Funny you say that Wes I had a dealer call this morning and mentioned an insurance company in there area made a couple hotels in the area change there drain covers and install svrs.
is it possible for an insurer to shut down a pool for not following the VGB?
Comment by Wes Burdine on December 17, 2008 at 9:50am
My personal opinion is the ones who will actually be "backdoor enforcing" the federal law are the insurers. Once they find out a pool is not in compliance with Federal law, they can pull the liability policy. This in itself will move more owner/operators to comply than the possibility of the CPSC closing them down. On their own admission, the CPSC has a very limited staff. Even if some states refuse to write it into their codes, therefore pulling the local level enforcement out of the picture, the insurers will still have the authority to pull the policy. Reminds of the commercials for seat belt use back in the 80's, "It's no longer just a good idea; it's the law."

I build and service pools in both Idaho and Utah. You could not have two states with such different attitudes toward VGB. Utah is regulating it very closely and Idaho sent out a letter to commercial and public pools and that was the end of it.
Ultimately how is the CPSC going to deal with the various attitudes of different states?

Hi. Could someone please talk more about sumps? I watched the videos but am not too clear on that part. Mainly, aside from the information that comes from the cover manufacturer, is there any other way to tell if the sump is ok? I'm specifically referring to plastic sumps, not really the ones built on site.

the video series was very good. Thank you for putting it together. I do have a few questions and was hoping they might be able to be answered.
1. i have a municipal indoor swimming pool which currently has 2 18x18 main drains attached to a surge tank. they are pentair main drains made up of 4 9x9s. the flow meter says the system is moving 1400gpm. Is there any product coming through the marketplace that anyone is aware of that will be able to handle this through one main drain?
2. A lot of the wading pools we encounter have the skimmer equalizers plumbed into the floor of the wading pool and utilize a floor return fitting to cover that equalizer line. currently the state of ohio does not allow me to disable that equalizer line. are there any suggestions other than breaking up the floor to put a compliant grate in there?
thanks again for all your help and work. this is a very important act and to see everyone in the industry come together to help all of us understand is a great thing and only speaks of our committment to safety and our customers.
