Swimming Pools


The Houston Health Department's pool safety program works to eliminate dangerous situations that occur when pools and other aquatic facilities are not kept up to standard safety protocols.

Pool safety investigators inspect commercial pools such as those at hotels, motels, and apartment buildings. They will also inspect residential pools when asked by owners. The program’s goal is not only to make sure the pool is up to standard, but to also educate the managers of the facilities in high standards of pool safety.
