Codes and standards come at us from all sides, it seems, and every year or so those codes and standards are updated creating a feeling of being lost in the woods for contractors, designers, enforcement and permitting agencies. In this course, we’ll differentiate between codes, standards, and ordinances. Examine what these documents require of all parties affected by them and conclude with providing background and intent on the provisions within these documents.

Learning Objectives:

  • Acquaint building officials, health officials, pool contractors, and designers with the definition of ‘standard’, ‘code’, and ‘ordinance’ and how they differ in application.
  • Familiarize these stakeholders with the current provisions and requirements of the standards, codes and ordinances governing swimming pool and spa construction.
  • Discuss and enable code officials to promulgate check lists for their review staff and their field staff regarding pools and spas.
  • Create a bridge between code officials and contractors to streamline the process of permitting by defining expectations.
  • Define swimming pool and spa regulations for a more consistent process across jurisdictions.
  • Provide learners with helpful graphs, charts, and spreadsheets to simplify the calculating and checking of calculations needed for pool and spa permits.
  • Examine document and educational resources available to them through the PHTA and ICC.
  • Most importantly, to save lives.
