We just had a in ground pool installed, the only issue (pool wise) on the final inspection was I need to have alarms on the two house doors that have direct access to the pool. The next day I went to the County Building permit office to get the specific specs on what is required. When I asked, they had no idea what I was talking about. They needed to speak to the inspector and would call me. Which they did, apparently it is part of the International Code Council which GA has adopted. This is to prevent small children and/or elderly adults from wandering out of your house and drowning them selves. Now, I'm all for safety but making this mandatory? I can understand it if you had children In the house but we don't. Having these alarms means you can't leave your door open, one of my doors exits to a screen porch. Also every time you walk out, you have hit the by pass, a PITA if your grilling or doing something similar. The only thing the County said was it had to make an audible noise, that's it. The ICC code has more detailed specs so at least they are being somewhat reasonable. At least I don't have to alarm the windows like some other places I read about. Sorry to rant but I guess I'm lucky they even allowed me to build a pool, maybe they should just ban pools, that would reduce all the pool drownings.
