Public Pool and Public Spa Operators Guide

picture of the cover of the Public Pool & Public Spa Operators Guide

The Public Pool and Public Spa Operators Guide (PDF 10.9MB) was developed by the Middlesex-London Health Unit to help operators carry out their duties and protect bathers from recreational water illnesses and life-threatening injuries. However, it is important that operators know and follow the Ontario Public Pools Regulation (R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 565)1 and the Ontario Public Spas Regulation (O. Reg. 428/05)2 because the guide does not include all sections of the Regulations.
