Pool and Spa Inspections

About Pool/Spa Inspections

Swimming pools pose a unique mix of both potential health and safety dangers.  Cobb County's Development and Inspections Division permits and inspects all new construction and remodel Commercial Pools and all Residential Pools to ensure all pools and spas are built to code and constructed in a safe manner.

Cobb & Douglas Public Health annually inspects public swimming pools (such as HOA or hotel swimming pools/spas) to ensure chemical levels are sufficient to protect bathers from most harmful organisms as well as ensure adequate safety equipment is present. Visit for detailed information on annual public swimming pool procedures and requirements.

Residential Pools

All In-ground and above-ground pools in unincorporated Cobb County are required to be permitted and inspected by Cobb County Community Development.
