Standards for Swimming Pools

I am quite curious as to who makes standards for swimming pools on size, use, safety, etc. Recently a 5 year old child in my sister in law's society in greater noida almost drowned as the pool access wasnt blocked and the child fell in pool when there was no life guard.

If there are standards, please share with us. more

If parents instead of social networking on mobiles give their 1 hour to children when they are in the pool and keep them in their observation, there isn't any possibility of any untoward mishap. Why leave care of your precious children in somebody's else's hands/responsibility? more  
Thank God there nothing untoward had happened. Good you brought out this incident . We all should remember one most important rule ,

* Don't leave young children unattended at home, car ,play and you go gallivanting . If you do that I will call you an irresponsible Parent . You are an escapist , trying to blame some one else .
* Yes parents with children also have fun and shop & gallivant after making sure that the children are handed over to responsible attendants. It will cost you money , but gauge which is valuable .
* Let us consider our children as procreation and heirs .

So pathetic situation. Usually, there should be an instructor and the swimming pool for children and learners should be with slops and barriors. Municipalities should inspect and allow such swimming pools. more  
The following Indian Standards/Special Publication have been formulated by BIS on swimming pools:

IS 16508 : 2017 Swimming Pool for Public - Code of Safety
IS 3328 : 1993 Quality tolerances for water for swimming pools (First Revision)
IS 6494 : 1988 Code of practice for water-proofing of underground water reservoirs and swimming pools (First Revision)
National Building Code of India 2016: Part 9/Sec 1 'Plumping Services, Water Supply'

Please note that you can search about availability of various Indian Standards formulated by BIS on a particular subject by using the link given below: more

Width: Most European pools are between 10 m and 50 m wide. Depth: The depth of a swimming pool depends on the purpose of the pool, and whether it is open to the public or strictly for private use. If it is a private casual, relaxing pool, it may go from 1.0 to 2.0 m (3.3 to 6.6 ft) deep.
