Public Swimming Pools

Florida Department of Health in Broward County

Florida Department of Health in Broward County permits and inspects public swimming pools to assure safety and sanitary requirements are met.  Before construction or modification of a public pool, written approval must be obtained from the appropriate Building Department. Construction and modification plans must be prepared, signed and sealed by a professional engineer licensed in the State of Florida. Examples of modifications which would require approval include non-equivalent changes or additions to filtration and treatment equipment or to the pool structure.

Before a newly constructed or modified pool is placed into service, an initial operating permit must be obtained and the pool must receive a satisfactory operating inspection from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County.  Public swimming pools are inspected twice yearly in Broward County.
