In Minnesota, pools and spas are required to comply with
the Abigail Taylor Pool Safety Act.
This act establishes standards for new and existing public pools requiring specific construction and inspections. The bill also expands the licensure requirements to currently unlicensed public pools to include all public pools.
You have 3 basic choices for your pools and spas under 4 ft. to bring them into compliance by January 1, 2009:
1. Dual drains with ASME/ANSI approved covers. You MUST be certain that you have PROPER dual drains, if you are using this option. (See "Dual Drain" page.)
2 . Gravity drain system with ASME/ANSI approved covers.
3 . An unblockable drain cover that complies with ASME/ANSI Standards. The Unblockable Drain Coverô is compliant.
