Recent Entrapment Raises Installation Issues

The venue: The entrapment occurred in a kiddie pool at the Langford Farms Swim Club in the Old Hickory section of Nashville. The pool is approximately 12 inches deep.

Hardware questions: Industry observers note the rust stains on two of the holes on the Drainsafe DS 360 drain cover, pictured here, saying it may indicate that non-compliant screws were used.

Compliance questions: Officials report that the drain cover had become at least partially dislodged, leaving an exposed sump. This would take the pool out of compliance.

SVRS issue: Stingl Products said the screen message pictured would not appear on its device if it had ever been in operation, leading them to believe the SVRS had been bypassed.
