AttentionSTORAGE Oxidizers are incompatible with many chemicals, such as organic solvents, algaecides, other oxidizers and pH adjusting materials. Oxidizers should be stored in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area and not contaminated by other materials, such as acids, bases, or easily oxidizable materials. Calcium hypochlorite products should be stored in sealed original containers in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area. These products must not be stored at temperatures above 125 degrees F. Containers should be stored away from combustible or flammable products and product packaging should be kept clean and free of all contamination, including other pool treatment products, acids, organic materials, nitrogen containing compounds, dry powder fire extinguishers, oxidizers, all corrosive liquids, etc. ** Refer to products MSDSs for storage, handling and use. Open flames and high-temperature devices shall not be used in a manner which creates a Hazardous condition and shall be listed for use with the hazardous materials stored or used. ATTENTION **Pool chemicals are stored in chemical room. Unknown whether this area is a temperature controlled environment. A/E/OWNER: Ensure that equipment does not create high temperatures and shall not create a hazardous condition. Chemical exposure to heat may cause adverse reactions with some of the chemicals listed.
AttentionINCOMPATIBLE MATERIALS *** Cal hypo reacts with chloritanted isocyanturates Wet mixstures of chorinated isocyanuartes and calcium hypochlorite react vigorously, releasing chlorine gas. Incompatible materials in storage and storage of materials that are incompatible with materials in use shall be separated when the stored materials are in containers having a capacity of more than 5 pounds or 0.5 gallon. Separation shall be accomplished by: 1. Segregating incompatible materials in storage by a distance of not less than 20 feet. 2. Isolating incompatible materials in storage by a noncombustible partition extending not less than 18 inches above and to the sides of the stored material. 3. Storing liquid and solid materials in hazardous material storage cabinets. 4. Storing compressed gases in gas cabinets or exhausted enclosures in accordance with IFC 2003 Sections 2703.8.5 and 2703.8.6. Materials that are incompatible shall not be stored within the same cabinet or exhausted enclosure. ALL POOL CHEMICALS ARE STORED IN ONE LOCATION.

Secondary containment shall be designed to contain a spill from the largest vessel plus the design flow volume of fire-protection water calculated to discharge from the fire-extinguishing system over the minimum required system design area or area of the room or area in which the storage is located, whichever is smaller, for a period of 20 minutes. A monitoring method shall be provided to detect hazardous materials in the secondary containment system. The monitoring method is allowed to be visual inspection of the primary or secondary containment, or other approved means. Where secondary containment is subject to the intrusion of water, a monitoring method for detecting water shall be provided. When monitoring devices are provided, they shall be connected to distinct visual or audible alarms.
FYIINDOOR SECONDARY CONTAINMENT REQUIREMENTS - PART 2 OF 2 Drainage systems shall be in accordance with the Plumbing Code and the following: 1. The slope of floors shall not be less than 1 percent, 2. Drains shall be sized to carry the volume of the fire-protection water as determined by the design density discharged from the automatic fire-extinguishing system over the minimum required system design area or area of the room or area in which the storage is located, whichever is smaller, 3. Materials of construction for drainage systems shall be compatible with the materials stored, 5. Incompatible materials shall be separated from each other in the drainage system, and 6. Drains shall terminate in an approved location away from buildings, valves, means of egress, fire access roadways, adjoining property and storm drains.
