Last summer, a Trichlor production facility burned to the ground. Supplies of Trichlor are projected to run out soon. This will cause safety issues and other challenges this pool season. You must maintain minimum disinfection levels at all times.
If you are considering on changing your disinfection system, you must obtain approval by Public Health prior to any changes, email DLCntyHealthWaterRec@clark.wa.gov for more information.
Facilities can schedule an educational inspection, this is to ensure the facility is ready for the 2021 swim season while providing education to onsite staff. Click the button below to request an inspection.
