There are two different types of pools: year round and seasonal.
Year Round Pools
Year round pools are open from January 1 through December 31 each year. Year round pools have two inspections a year.
Seasonal pools are open from April 1 through October 31. Seasonal pools have one inspection a year while it is in use.
Environmental Health Specialists look for temperature, filtration, pH and the levels of chemicals in the water at each inspection as well as safety hazards. There is an annual fee for the permit to operate a pool or other recreational water (such as a hot tub or wading pool) and the permit must be renewed every year.
