Inspection data shows problems often found with pools

Michelle Keller and Kevin Spear of The Orlando Sentinel used county pool inspection data to show that "at least one in eight failed tests for chlorine, meaning they could pose a health risk for swimmers who use them." The findings roughly mirror an early federal study and the paper's previous surveys of inspection reports. "This year's Sentinel survey found chlorine violations at mobile-home parks in Lake County; hotels and motels along U.S. Highway 192 in Osceola County; apartment and condo complexes in Seminole County; beachside motels and resorts in Volusia; and at subdivisions, apartments and condos in Orange County."
