Secure pool, what you need to know

If you are the owner of a house with private swimming pool or if you consider to buy a villa with swimming pool, it is important to know the French regulations defining the safety rules.

The regulation on private swimming pools

Private family swimming pools need to respond to the Law No. 2003-9 from the 3rd of January 2003, related to the safety of swimming pools.

Since the 1st of January 2004, the installation of standardized safety equipment around private swimming pools for individual use is mandatory, as provided in the Decree n°2004-499 from the 7th of June 2004.

Four swimming pool safety measures

The law recommends four measures that must comply to the standards of the French Standardization Association (AFNOR).

The Alarm 

Peripheral or submerged, the alarm is the most discreet system. It prevents from danger when an infrared line is crossed or when something or someones falls into the water.

Security cover

It rolls out on the water and must withstand a weight up to 100 kg. There are different styles of tarpaulins or shutters combining safety, water protection and temperature maintenance.

The swimming pool gate

Minimum 1,10 m high, the gate completely encloses the access. The gate must have a closure system that is inaccessible to children.

The swimming pool enclosure

The pool enclosure is available in 3 systems : low, telescopic, high. The latter offers the possibility to swim in all weather conditions.


Documents to be provided

Swimming pools build before 2004 

You must have the safety equipment certified by a state-approved professional: the manufacturer, the salesman or a technical inspecto 

Swimming pools build after 2004

The manufacturer or the installer must provide a certificate of compliance with the legal installation requirements.


Whenever the law is not respected, the owner is liable to a fine of up to € 45,000.

In addition to the legal obligations, the first rule of common sense is to never let a child approach a swimming pool without adult supervision.
