2013 Pool Lifts & ADA Compliance


Pool Lifts & ADA Compliance

Effective January 31st, 2013 all Public Accommodations (including hotels, resorts, etc.) must bring certain elements of their facilities into compliance with 2010 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. This is an extension of the previous deadline set for May 21st, 2012.
If your public accommodation or facility includes a swimming pool, a wading pool, or a spa you will need a fixed pool lift (unfortunately a portable lift will no longer meet ADA Standards) to ensure you meet the requirements. Basic items of any compliant pool lift include:
•Lifting capacity of at least 300 lb.
•A footrest must accompany the seat into the water (exception: for spas)
•A rigid seat is advised but not required
•Controls that a patron can operate from both the pool deck and from within the pool without assistance.
Please Note: A manually cranked or manually rotated lift is NOT ADA compliant.
