Texas Tech University

Swimming Pools & Spas

The state of Texas has established minimum requirements for the design and operation of public swimming pools. These rules assure proper filtration, chemical, and general maintenance of water safety to users. These standards are based in part on the American National Standards Institute and the National Spa and Pool Institute standards and are applicable to pools and spas open to the general public.

This program consists of annual EHS inspections of all public and therapeutic pools and spas owned and operated by the university.
