What are the common types of defective swimming pools or swimming pool items in Columbus, Ohio?

  • Drain and Pump Defects – drains or pumps that are inadequately covered or malfunction can cause what is called “suction entrapment”. The swimmer may become stuck under water because of the powerful suction which could lead to serious injury or even drowning.
  • Diving Board, Ladder & Slide Defects – When diving boards are installed in pools that are too shallow, or the diving board or ladder fails, the person using those swimming pool items could become seriously injured including broken bones, head injuries, or drowning.
  • Pool Filter Defects – Some pool filters have been known to explode because of compressed air used to power the filter. These explosions could send shrapnel flying through the air causing serious injuries including concussions, lacerations, or worse.
