Drowning Prevention

Southern Nevada Pool Code

The Southern Nevada Pool Code PDF 474KB plays an important role in protecting small children from accidental drowning.

With provisions requiring pools to have layers of protection, such as fences, self-latching gates and door alarms, the pool code is a valuable tool to help keep children safe by preventing their ability to access bodies of water.

Many child drowning victims were last seen safe inside the home, but somehow managed to let themselves outside to the pool/spa area. The installation and proper use of barriers helps ensure that if a child manages to get outside unsupervised, he or she will be unable to access the pool or spa and avoid a terrible accident.

Review chapter 8 of the Southern Nevada Pool Code for specific information about barriers, accessibility and safety. Chapter 8 is only a portion of the code; all provisions of the code as a whole are necessary for swimming pool and spa integrity and safety.
