CPSC Approves Unblockable Extension
The Consumer Product Safety Commission is extending by one year the deadline for retrofitting unblockable drains in public pools.
In 2010, the CPSC determined that an unblockable drain cover could be installed over a smaller sump to comply with the Virginia Graeme Baker Act. But last September, the group reversed itself, requiring that the sumps also meet certain dimensional and flow criteria.
