CURRENT REQUIREMENTS FOR SWIMMING POOLS
CONTAINED IN THE STATE FIRE PREVENTION AND
BUILDING CODE (THE “UNIFORM CODE”)
(June 2008)
Introduction
The State Uniform Fire Prevention and Building Code (the “Uniform Code™) is promulgated by the
State Fire Prevention and Building Code Council (the “Code Council”) pursuant to Article 18 of the
Executive Law. The Uniform Code includes provisions contained in Parts 1219 to 1228 of Title 19
of the New York Code, Rules and Regulations (the “NYCRR”) and the provisions contained in the
publications that are mentioned in Parts 1220 to 1227. Those publications include the 2007 editions
of the Residential Code of New York State, the Building Code of New York State, the Plumbing Code
of New York State, the Mechanical Code of New York State, the Fuel Gas Code of New York State,
the Fire Code of New York State, the Property Maintenance Code of New York State, and the
Existing Building Code of New York.
The Uniform Code includes a number of provisions relating to swimming pools. This document is
intended to summarize the requirements for swimming pools currently found in the Uniform Code.
Please note that local laws regarding fencing and other safety requirements for swimming pools may
be more restrictive than requirements for swimming pools contained in the Uniform Code. If you
are considering the purchase of a swimming pool, you should review the Uniform Code provisions
summarized in this document and, in addition, you should consult the local laws, ordinances, codes
and regulations of the municipality where the pool is to be installed for any further requirements.
Definition of “swimming pool”
The term “swimming pool” is defined in the Uniform Code as “any structure, basin, chamber or tank
which is intended for swimming, diving, recreational bathing or wading and which contains, is
designed to contain, or is capable of containing water more than 24 inches (610 mm) deep at any
point. This includes in-ground, above-ground and on-ground pools; indoor pools: hot tubs: spas; and
fixed-in-place wading pools.” '
NOTE: A pool which is capable of containing more that 24 inches of water is a “swimming
pool” (and is subject to all applicable Uniform Code provisions relating to
“swimming pools”) even if the pool is filled to a depth of less than 24 inches.
Barrier Requirements: Outdoor Residential Swimming Pools
An outdoor residential swimming pool must be provided with a barrier which completely surrounds
the swimming pool and obstructs access to the swimming pool. The barrier may consist of a fence,
a wall, a building wall, or any combination thereof.> The barrier must be at least 4 feet (48 inches)
high, and must satisfy certain specified requirements (which are discussed in more detail below).
Access gates must satisfy the requirements applicable to barriers, as well as certain additional
requirements (which are discussed in more detail below). In addition, access gates must be securely
locked with a key, combination or other child-proof lock sufficient to prevent access to the
swimming pool through such gate when the swimming pool is not in use or supervised.
NOTE: In general, the barrier requirements discussed in this document apply to all swimming
pools, without regard to the date of construction or installation of the pool.’
NOTE: As mentioned above, the definition of “swimming pool” includes hot tubs and spas.
However, a hot tub or spa with a safety cover that complies with reference standard
ASTM F 1346, entitled Standard Performance Specification for Safety Covers and
Labeling Requirements for All Covers for Swimming Pools, Spas and Hot Tubs, is
exempt from the barrier requirements discussed here.
NOTE: The principal purpose of the Uniform Code’s barrier requirements is to make
swimming pools inaccessible to children. The specific requirements discussed below
are intended to prevent a child from crawling under the barrier, fitting through the
barrier, or climbing over the barrier. The requirements for access gates are intended
to prevent a child from opening an access gate.
Barriers provided for outdoor residential swimming pools must satisfy the following requirements:
. The barrier must completely surround the swimming pool and must obstruct access to the
swimming pool.
- The barrier must be at least 4 feet (48 inches) high.
. The space between the bottom of the barrier and the ground cannot exceed 2 inches.
* In the case of an above-ground pool, the barrier may be at ground level or mounted on top
of the pool structure; however, if the barrier is mounted on top of the pool structure, the
space between the top of the pool structure and the bottom of the barrier cannot exceed 4
inches. See Figure 3109.4.1 on Page 3.
5
Any opening in the barrier must be small enough to prevent the passage of a 4-inch-diameter
sphere through the opening. See Figure 3109.4.1.1 on Page 3.

