New Pool Legislation Effective December 19th, 2008
The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act
The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act promotes the safe use of pools, spas and hot tubs by imposing mandatory federal requirements for suction entrapment avoidance. The Act states that by midnight, December 19, 2008:
- Safety Drain Covers. All drain covers manufactured, sold, or installed must be certified ASME A112.19.8 – 2007. This applies to public and residential drains.
- Public Pool Drain Covers. All public pool and spa drain covers must be replaced with new covers that are certified to the ASME A112.19.8 – 2007 standard.
- Public Pool Drain Systems. All public pool and spas with a single main drain system, other than an unblockable drain, shall be equipped with one or more additional devices or systems designed to prevent suction entrapment that meet the requirements of any applicable ASME/ANSI Standard or applicable consumer product safety rule. In addition to a compliant drain cover, such additional devices or systems include a safety vacuum release system (SVRS), or suction limiting vent system, or gravity drainage system, or automatic pump shutoff system, or drain disablement, or other system determined by the CPSC to be equally effective in preventing suction entrapment.
