Pool Safety, Continued…

And this time, it’s about something bigger than a microscopic protozoan.

In December of 2007, President Bush signed the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act. The act requires that public pools and spas(which will include community association pools and spas) must have some type of anti-entrapment device on the drain designed to eliminate the risk of death or injury.

Apparently, drownings associated with pool and spa drains are disurbingly common, and rather easily preventable. A number of devices can be installed to provide safety and compliance with the act.

Compliance with the act is not mandated until December, but why wait? If you haven’t had this done, get it done immediately.
