Swimming Pool Regs

As summer gets into full swing and temperatures continue rise, residents flock to community pools to beat he heat and relax. For multifamily communities, the beginning of summer provides an invaluable opportunity to ensure that their pools are up to scratch and encourage residents to become well-versed in water safety.
To accomplish those goals, local and state organizations have created comprehensive guides to assist you in meeting codes and requirements. The City of Houston
and the State of Texas
provide pages featuring FAQs (including discussions on bacteria, signage, fees and penalties), safety guidelines, full texts of city pool and spa ordinances and photos of past code violations. HAA encourages renters and managers to check out our Safe In My Place Water Safety
page for more information on the Apartment Splash
program and helpful tips for parents and residents.
