Public Swimming Pools

 

 

The Public swimming pools in Arkansas must be in compliance with the Virginia Graeme Baker Federal Pool and Spa Safety Act.

Signed by the U.S. President Bush on December 2007, the VGB Pool and Spa Safety Act (P&SSAct) is in force since the December 19, 2008. This code is designed to prevent swimming pools hazards. The risks of pools like body entrapments or eviscerations are more often lying in wait and deadly.

 

The VGB Act determined U.S. CPSC criteria for pool and spa insurance. Under the act, every drain covers must match ASME/ANSI A112.19.8-2007 in all public swimming pools and Spas. The water installations which have a single main drain different than an unblockable drain must set up a second equipment to contend for entrapments.

 

The manufacture, the trade or retail of drain covers which are not in compliancy with the security criteria required by the CPSC is prohibited in USA to ensure that all drain covers available in the market are conformable with safety specs.

 

Each public pools must establish anti-entrapment drain covers and implement other layers of security such as SVRS or fences.
