NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

A significant change in the requirements for swimming pool and spas occurred with the adoption of the 2012 Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code (VUSBC).  As mandated by Section R-325 of the VUSBC the International Swimming Pool and Spa Code is now the referenced document for all swimming pool and spas. 

The International Swimming Pool and Spa Code brought a significant change to the barrier requirements.  Section 305.2.9 of that code requires that there shall be a clear zone of not less than 36 inches around the exterior of the barrier and around any permanent structures or equipment such as pumps, filters and heaters that can be used to climb the barrier.
