Swimming is a great source for fun, relaxation and exercise for many people. At the same time, it can be very dangerous. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) — drowning accidents, including those at both public and private swimming pool facilities, claimed more than 3,500 lives in the United States in 2005.

All swimming pool owners — private homeowners, municipalities and businesses alike — are obligated to maintain their pools in a manner that makes them reasonably safe for guests or the public to use. When they do not and someone gets hurt, the owner or government entity can be held liable. Recently, new regulations were enacted that require all pool owners, even the owners of existing pools, to install drain covers that meet certain specific performance requirements.
