Looking Out For Faulty Drains
Aside from negligence, lack of pool supervision, reckless behavior and the like, many swimming pool accidents are caused by defective and faulty equipment. There is a law designed to avoid the tragic and hidden defects of drain entrapment in pools and spas. This law punishes or holds the manufacturers liable for swimming pool-related accidents.
This act needs the installation of anti-entrapment and drain covers and other safety devices. This is particularly addressed to all public pools and spas, in which they must have a second anti-entrapment system placed, especially when there is only one single main drain.
