Ohio Pool Safety Rules have serious problems

According to Ohio Administrative Code 3701-31-04, a license holder of a public swimming pool can keep the pool open to the public if the pH is 2.0 and the total chlorine is at 50ppm. That's the truth. That's like swimming in an acid bath. The health inspector in this state does not have the power to close a public pool. He can give a violation for chlorine less than 1ppm in a pool, but there is no maximum level for chlorine in the rules. The only critical issues where a license holder must close the pool is when the chlorine is less than 1 ppm. You can have the pH be very low (acidic) and the chlorine at toxic levels, and the rules don't address this issue.
