Where:

D0 = Water depth at cove radius;

D1 = Water depth below board plummet line maintained for entire length of L1 allowing for slope to the drain;

D2 = Water depth at shallow end of pool;

Oh = Length of board overhang above pool;

L1 = Length from below board plummet line to start of transition slope;

L2 = Length of transition zone;

L3 = Length of shallow end of pool;

S1 = Shallow end slope ratio;

S2 = Transition slope ratio; and

B1 = Board length.

(3) A minimum distance of 10 feet between the plummets of adjacent diving boards; and

(4) A minimum distance between a diving board plummet and a side wall of:

(a) 10 feet for a diving board 20 inches or less above the water line; and

(b) 12 feet for a diving board greater than 20 inches above the water line;

E. Diving boards in excess of 10 feet above the water line and diving platforms are in compliance with §7.2.4 of the American National Standard for Public Swimming Pools; and

F. A starting block:

(1) Is located on the pool deck so that a swimmer dives into a minimum of 5 feet water depth; or

(2) At a pool constructed before February 10, 1997, is located so that a swimmer dives into a minimum of:

(a) 5 feet water depth when the starting block is used without supervision; or

(b) 4 feet water depth when the starting block is:

(i) Used in a controlled environment such as a swimming competition under the supervision of an instructor; and

(ii) Restricted from unsupervised use or is removed when not under supervised use.
