By March 15 ADA Law Now Requires All Hotel Pools and Hot Tubs to have wheelchair lifts
Posted by GP38/R42 Chris on Mon Mar 12 19:10:29 2012Starting March 15, all hotel pools will now require hotels to have permanent lifts to get ADA guests in the pool. They can't use portable units, that's not good enough, and they have to equip every water facility on the property, and that includes, hot tubs, or if they have multiple pools.
Once again, common sense can't prevail. What's wrong if they only have one of the pools ADA reachable? And permanent lifts in hot tubs? What's wrong with the portable ones?
Another law which completely disregards common sense.
Watch as hotels just fill in their hot tubs or pools and then no one gets to enjoy them.
