ADA standards deadline now pushed back to January

The deadline for the Americans with Disabilities Act guideline enforcement for lifts to be installed into public pools has now been pushed back until January 31.

Hotel managers and other public pool operators have been given more time in order to install the pool lifts because manufacturers of these lifts have a backlog on the number created because they have never had to make this many before.

The original deadline for the installation of these lifts was supposed to be March 15, but this was then pushed back until this past Monday and has now been pushed back even further.

The reason that the wheelchair lifts must be installed is because standards of the Americans With Disabilities Act states that “the provision of accessible entry and exit to existing swimming pools, wading pools and spas.”
