Making changes around the pool?
Although sliding doors and French doors are stylish, they will not meet minimum code requirements.
When remodeling a recreation building that shares a wall with the pool, doors and windows must meet minimum code requirements. Windows cannot open more than four inches and doors must self-close and self-latch. If your doors do not have a card reader or code, latches must be at least 60 inches high.
Plan review may be required prior to construction, alteration, or modification of a pool, spa, or other water recreational feature. Plans must be submitted by a licensed engineer or architect.
If you are unsure if your proposal will require plan review, contact the Snohomish Health District prior to making changes to your water recreation facility.
