Unblockable drain deadline extended

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recently extended the deadline for compliance with the Virginia Graeme Baker Act’s interpretation of an “unblockable drain” from May 28, 2012, to May 23, 2013.

CPSC Commissioner Nancy Nord said the agency’s September 2011 revocation of the original interpretation of that term caused problems for pool operators who relied on the initial guidelines, which stated that affixing an unblockable drain cover over a single main drain rendered that drain unblockable and therefore in compliance with VGB.