Where the barrier is composed of diagonal members, such as a lattice fence, the opening
formed by the diagonal members cannot exceed 1.75 inches.
Access gates must satisfy the requirements stated above, and with the following additional
requirements:
. All gates must be self-closing.
° In addıtion, ıf the gate is a pedestrian access gate, the gate must open
outward, away from the pool.
. All gates shall be self-latching, with the latch handle located within the enclosure (i.e,
on the pool side of the enclosure) and at least 40 inches (1016 mm) above grade.
° In addition, if the latch handle is located less than 54 inches (1372 mm) from
the bottom of the gate, the latch handle shall be located at least 3 inches (76
mm) below the top of the gate, and neither the gate nor the barrier shall have
any opening greater than 0.5 inch (12.7 mm) within 18 inches (457 mm) of
the latch handle.
° All gates shall be securely locked with a key, combination or other child proof lock
sufficient to prevent access to the swimming pool through such gate when the
swimming pool is not in use or supervised.
A building wall can form part of the required barrier. However, where a wall of a dwelling
serves as part of the barrier, at least one of the following requirements must be satisfied:
. the pool must be equipped with a powered safety cover in compliance with reference
standard ASTM F1346, entitled Standard Performance Specification for Safety
Covers and Labeling Requirements for All Covers for Swimming Pools, Spas and
Hot Tubs: or
all doors with direct access to the pool through that wall must be equipped with an
alarm which (1) produces an audible warning when the door and its screen, if present,
are opened, (2) sounds continuously for a minimum of 30 seconds immediately after
the door is opened, (3) is capable of being heard throughout the house during normal
household activities, (4) automatically resets under all conditions, and (5) is equipped
with a manual means, such as touchpad or switch, to deactivate the alarm
temporarily for a single opening (such deactivation cannot last for more than 15
seconds, and the deactivation switch[es] must be located at least 54 inches above the
threshold of the door); or
other means of protection, such as self-closing doors with self-latching devices,
which are approved by the governing body and which afford a degree of protection
not less than the protection afforded by the powered safety cover and door alarm
described above, must be provided.
In the case of an above-ground pool, the pool structure itself can serve as a part of the
required barrier, provided that the pool structure is sufficiently rigid to obstruct access to the
pool. However, where an above-ground pool structure is used as a barrier or where the
barrier is mounted on top of the pool structure, and the means of access is a ladder or steps,
then:
the ladder or steps shall be capable of being secured, locked or removed to prevent
access, or the ladder or steps shall be surrounded by a barrier which meets the
requirements of Items 1 through 9 above; and
when the ladder or steps are secured, locked or removed, any opening created shall
not allow the passage of a 4-inch-diameter sphere.
Barriers shall be located so as to prohibit permanent structures, equipment or similar objects
from being used to climb the barriers.
Barrier Requirements: Indoor Residential Swimming Pools
All walls surrounding an indoor residential swimming pool must comply with the above-stated
requirements for building walls used as all or part of a barrier around an outdoor residential
swimming pool.*
Barrier Requirements: Public Swimming Pools
A public swimming pool must be completely enclosed by a fence at least 4 feet in height or a screen
enclosure. Openings in the fence must not permit the passage of a 4-inch diameter sphere. The
fence or screen enclosure must be equipped with self-closing and self-latching gates.’
See also section 302.7.2.1 of the Property Maintenance Code of New York State, which provides that
an approved enclosure, at least 4 feet in height, must be provided around outdoor swimming pools,
so that such pools are inaccessible to children. The enclosure may surround either the pool area or
the property.
NOTE: The State Sanitary Code (10 NYCRR Chapter 1) is a regulation promulgated by the
New York State Department of Health. Subpart 6-1 of the State Sanitary Code
applies to all swimming pools except (1) a swimming pool “owned and/or maintained
by an individual for the use of his family and friends; (2) spa pools used under
medical supervision or associated with hospitals; and (3) float tank or relaxation tank
used for solitary body immersion in skin-temperature salt water.” Therefore, Subpart
6-1 applies to most “public” swimming pools. If a swimming pool is subject to the
provisions of Subpart 6-1 of the State Sanitary Code, then
° the pool must be enclosed within a fence or other barrier, at least four feet
high, which can only be entered by bathers through self-closing and positive
self-latching doors or gates;
the knob or handle controlling the latch must be at least 40 inches above
grade;
° the gate or door must be locked, and access to pool prevented, when the pool
1$ по! supervised;
. swimming pool fences constructed after the effective date of Subpart 6-1
(March 30, 1988) must meet the requirements of the Uniform Code; and
. in the case of a swimming pool fence constructed prior to March 30, 1988,
no opening shall exceed four inches.
Temporary Pool Enclosures °
During the installation or construction of a swimming pool, the swimming pool must be
enclosed by a temporary enclosure. The temporary enclosure may consist of a temporary fence, a
permanent fence, the wall of a permanent structure, any other structure, or any combination of the
foregoing. However:
° all portions of the temporary enclosure must be at least four (4) feet high, and.
° all components of the temporary enclosure must be sufficient to prevent access to the
swimming pool by any person not engaged in the installation or construction process and to
provide for the safety of all such persons.
The temporary enclosure must remain in place throughout the period of installation or
construction of the swimming pool, and thereafter until the installation or construction of a
permanent enclosure has been completed.
The temporary enclosure must be replaced by a permanent enclosure. The permanent
enclosure must comply with all applicable “Barrier Requirements” described at pages 2 to 7 of this
publication, and with any additional requirements that may be imposed by any other New York State
codes or regulations applicable to swimming pool enclosures or by any local law applicable to
swimming pool enclosures and in effect in the location where the swimming pool has been installed
or constructed.
The permanent enclosure must be completed within ninety days after the date of issuance of
the building permit for the installation or construction of the swimming pool, or the date of
commencement of the installation or construction of the swimming pool, whichever is later, (If the
swimming pool is installed or constructed without the issuance of a building permit, the permanent
enclosure must be completed within ninety days after the date of commencement of the installation
or construction of the swimming pool - note, however, that this provision does not permit the
installation or construction of a pool without a building permit where such a permit is required by
applicable law.) The local code enforcement official has authority to extend the 90 day period for
completion of the permanent enclosure for good cause, such as a delay in construction caused by bad
weather.
Pool Alarm Requirements ’
Every swimming pool that is installed, constructed or substantially modified after December 14,
2006 must be equipped with an approved pool alarm which:

