The Swimming Pool Inspection Program is designed to protect the public from the risk of disease and injury at public swimming pools and bathing places. The governing authority for this program is Florida Administrative Code 64E-9 and Florida Statute Chapter 514.

Inspections are conducted twice a year and entail, but are not limited to:
  • Water Quality and Chemistry
  • Pool Cleanliness and Safety Measures
  • Proof of contract with Pool Service Technician or proof of Pool Operator Training
  • Pool Maintenance Records
  • Location and condition of bathroom facilities

If you wish to open a public swimming pool you will need an initial operating permit:
An Operating Permit is issued after:

  • Permit Application through our department Swimming Pool Operating Permit (29.0kb; doc)
  • The jurisdictional Local Building Department must review and approve plans AND inspect the pool construct prior to the inspection of the pool for an Initial Operating Permit by the Florida Department of Health in Liberty County
  • Proof of “required training” through the Department of Health. All persons employed to service the pool must have proof of the Public Pool Service Technician Certification
