Swimming Pool & Spa Inspections
Threats to physical safety and the spread of communicable diseases are hazards associated with improperly managed swimming pools and spas. Every year, all pools and spas, all pools accessible to the public in Council Bluffs, are inspected by the Public Health Department. Things that could compromise physical safety, such as improperly covered drains and outlets, trip hazards on the deck and the pool exterior, security and supervision of the facility and improperly balanced water chemistry, are evaluated and corrected by the inspectors and the pool managers.

Sanitation of pools and spas relies upon adequate disinfectant levels, frequent and complete testing of the water, monthly laboratory tests for bacteria and supervision of patrons and bathers. During inspection, all of these aspects of pool management are also examined and discussed. The Health Department inspects pools on an annual basis.
