Connecticut Swimming Pool Rules and Regulations 

In Connecticut, pool regulations are established to maintain a safe and healthy environment for all patrons. All public pools must post Pool Rules as part of the Health Code 19-13-B33b and display them in both the pool area and public dressing rooms. These rules cover topics such as what attire is expected of swimmers,  diving safety guidelines, and safety equipment requirements. In addition to these requirements, all spas must post Spa Rules that cover topics including proper chemical levels for sanitation, temperature control guidelines, safety equipment requirements, and other general spa maintenance protocols. Lastly, operators are responsible for complying with Connecticut's pool regulations on a daily basis to ensure a safe environment for everyone involved.
