Since January 31, 2013, all public swimming pools in the U.S. must be equipped with assisted entry systems. As part of the 2010 Standards for Accessible Design, regulations of the Accessible Design for Recreational Facilities will require all public pools and spas to be outfitted with an ADA compliant swimming pool lift or sloped entry.
Such pool lifts will be required for public pools (open to the public at any time or receiving funding or revenue from the government or membership dues) greater than 300 linear feet. Pools greater than 300 feet will need two means of assisted entrance, while those less than 300 linear feet will only require one assisted entry system – either a swimming pool lift or sloped entry.
All ADA complaint swimming pool and spa lifts must follow a stringent set of guidelines in accordance with the 2010 Standards for Accessible Design. To view the complete list, visit ADA Standards for Accessible Design 2010.
