Natural and unfinished Stainless Steel or Aluminum used for the shell of a public swimming pool, spa or special use pool or with a clear coat finish are acceptable finishes. 2. Typically logos on pool floors are darker than the surrounding finish and are evaluated on a case-by-case basis with regard to bather safety and the ability to readily identify objects lying on the pool floor. Logos that have been accepted are those including lettering or figures not wider than a typical lane marker or those using tile with “white” grout to provide enough contrast to readily identify objects lying on the pool floor. Page 5 of 5 3. This is not a comprehensive list. Please contact the Ohio Department of Health if you have questions about the acceptance of a particular finish or wish to submit one for approval. To submit a finish for evaluation please provide the manufacturer’s name and complete address (with phone number or E-mail address), a sample of the finish and the product code number from the manufacturer or, with topical coatings, from the container label.
