Public Swimming Pools, Spas, and Special Use Pools

The Fairfield Department of Health inspects public swimming pools, spas, and special use pools to prevent injury, minimize the potential for disease transmission, and provide a safe and healthy aquatic recreational environment. 

Ohio Administrative Code 3701-31 regulates the design, installation, operation, and maintenance of public pools, spas, and special use pools. 

Virginia Graeme Baker Act is federal legislation that took effect on December 19, 2008.  This act requires that all public swimming pools, spas and special use pools have anti-entrapment and anti-evisceration mechanisms in place by December 19, 2008. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is the federal agency tasked with enforcing this legislation. Ohio’s public swimming pools, spas and special use pools must comply with this federal legislation.
