Laws concerning pools vary from state to state, or city to city. Since WikiAnswers is world-wide, I should also mention that laws on ANY topic vary from country to country.
Are there swimming pool laws in Kentucky? Are there animals in the woods? Fish in the ocean?
Several states have enacted removable pool fence laws. This law for all pools has reduced the number of drownings significantly. While no fence is unclimbable, the barrier bet…ween any water feature and a child is of significant importance to reduce the probability of a water related accident.
not that i know of but maybe in your comunity I do not know what kind of a logical answer the above is. Fence laws applyin every city, county, state It is a logical answer bec…ause there are Federal laws that are applied to PUBLIC pools, however, many states, cities, counties, do not have laws that apply to private pools. For example, Alabama complies with the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act for all public pools, however, the Alabama Department of Public Health gives recommendations for what you should do with a private pool. It's a reasonable answer.
Absolutely. Be prepared to pay out big bucks if someone gets hurt or drowns in your pool. You can not get city, county sign off without a fence unless the project is an …illegal one.
In State Laws
Check with your homeowners insurance. The most important thing is child safety. Answer In December of 2007 the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety …Act was signed into law. This law provides grants to states that pass pool barrier guidelines among other safety issues. Since I have never seen a state that will turn down money, more than likely your state does have pool laws. Even if your state and local government does not have pool laws, your homeowners insurance will require a certain level of safety. For tips on pool safety please visit the links below.
Contact the City of Los Angeles Code Enforcement. They should have any/all up to date information pertaining to any laws/city codes that effect how a pool must be fenced.
Action and reaction are always equal and opposite.
Laws regarding swimming pools are usually regulated at the municipal level. Each city creates their own set of rules regarding things like pets, fences, and swimming pools. Th…ese rules are called codes or ordinances. The best way to find your city's codes is to do an internet search with the name of you city and the word "codes" or "ordinances." You can also contact your local city hall.
