What's happened with the new ADA pool regulations that were supposed to go into effect this summer? We came across one RV park this summer that elected to close their pool rather than install the expensive accessability equipment required. Other parks seems to be going along either blissfully ignorant of the regulation or just planning on ignoring it. Is there a new deadline or has the ADA backed down? Just curious.

The guy with ramp must have a very weird pool. Is the disabled person supposed to wheel his chair down the ramp into the pool/hot tub? Do you have a link to that article? I'd be very interested to read it.

Actually, that is exactly what they are talking about.

Regulations are here (see section 1009.3) ADA standards

Interesting advisory in the regs: 1009.3 Sloped Entries. Sloped entries shall comply with 1009.3.

Advisory 1009.3 Sloped Entries. Personal wheelchairs and mobility devices may not be appropriate for submerging in water. Some may have batteries, motors, and electrical systems that when submerged in water may cause damage to the personal mobility device or wheelchair or may contaminate the pool water. Providing an aquatic wheelchair made of non-corrosive materials and designed for access into the water will protect the water from contamination and avoid damage to personal wheelchairs or other mobility aids.
