In a continued effort to help the hospitality industry ensure appropriate maintenance of ADA pool lifts, S.R.Smith is providing pool lift maintenance and cleaning resources. These tools are designed to educate pool operation managers on the steps necessary to keep their pool lifts in working order. Maintenance of accessible features, including pool lifts, is a requirement of the ADA, which states: “A public accommodation shall maintain in operable working condition those features of facilities and equipment that are required to be readily accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities."
Routine maintenance is especially important for indoor pool environments where chemicals and humidity can cause corrosion on exposed metal parts. The pool lift maintenance resources, which include video and documentation, can be accessed at www.poollifts.com.
