ZMCHD licenses and inspects public swimming pools, spas and bathing beaches to ensure safe and sanitary conditions at these facilities. Swimming pools are tested for chlorine or other disinfectant levels, pH, Total Alkalinity, Cyanuric Acid, Water Clarity, and other parameters. Facilities are also checked to make sure all equipment is operating properly, required safety equipment is present, life guards (if required) are certified and that there enough guards on duty. Summer pools are usually checked monthly during the operating season. Indoor pools are checked less often, but throughout the entire year.
Bathing Beaches are inspected for safety compliance and water samples are collected and analyzed for bacteria to determine if the water quality is acceptable for swimming.
