan Check fee must be paid at the time of plan submission. For more information regarding plan check submission, contact a plan check representative at (714) 433-6074.
