How can I make sure water activities are as safe and sanitary as possible?

(1) To ensure that the children are safe with a swimming pool on the premises, you must:
(a) Ensure that pools are inaccessible to children when not in use;
(b) Provide a certified lifeguard at all times in addition to required staff, when children use a swimming pool; and
(c) Follow any guidelines established by your local health jurisdiction or the state department of health.
(2) You must prohibit children from using or having access to a hot tub spa, small portable wading pools, whirlpool, or other similar equipment.
(3) If you have a water table you must empty and sanitize water tables or similar water play containers after each use and more often if necessary.
