Issuing a well-written notice if a pool fails inspection

Written notice is for owner's benefit

If a pool fails inspection, the written notice of non-compliance issued to the owner should:

  • be written with the owner in mind – use everyday language, without needless technical jargon or legalese
  • describe, in precise detail, what needs to be fixed ('fix boundary fence' is not enough detail).

A well-written notice helps the owner make the pool compliant and increases the likelihood that the certifier can issue a certificate of compliance at the follow-up inspection.
