ADA SUMMARY: The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability. On September 15, 2010, the ADA Guidelines finalized on July 23, 2004 (ADAAG 2004) were signed into law and now require compliance by all Title II (Public Entities) and Title III (Public Accommodations and Commercial Entities) by March 15, 2012. This includes recreation facilities, swimming pools, wading pools and spas.  Listed below are some resource links concerning compliance:

 

DRAIN COVERS:  
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced (May 26, 2011) a voluntary recall of certain pool and spa drain covers.  Here is a link to that announcement:
