Frequently Asked Questions

The Ohio Department of Health must approve the swimming pool to operate through a plan review process. Once approved, the operator must submit an application and fee to Public Health. A swimming pool license will then be issued.

Prior to opening and May 1st of each year, an application and fee must be submitted for all public swimming pools. Contact Public Health for additional requirements.

Public Health recommends these guidelines from Healthy Swimming: Fecal Incident Response.

Any indoor or outdoor structure, chamber, or tank containing a body of water for swimming, diving, or bathing that is intended to be used collectively for swimming, diving, or bathing, and is operated by any person whether as the owner, lessee, operator, licensee, or concessionaire, regardless of usage fees is licensable.

Any indoor or outdoor structure, chamber, or tank containing a body of water for swimming, diving, or bathing located at a dwelling with no more than three families and used exclusively by the residents and their non-paying guests will NOT require licensure. Dwelling includes an individual room or individual suite of rooms at a hotel, motel, or other establishment providing temporary housing.

Swimming pools are to be inspected bi-weekly and as needed.

Contact Public Health to see if plan review will be needed. Public Health will provide the appropriate forms to you. These forms with the applicable fees must be submitted to the Ohio Department of Health for review and approval.
