The Consumer Health Division inspects all public pools and spas within the city limits of Fort Worth. Owner/operators must meet local and state minimum health requirements such as the proper maintenance of: water disinfection, filtration & circulation systems, safety features, signage, etc. Due to seasonal operational practices, pool and spa health inspections are primarily conducted during the spring and summer months. Indoor pools/spas are inspected year round.
The City of Fort Worth follows the Texas Department of State of Health Services (TDSHS) model by not requiring that such inspections be numerically or letter graded. Although pool and spa health inspections are not graded, they nonetheless may reflect deficiencies that could pose harm to the public’s health and safety. If violations or deficiencies are present, the owner/operator of the facility is required to remedy the conditions of deficiency immediately or within a reasonable period of time.
