There are many safety regulations that must be in place when operating a pool - whether it is a public pool, a water park, an outdoor hot tub, an apartment complex pool or other swimming facility. These regulations are in place for good reason. Tragically, drowning accidents are one of the largest causes of youth deaths in the United States, often involving children of a very young age. Beyond this, personal injury sustained from drowning accidents often involves permanent disability due to brain damage sustained through lack of oxygen.

There are various duties that swimming pool owners and operators must uphold. These vary depending on the type of pool, though private pools and hot tubs are not immune to such regulations. For example apartment complexes must have appropriate childproof fencing and locks that prevent children from wandering into the pool. Electrical wiring must be appropriately installed given the inherent dangers of power near any body of water. Drains should not cause a hazard, nor allow fingers to become jammed or stuck. Public swimming facilities may have a duty of supervision by qualified personnel.
