Building commercial swimming pools since 1980!

Code Upgrades

The Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Act of 2008 requires that all pools and spas meet new safety criteria before they can be operated.  The timing for compliance depends on the original construction date of the existing project.  In all cases, these code upgrades must be completed by June of 2013 for swimming pools and June of 2012 for spas.

Much of the new code addresses direct suction lines and collector tanks.  Other parts of the code address deck and gutter slopes, depth measurements,signage, fencing, and step, ladder and hand rail configuration.

In 2011 the Americans with Disabilities Act will change the way some commercial pools and spas are accessed by persons with disabilities.

Most of this work can only be completed by a State Licensed Commercial Swimming Pool Contractor.

Please give us a call to schedule a survey of your swimming pool or spa.
