Some of our thoughts on this: the vast majority of incidents regarding problems with entrapment have been with covers that have been missing, broken or defective, or improperly installed, or incorrectly sized.  VERY few incidents have been assoicated with properly sized, installed and manintained unblockable drain covers.   








Hi - Welcome to Our Website

If you're here, you probably have questions or concerns about making your pool compliant with the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act.  We have answers.

What It Is All About

Pool and spa drains can be an entrapment hazard for swimmers.  New laws have been passed (nationally, the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act, in Minnesota the Abigail Taylor Pool Safety Act) to eliminate this hazard.  There are several ways pools and spas can comply with this law.  The Unblockable Drain Cover™ is one of the easiest ways to comply with the law.  Also required is daily inspection of pool drains.


Who We Are

This company was developed as a division of Szymanski's S. I., Inc., for the purpose of providing an easy, legal, safe and viable solution to meet the requirements of the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act (in Minnesota the Abigail Taylor Pool Safety Act).  This law, passed in December, 2007, requires all public pools to have drains that are designed or modified so as to prevent swimmer entrapment.

Our parent company  and employees have over 35 years experience in pools and water treatment.  We have dealt with ALL aspects of pools, pool water, pool construction, ALL areas of concern to pool owners, with an emphasis on commercial/public pools.  This division is specializing in the new laws and unblockable pool covers.  We can assist you in determining WHAT specifically you need to become compliant in the most economical way for your pool. 

We have available, in several sizes, our stainless steel Unblockable Drain Cover™ and plastic unblockable drain covers that can be easily installed over existing drain covers.  These products meet ANSI/ASME standards. 



We will simply and unconditionally guarantee that our Unblockable Drain Cover™ is a legal and safe option to the Virginia Graeme Act and the Abigail Taylor Act.    It is our recommendation that you choose this option to comply with the law.  It is simple and easy.  All other "fixes" mean you will spend many thousands of dollars retrofitting your pool drains.


Our Mission

To assist pool/spa owners/managers in complying with current laws WITHOUT tearing up their pool floors and without extensive or expensive retrofitting.   If you have any questions or concerns about the best way to comply with the new laws, or are unsure if this will work with your pool, feel free to call us anytime.
