ADA Swimming Pool Lifts and Access

Portable Pool LiftStarting on March 15th 2012, the US Department of Justice has mandated that most public swimming pools are required to have handicap access into their swimming pools. Our in-house ADA technicians have created this easy to use selection tool to assist you in finding the correct means of handicap access into your pool.

Not all lifts, ramps, and stairs on the market will meet these new requirements, so please wary of buying from just anyone. We can help you find one that will comply and will make your facility compliant with these new regulations.

FAQ's on the New ADA Regulations

Does my pool need a lift?

If your pool services the general public at a hotel, YMCA, government facility, school or other commercial installation, you will need to comply with these new regulations or face fines or closures.  

When would I need two means of ADA access?

If your pool has more than 300 linear feet of swimming pool wall, two means of access must be provided with at least one being ADA compliant.


Are Discounts Available?

If you are planning on order multiple ADA access units, please contact us directly at 800-446-6416 for significant discounts on our products.


Does the Federal Government provide ADA assistance?

Your purchase of a pool lift from Aquatic Technology may qualify you for a special tax incentive on your tax return. These tax incentives are available to individuals and businesses, which incur expenses to accommodate the needs of someone who is disabled.


Do you offer financing for my new lift?

Aquatic Technology is able to assist you with financing your pool lift with low monthly payments.

Among the updates for a number of facility types were new requirements specifically for public swimming pools. The level of accessibility depends on the size and type of the pool. For pools under 300 linear feet in size, the ADA Standard for Accessible Design calls for one means of access, which must be either an ADA-compliant lift, or a sloped entry. Pools with greater than 300 linear feet of pool wall must also have a second means of access. This second means can either be another lift or ramp, or it can also be a transfer wall, a transfer system or pool stairs.
