New Jersey Specific Regulation Changes
The regulation around testing your swimming pools and public recreational bathing sources has changed!
As of January 16, 2018 the New Jersey Department of Health has updated their State Sanitary Code, Chapter IX, Public Recreational Bathing (N.J.A.C 8:26). These changes include:
- The time between sample collection and analysis at the lab has gone from 30 hours to 8 hours for the analysis of pools, spas and aquatic facilities.
- Prior to opening for the season, pools, spas or any aquatic recreational facility must have a water sample collected
- All notifications of bacterial exceedances to clients and the health department must be completed within one hour of determining the result.
- Resamples must be collected and analyzed within 24 hours upon notification of an unsatisfactory result.
