Recreational Health Program (Pools)
EHD provides regulatory oversight for the proper disinfection and safety of public and semi-public pools and spas. Public pools can be accessed by any member of the public and are normally provided by a local government entity, such as a local city. A semi-public pool is normally found at motels, hotels, apartment complexes, RV parks, etc.
Public pools are inspected monthly during the season they are open. Semi-public pools are inspected twice during their open season.
The rules for pools and spas are found in AAC Title 9, Article 8 at this link http://www.azsos.gov/PUBLIC_SERVICES/Title_09/9-08.htm#Article_8
The new Virginia Baker law is to protect people from drowning as a result of suction at the pool drains. These pools must be retrofitted to prevent these accidents from occurring.
EHD does not enforce this law. It is a Federal Consumer Protection law enforced by the federal government. The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) may need a permit for any changes to the piping designs. The law is found at this link http://www.poolsafely.gov/
