ADA Compliant Pool Lifts

Required Features:

300 lbs minimum weight capacity
Pool lifts must have a weight capacity of 300 pounds minimum and be capable of sustaining a static load of at least one and a half times the rated load. However, according to the ADA Standards, "Pool lifts should be provided that meet the needs of the population they serve. Providing a pool lift with a weight capacity greater than 300 pounds (136kg) may be advisable." 

Seats - Solid seat at least 16" wide
There are a variety of seats available made of different materials. Pool lift seats made of corrosion resistant materials that provide a padded yet firm base are the most user friendly. Although not required, seats with backs enable a larger number of persons with disabilities to use the lift independently. Additional enhancements to support a wider variety of people include headrests, seat belts, and additional leg support.

Footrests - must be provided and move with the seat.
This provides more stability for the lift user.Padded footrests provide extra comfort and help reduce the chance of injury. Footrests are NOT required on lifts provided in spas

Armrests. Armrests are not required. 
If provided, the armrest positioned opposite the water should be removable or should be able to fold clear of the seat when the seat is in the raised (load) position.

Capable of unassisted operation from the deck and the water.
Allows a person to call the lift when the pool lift is in the opposite position. It is extremely important for a person who is swimming alone to be able to call the pool lift when it is in the up position so he or she will not be stranded in the water for extended periods of time awaiting assistance.

Ease of Operation. 
A person must be able to operate the lift with one hand, and the operating controls must not require tight grasping, pinching, or twisting of the wrist. Controls must not require more than five pounds of pressure to operate. The controls and operating mechanisms should be unobstructed when the lift is in use.
