Answers to your ADA questions.

Q: Does my pool need a pool lift?
A: Any commercial pool with 300 linear feet or more needs two means of access. Any commercial pool with less than 300 linear feet needs one access point.

Q: What is a commercial pool?
A: Any pool that is open to the public at any time, receives government funding, or receives revenue from the pool such as membership dues.

Q: What is a point of access?
A: A point of access MUST be either a pool lift or sloped entry.

Q: Does my spa, wave action pool, leisure river, wading pool or sand bottom pool need a pool lift?
A: They all need one access point. A wading pool must have a sloped entry. A spa must have a pool lift, transfer wall or transfer system.

Q: How do I know if my pool lift is ADA compliant?
A: Here are some basics to check on your lift.

  • 1. Lift must have a capacity of 300 lbs or more.
  • 2. Lift must have a solid seat and a footrest. Sling seat styles are not compliant and should be replaced.
  • 3. Lift must be self operable from the deck and the water. A lift with manual rotate or hand crank is not compliant and should be replaced.
