What is the difference between a "portable" lift and a "fixed" lift?
The real issue is not whether a lift is "portable" versus "fixed," but rather whether a lift is "fixed" versus "non-fixed." A fixed lift means that the lift is attached to the pool deck or apron in some way. A non-fixed lift means that it is not attached in any way. Therefore, a portable lift that is attached to the pool deck would be considered a fixed lift. Thus, owners of portable lifts can fully comply with the access requirements by affixing their lifts to the pool deck or apron.
What is the Department of Justice's approach to ensure compliance with the ADA regulation pertaining to pool lifts?
As a general matter, the Department favors voluntary compliance with the ADA from covered entities. The Department seeks collaborative approaches. To achieve these objectives, the Department has a robust outreach and technical assistance program designed to assist businesses and State and local governments to understand their obligations under the ADA.
