I do pools and spas as an ancillary inspection service. I completed InterNACHI pool spa certification course.
This article is from 2010. Statistics show that Québec holds the highest rate of residential pool drownings in the country. All too often, the victims of these drownings are young children. Each tragic death that could have been prevented challenges us individually and collectively, along with the Quebec government, to instill change.
The new regulations aim to reduce the risk of drowning incidents in children by controlling access to such pools. It should be emphasized that these new standards apply only to future facilities. Pools installed before new regulations came into effect and those acquired before July 22, 2010, but settled before October 31, 2010, are not covered by the new laws.
Safe inspecting everyone.
