Pool Safety

The Building Inspector wants to remind all pool owners that pools require fence protection of 4' in height when the depth of the water is 24 inches (two feet) or greater. No exceptions are allowed for inflatable pools of any type. Disaster can strike in the blink of an eye and in much less than 24 inches of water. For more information on pool safety, see Section 3109 of the ICC International Building Code, or call the Building Inspector's office at (781) 293-6557.
