Anti-Entrapment Devices for Suction Drains, Outlets, and Covers

Implementing the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act


The Federally-mandated requirements for preventing entrapment in pools and spas extends to both public and private installations. The requirements for publicly-operated facilities are effective December 19, 2008. There are three major areas that are covered:

  1. The vacuum release problem Public pools will need a device to immediately release suction on the pool or spa drains in case of an entrapment.
  2. The elimination of potentially entrapping conditions and equipment. All suction drains and grates must be of an ASME-approved type so that no person can get stuck on them when the pump is running.
  3. Limiting access to the water for unsupervised children. This involves the use of fences, door/gate latches and alarms to prevent a child from accessing a pool or spa without supervision.
Manufacturers of pool and spa equipment have been working to develop the products necessary to meet compliance with this Act. We are placing those approved products on this page for easy access. If you are uncertain what you need or cannot find it, please email Pool Plaza or call at 800-394-6131.
