Colorado Swimming Pool Rules and Regulations 

Public pools in Colorado are required to have certain safety equipment on site at all times. This includes a first-aid kit, rescue tube, and ring buoy so that you can keep your pool enjoyable for everyone who swims there!

Colorado pool regulations are designed to ensure the safety of swimmers and maintain water quality. Swimming pools are required to open during certain hours and have a limited capacity, typically based on the size of the pool and its intended use. Additionally, gas chlorine rooms must be equipped with a Hazardous Materials Classification sign (Chlorine Danger) affixed to the entry door.
