Arizona Swimming Pool Rules and Regulations 

Arizona pool regulations are designed to protect public health and safety. All pools and spas must post a Maximum Bathing Load sign to ensure that the facility does not exceed the recommended number of bathers. In addition, all pools must have at least two Coast Guard Approved Ring Buoys along with 50 feet of throw line for rescue purposes. Bathers are also required to follow instructions from the Maricopa Health Code, which include observing sanitary practices, never swimming alone, and not using glass containers within the pool enclosure. To maintain pool safety, swimmers should always be supervised and non-swimmers should remain in shallow waters or stay out of the water entirely.
