June 1, 2021 the 2018 International Swimming Pool and Spa Code is in effect.
Any structure intended for swimming or recreational bathing that contains water more than 24 inches (610 mm) deep. This includes in-ground, above-ground and on-ground swimming pools, hot tubs and spas.
The pool barrier design controls are intended to provide protection against potential drownings and near-drownings by restricting access to swimming pools, spas and hot tubs. All swimming pools must meet the minimum barrier requirements.
Please contact a Plans Examiner should you have questions relating to the barrier requirements.
Electrical permit shall be obtained from Washington State Department of Labor and Industries.
