Anyone in New Jersey who is planning to buy an easily constructed or inflatable pool for their Fourth of July barbecue should know it is more than likely that at least one permit is required.
There are also security regulations that could apply. One state lawmaker is now urging box stores that sell these types of pools to inform customers about the permit requirements.
Assembly GOP Leader Jon Bramnick (R-Westfield) said he did not want to see people get fined or have their pool taken down simply because they did not know about the regulations.
“I’m only asking stores to tell customers about the permits because we have enough laws in this state and I don’t want to impose further burdens on retailers, but I do want to get the message out,” Bramnick said.
“If a kiddie pool needs a permit that would be like giving a violation to a lemonade stand. If that occurs I will actually physically sit in a kiddie pool and they’re going to have to take me away as well.”
The situation came to Bramnick’s attention through calls from constituents who also told him about the possibility of fines.
