To be able to prevent accidental child drowning, public pools must be able to meet specific width and height requirements between the pickets. Specifically, the enclosures of the pools must be:

  • A Minimum Height of 4-Feet
  • A 4-Inch Ball Must Not Be Able To Go Under, Through Or Around

Furthermore, the gates of public pools must also be able to self-latch or self-close if they're released from 6-inches from the latch. This is done in order to prevent a child from being able to enter the area of the pool without being observed by an adult. In order to ensure latches are safe, they cannot be:

  • Defective
  • Rusty
  • Nonworking
