Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I have a building polygon: building=yes leisure=water_park

and a swimming pool that is located on top of the building: leisure=swimming_pool

What is the proper way to tag a rooftop pool so that it renders correctly? As it is now, the pool is not rendered on the map. I've tried layer=1 on the pool, with no success.

Adding layer=1 assuming the building is at 0 is quite OK and likely the best way to map the pool currently (I would have suggested adding an indoor level tag too).

However you should not necessarily expect the standard map style to actually render the pool on top of the building at the current time. There are numerous, sometimes conflicting, requirements wrt layering for the style and not all of them can be met within the resource constraints the project has.
