Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
July 23, 2010,
Attorney General Eric Holder signed final regulations revising
regulations, including its ADA Standards for Accessible Design.
The official text was published in the Federal Register on September 15, 2010. The ADA requires that most pools and spas have at
least one primary form of access. For pools this may include a
lift or sloped entry; for spas, a lift, transfer wall or
transfer system may be used. Pools measuring more than 300
perimeter feet must have a second means of access, which can
include a lift, ramp, transfer wall, transfer system or stairs.
