Residential apartment buildings are by law required to meet certain standards and codes specified by state and federal laws. Their structure, emergency precautions, and a number of other aspects of the building must be in perfect order when the inspector passes by. Another aspect of the building that must be in impeccable conditions and up to all of the recent code changes are the pools. There are only a selected number of tiles, and pavement that commercial pools may use. Their depth and shallowness are also regulated and controlled.
Every year hundreds of changes and new codes are put in place for commercial buildings to abide by. An infraction of one of these laws could cost the management from hundreds to millions in fines. The lives of hundreds of residents are at risk, and the management company would be liable for any damages. The pool construction company with which the building is working with should be reliable enough to be trusted with informing the complex when their pool is in violation of a code or law.
