No, any private pool at your residence does not require a permit from the City of San Antonio. Metro Health only licenses and inspects public and semi-public pools. To obtain a permit for a public or semi-public pool, visit the Development and Business Services Center, 1901 S. Alamo.
If you think you have an issue with mold at your residence and would like it to be tested, you will have to hire a private contractor. Contractors who test for and remediate mold can be located in the yellow pages under MOLD. The City of San Antonio does NOT have authority to force private property owners to remediate mold (e.g. apartment complexes or other rental property).
If you feel that your water has a quality issue and you are on a municipal supply, please contact your purveyor/water service provider (e.g. SAWS, Bexar Met, etc.).
