Rockland County Executive Ed Day Statement on Illegal Pool Rentals

NEW CITY, NY — "It has very recently come to our attention that a private company is offering to match owners of residential swimming pools with people who want to rent the pools, often by the hour.

This practice is illegal under our Sanitary Code. It is dangerous and exposes both the homeowner and the people using the swimming pool to unacceptable risks.

The Rockland County Department of Health will shut down and levy fines against any homeowner who engages in this practice.

We have become aware of an online business that advertises pools for rent, many of them in Rockland County.

We are reaching out to this company to inform them that they must cease this practice. We will take legal action if necessary."

Rockland County has developed an FAQ about pool rentals. It can be accessed here or at http://bit.ly/2uQpTGN.
