(openPR) – New law requires all public pools to have an anti-vortex drain cover to prevent tragedies
Dallas, Texas – In the wake of the tragic death of 7-year old, Graeme Baker, the Virginia Graeme Pool & Spa Safety Act, directed at all public pool facilities, will go into effect on December 19, 2008. The new law requires all public pools to have an Anti-Vortex drain cover to prevent a tragedy, such as Graeme Baker’s, from happening ever again. American Leak Detection is honored to offer their superior service in the installation of Anti-Vortex drain covers and Anti-Entrapment Drains.
Graeme Baker, grand daughter of former US Secretary of James A Baker lll, died as a result of a powerful spa drain sucking her down and entrapping her underwater. Her preventable death led to federal legislation passed in 2007 that requires all public pools to install and maintain Anti-Vortex drain covers and Anti-Entrapment drains by the end of 2008.
With the majority of public pools in the Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas area planning to make the switch over to the Anti-Vortex, Anti-Entrapment drain in the Spring of 2009, American Leak Detection is at the forefront of this mandated and necessary change, educating themselves on proper installation and maintenance needed to ensure the correct use and functioning of the Anti-Vortex, Anti-Entrapment drains.
