    Yeah, a pool under 30 linear feet of wall just needs the slope. I thnk he was thinking about getting to the top of a water slide, but it looks like those do not need to be accessible.

    I'm starting to think people should read what's actually needed, it's not as cut and dried as all pools must have a lift.

    Actually, it may be cut and dried. Here is a new article:

    This one quote is the one that I am not quite sure I understand.

    I know that at the Y, the lift is only operated by the guards. So even with a permanent lift, you still need help. Many other facilities would probably want employees operating the lifts as well.

    Plus, who gets sued when a kid gets hurt playing on it? Are hotels pools now going to be required to have lifeguards to supervise the equipment? If so, many will close pools, or at least make them adults only.
