scope:

The provisions of this code shall apply to the construction, alteration, movement, renovation, replacement, repair and maintenance of aquatic recreation facilities, pools and spas. The pools and spas covered by this code are either permanent or temporary, and shall be only those that are designed and manufactured to be connected to a circulation system and that are intended for swimming, bathing or wading.

This section describes the types of constructionrelated activities to which the code is intended to apply. The applicability encompasses the initial design of swimming pools and spas, the installation and construction phases and the maintenance of operating systems. The code is intended to regulate any and all swimming pool- and spa-related appliances, systems and associated equipment that can affect the health, safety and welfare of users insofar as they are affected by the installation, operation and maintenance of such appliances and systems.

The key factors as to whether this code applies to a swimming pool or spa is the intended use of the pool or spa for swimming, bathing or wading and whether the pool or spa is designed and manufactured to be connected to a circulation system. The pools or spas can be of permanent construction or of portable construction.

For example, although a permanent decorative fountain not associated with a pool has a circulation system, the fountain is not intended for swimming, bathing or wading. Thus, the fountain is not covered by this code. Similarly, a portable plastic wading pool intended for wading, but not designed to be connected to a circulation system is also not covered by the code. See Commentary Figures 101.2(1) through 101.2(4).
