Effective today the Department of Justice (DOJ) extended the deadline for existing pool and spa compliance with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) until January 31, 2013. This extension does not apply to newly constructed pools or spas, or those going under alterations. The extension for existing pools and spas was issued through DOJ rulemaking and was based on public comments received by affected parties.
The final rule can be viewed here.
