These changes are examples of “Equipment Replacement”. Approval must be obtained by submitting an Equipment Replacement Form with the appropriate fee to the Ohio Department of Health. Along with new pool construction, other situations or alterations may require more extensive plan review. In this case, an Application For Plan Review must be submitted to ODH for approval. After review and approval, ODH will schedule field inspections of the construction or alteration.
Notification would also need to be sent to ODH if a “substantial alteration” is scheduled to be completed within the pool environment. Any of the following changes would qualify as a substantial alteration and require that plans be submitted to the Ohio Department of Health:
Please keep in mind that alterations not listed here may also require plan approval.
You can contact the Cuyahoga County Board of Health or the Ohio Department of Health Engineering Office at (614) 466-1390 if you have any questions about plan review or equipment change notification.
