Ordinances Concerning Swimming Pool SafetyMost swimmers are unaware of the swimming pool’s slope, bottom surface configuration, and depth. They lack the training necessary to recognize the initial stages of drowning, and it’s why certified lifeguards must be present at commercial swimming pools. The following requirements are included in basic swimming pool ordinances applicable to all motels and hotels:
- The slope of the pool should not exceed one foot for every three feet of horizontal length where the shallow and deep ends meet.
- At the pool’s shallow end, a self-latching gate must be installed.
- A ring buoy and shepherd’s crook should be mounted halfway down the swimming pool’s length.
