Swimming Pools
Poorly operated swimming pools and spas can transmit infectious diseases and skin disorders, including eye, ear, nose and throat infectious. Needless tragic deaths from drowning may be prevented if all pools are equipped with a lifeguard or the proper safety equipment. The City of Clevelandís Public Health Sanitarianís are certified as pool operators to ensure proper procedures are being carried out, which will guarantee our citizens safety while utilizing various types of pools around the city. The Sanitarians routinely conduct inspections of all pools within the City of Cleveland.

These inspections are performed using Ohio Revised Code Chapter 3749 as it relates to Ohio Public Swimming Pool, Spa, and Special Use Pool Rules. All operators are required to keep records of water quality testing results and accidents on a Weekly Operation Report, which is a vital part of the Cityís inspection procedure.
