Landlords, as well as all home owners, must comply with the Swimming Pool Safety Act of the California Health and Safety Code. The Safety Code defines a swimming pool as any swimming or recreational bathing over 18 inches deep, which includes hot tubs and spas. The act requires homeowners to install at least one of a selection of seven safety features on new or remodelled pools. These safety features include the building of an enclosure or fence around the pool.
