Westside Pool installs the first SNHD approved VAC -ALERT
Safety Vacuum Release System (SVRS) in compliance with the
‘‘Virginia Graeme Baker Pool and Spa Safety Act"
SRVS System
and Rola-Chem
Chemical Feeder
July 8, 2008
The Vac-Alert Safety Vacuum Release
System's spring-loaded piston reacts
instantaneously, opening to
atmosphere and releasing the
life-threatening suction of the drain.
Contactors sense the vacuum release
and trip the alarm.
Audible/Visual alarm alerts pool users
to unsafe conditions and sounds until
pool operators respond.
Vac-Alert "releases to atmosphere" but
does not shut off pump allowing for
reduced but continuous circulation and
Rola-Chem Chemical pumps feed
liquid chlorine eliminating Cyanuric
acid problems.
This product, when installed in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions, is
designed to protect against injury caused by body or limb entrapment. This device
is not designed for protection against hair entanglement. It may mitigate evisceration.
The Vac-AlertTM SVRS must be routinely tested to ensure ongoing safe operation of
the unit. It is required that the SVRS be tested, per the prescribed testing
procedures, prior to the start of each swimming season, and recommended
thereafter at least once per month while the pool or spa remains in use by the end user.
