The week after Memorial Day has a special meaning to most residential communities because it’s typically the week when pool season officially starts. Children shriek for joy, while property managers fight away their tears. Because pool season is no cake walk. California’s health department has very strict code enforcement for anyone operating a pool for the public, and property managers would be wise to adhere to the rules. Because nothing will upset your residents quite like a pool that gets shut down on a 100 degree day. 

So what is the best way to make sure that your pool is up to snuff? Maintenance and care. Pools that do not drain over the cold season should be maintained weekly by a professional. Some property management companies use their own crew, but most outsource this job to pool service providers due to the amount of responsibilities. The chemicals need to be vigorously maintained, and the pool signage needs to be updated every 1-2 years, depending on the new signage requirements in your county. Lastly, the fence and the gate surrounding the pool needs to be in tiptop shape. Remember that a faulty pool gate could spell huge problems should a child wander in unsupervised. Do not put yourself in that situation. Following and enforcing all the pool rules 100% of the time is the best way to keep your hands clean. Otherwise, be prepared for the consequences.
