Is a classification code used by the Contractors State License Board (CSLB) in California, USA for contractor’s licenses. This license category refers to contractors who are qualified to build swimming pools.
To obtain a C53 license, contractors must meet specific educational and experience requirements and pass an exam. Once licensed, C53 contractors can build swimming pools for residential and commercial clients, including the design, excavation, installation of plumbing, electrical and filtration systems, and the finishing of the pool’s interior and surrounding area. C53 licensed contractors are also qualified to install and repair pool equipment such as pumps, filters, and heaters.
It’s important to note that the C53 license is specifically for building new swimming pools and does not cover maintenance or repair services. For these services, a contractor must hold a different license classification, such as the C-61/D35 license mentioned earlier
