Swimming Pools and Spas
The Prince William Health District inspects and annually permits more than 170 commercial swimming pools and spas in Prince William County. These pools are located at apartment and condominium complexes, local County and city parks, hotels, motels, county clubs, and other private recreational clubs. The County and the City of Manassas have local swimming pool regulations which primarily address water quality, pool patron safety and pool operator training. Also, the state requires that the pool and spa water quality be tested and posted on a placard at the pool.
Commercial pool owners are required to pay an annual permit fee of $350. Commercial pools are required to have a professionally trained Certified Pool Operator on site when the pool is in operation. Pool Operators are required to pay an annual $15 fee.
Proposed commercial swimming pool and spa construction plans require review and approval by the local Health Department.
