What To Expect During Your Commercial Pool Inspection.
Keeping the commercial pool in good shape is important to ensure people’s safety. If you are looking for a commercial pool repair then schedule a safety inspection that can tell you about the problems that may be present in the system. These are the following things that you can expect to be checked during the commercial pool inspection.
Avoiding any electrical shock for swimmers in your commercial swimming pool is important. Wrongly wired equipment, swimming pool lights, improperly installed junction boxes, and badly bonded metallic elements are the potential electrical hazards that will be checked for in a pool inspection.
Electrical grounding and bonding are essential elements of a safe pool. During the commercial pool inspection, the inspector will check the pool motor, pool pump, lights, heaters, and any other components that rely on electricity for proper bonding and grounding.
Maintaining the right amount of chemicals in the pool can be crucial for keeping it safe for swimmers. During the pool inspection, things like pH, calcium hardness, cyanuric acid, chlorine, and total alkalinity will be tested for appropriate levels.
Drain Cover Safety
All public pools are required to have drain covers that meet specific safety regulations. Also, if the pool has one drain, then the drain should be outfitted or disabled with an additional anti-entrapment system.
Gravity Feed Systems
Finally, the commercial pool’s gravity feed system, which is needed for avoiding drowning by suction entrapment, will be inspected. Gravity feed systems are the only 100% successful and approved method for avoiding suction entrapment, and the commercial pool inspection results may recommend pool repairs if this safety system is not functioning properly.
The pool inspector should also ensure that the pool complies with ADA lift regulations for recreational pools as per the Department of Justice in 2010 under the Disabilities Act.
