The Lake County General Health District licenses and inspects over 100 pools and spas. All public pools are inspected twice a year and range from municipalities, hotels, campgrounds, and other recreational areas. Inspections focus on health and safety including disinfectant levels, pH, total alkalinity, calcium hardness, cyanuric acid, temperature, and total dissolved solids. Facilities are also inspected for compliance in regards to chemical storage, pump and filter rooms, weekly operation logs, and safety equipment.
