Abstract

This specification provides safety and performance requirements for portable pools for residential use. This specification addresses pool hazards including childhood drowning, sanitation, electrical safety, and entrapment. Portable pool has two types: Type A which uses no pump and filter and Type B which uses pumps and filters. Pools shall be resistant to horizontal and vertical forces in order to avoid break or collapse when tested. All air valves shall be accessible for each inflatable section. Once a section of the pool is inflated, the air valve shall be capable of being inserted inside the inflated section without extending beyond the surface more than a certain length. Written instructions shall be provided with each pool. They shall include the pool model name or number, the name, address, and phone number of the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer and shall cover, at a minimum: pool safety, product description, parts and assembly (including where and how to affix safety signs, if applicable), filling (including information on the fill line), emptying, deflation (if applicable), cleaning, maintenance, and storage.
