At Sweetwater Pools, we pride ourselves on offering swimming pool management and services that comply with government pool safety guidelines.
In December of 2007, Congress approved the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act (VGB), which instituted new and stronger safety guidelines to prevent entrapment. To read more about this bill, click here.
Sweetwater and the American Disabilities Act
In accordance with the ADA, the government passed new measures to ensure all pool patrons have access to the swimming pool. Most swimming pools will be required to install chair lifts and/or ramps at each pool.
Could we see a national health code for swimming pools? Talks are in the works to bring everyone under the same set of pool safety guidelines and regulations.
Water Safety and Preventing Waterborne Illnesses
We take pride and commitment in water safety and prevention of waterborne illnesses, which ensure to keep your pool safe and clean for years to come.
As fecal contamination is a common occurrence, make sure your children have swim diapers and rubber pants to avoid exposure.
Stay tuned to Sweetwater as we continue to investigate this issue and provide up-to-date information on new government compliance regulations.
