ADA LAWS EFFECTIVE MAY 15, 2012

What does this mean for you?

The ADA has adopted the 2010 Standards for Accessible Design. This is a law requiring specific accessibility requirements for pools and spas. The following is taken from the Adoption of the 2010 Standards for Accessible Design fact sheet located on the ADA website.

8. Swimming Pools, Wading Pools, and Spas (Sections 242, 1009)

Accessible means of entry/exit are required for swimming pools. Such accessible means of entry include a pool lift or sloped entry, and either a transfer wall, transfer system, or pool stairs. Wading pools must provide a sloped entry, and spas must provide a pool lift, transfer wall, or transfer system. Wave action pools, leisure rivers, and sand bottom pools where user access is limited to one area shall not be required to provide more than one accessible means of entry, either a pool lift, sloped entry, or a transfer system.
