SWIMMING POOL REGULATIONS

Citizens and visitors enjoy the 1,800-plus public swimming pools in Fulton County with the confidence that the water is clean and safe. Assurance of clean and safe public pools is partially due to the permitting requirements and routine inspections performed by Environmental Health Services. Public swimming pools are defined as all facilities for collective use by the public for swimming, regardless of whether the person is the owner, operator, lesser, lessee or licensor. Private residential pools are not included in this description.  All public swimming pools are permitted annually and inspections are performed routinely based on their operating season. Inspections include an examination of structures used for bathing, recreation, swimming or other related purposes, together with buildings, appurtenances and equipment required or used in connection with the swimming pool. Plans for of all new pools are reviewed and must be approved by EHS prior to construction.

 

A Federal law passed in 2007 and amended in 2014—the Virginia Graeme Baker (VGB) Pool and Spa Safety Act—requires that all public pools and spas with a single main drain, other than an unblockable drain, be equipped with one or more additional devices or systems designed to prevent suction entrapment.  Such additional devices or systems should also include a safety vacuum.  Fulton County Environmental Health Services inspects for compliance with the VGB Act and urges pool owners or their authorized agents to provide proof of compliance.

 

Permits for pools that are operated all-year-round expire March 1st of each year.  Permits for pools that are operated on a seasonal basis expire on May 1st of each year.  Click on the links below to learn more about the VGB Act and what you will need to do to avoid delays in getting your pool permitted for operation for 2018. Below are links to related forms and applications.
