Tallahasssee Commercial Pool Cleaning
Stay Compliant with the Florida Department of Health
Commercial Pool Guidelines
Strict guidelines are set in place on Commercial Pool properties by the Florida Department of Health to ensure patron safety, water quality, and preventative maintenance is performed with regard for the city structures and ecosystem as well.
Each property has to have a Certified Pool Operator, with a valid and up to date license even if you are the pool owner, technically you can't legally clean or maintain a commercial pool without it.
Fines for a violation are typically $250 to $500, for first violation or $50 for every month or partial month during which the violation took place.
Our licensed team completes a full cleaning, vacuum, water balance, equipment preventative maintenance and upkeep, pool inspection to ensure compliance is upheld, digital and physical log book record keeping, and 24/7 on call availability for emergencies.
Technically, you must have a Certified Pool Operator test your pool water daily and record this data in your log book according to Florida State Law. Some commercial property owners believe that their maintenance persons can simply clean the pool without this license.
Historically, claiming ignorance as an excuse to break the law doesn't fair well for business owners and investors with stake in the property.
Many commercial pools are caught in violation of this and can result in large fines and even closure of pool facilities in some cases.
There are 47 criteria in which a commercial pool must meet to ensure that it is compliant and ready to operate safely.
Pools are regularly inspected by the Florida Department of Health and the results become public knowledge at Floridahealth.gov
