Pool Control Plan

Experts in Disinfection

Gimasur carries out pool control plans in Andalusia

With the entry into force of Royal Decree 742/2013 establishing the technical-health criteria for control of swimming pools in Spain, a number of new obligations are established so far. The main obligation is the obligation to carry out the Protocol Control Pools for swimming pools for collective use. The Protocol lays down the technical-health criteria for the water and air quality of swimming pools in order to protect the health of users from possible physical, chemical or microbiological risks arising from the use of them.

The owner of the swimming pool must have a Control Protocol Pools specific to his aquatic installation, which will always be in the pool itself available to the maintenance staff and the competent authority, and must keep it up to date.

The person responsible for compliance with this Royal Decree is the owner (natural or legal person, public or private or community of owners who owns the pool).

What kind of pools have to implement the Pool Control Protocol?

Royal Decree 742/2013 applies to any swimming pool for public use. If your pool is type 1 or type 2, you are required to perform the Control Pools Protocol:

• Type 1: Swimming pools where water-related activity is the main objective, such as for public pools, leisure pools, water parks or spas.

• Type 2: Swimming pools that act as a supplementary service to the main objective, such as in the case of hotel pools, tourist accommodation, camping or therapeutics in health centres, among others.

Sanctions in case of non-compliance.

Not having the Protocol of Control of Swimming Pools, can imply strong ECONOMIC SANCTIONS, TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF THE POOL and in the case of summer pools, that THE OPENING OF the aquatic installation IS NOT AUTHORIZED.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