What is Stormwater?
‘Stormwater is rain that falls on roofs, lawns or
paved areas, like driveways and roads, and is car-
ried away by a system of stormwater pipes or cul-
‘verts and ditches. As it flows over the land sur-
face, stormwater picks up or is contaminated by
debris, chemicals, dirt and other pollutants. This
untreated water is discharged into the waterbod-
ies we use for swimming, fishing and drinking
water.
Why should I care?
Contaminated or polluted stormwater can lead to
significant water quality problems.
e Sediment clouds the water—mabking it difficult
for aquatic plants to grow and destroying
aquatic habitats.
e Excess nutrients cause algae blooms. Oxygen
levels are depleted when the algae die and de-
compose. Fish and other aquatic organisms
can’t live when oxygen levels decrease.
e Bacteria and other pathogens (commonly
found in fecal waste) discharged in swimming
areas create health hazards and cause beach

» Debris washed into the water can choke, suffo-
cate or disable aquatic life (ducks, fish, turtles
and birds).
Household hazardous wastes (insecticides, pes-
ticides, paint, and auto fluids) can poison
aquatic life.
Polluted stormwater often affects drinking wa-
ter sources—human health is at risk and water
treatment costs rise.

ity companies supplying your house with

ied deeply and are easier to hit than you'd
expect. Fortunately, there Is a not-for-profit
organization In New York State whose sole
purpose is the protection of these buried
utilities.

ties under your dig site, they will notity you

fore be responsible your facilities.
