Oro Valley to offer free pool, spa inspections

The Town of Oro Valley will offer residents free pool and spa inspections beginning May 1 to make summer swimming season safer.

The town will offer the inspections throughout the summer, ending on Labor Day. Residents can schedule appointments with the Inspection & Compliance Division by calling 229-4815.

Inspectors will look at features designed to keep children from pools and spas to ensure they meet the town's Pool & Spa code. If not, residents will be offered suggestions on how to bring the features to code, the town said.

"Drowning is one of the leading causes of death in children under age five in Arizona,” said Chuck King, building official for the Town of Oro Valley, in a press release. “As such, the Town’s inspection staff is particularly diligent when it comes to pool and spa safety. We hope our residents will take advantage of this program.”
