Full text
7. In order to prevent children from climbing to gain access to the swimming pool, every device linked to its operation must be installed more than 1 m from the pool wall or, as the case may be, the enclosure.
The pipes linking the device to the swimming pool must be flexible and not be installed in a way that facilitates the climbing of the pool wall or, as the case may be, the enclosure.
Despite the first paragraph, a device may be less than 1 m from the swimming pool or enclosure if it is installed
(1)  inside an enclosure having the features described in sections 4 and 5;
(2)  under a structure that prevents access to the swimming pool from the device and that has the features described in subparagraphs 2 and 3 of the first paragraph of section 4; or
(3)  in a shed.
A structure or fixed equipment likely to be used for climbing over the wall or the enclosure must also be installed at more than 1 m from the pool wall or, as the case may be, the enclosure. That minimum distance applies to a window situated less than 3 m from the ground, except if its maximum opening does not allow the passage of a spherical object more than 10 cm in diameter.
