I. General Safety Procedures.
A. The suction outlet to a swimming pool pump pulls a high vacuum. If pump is used with only one suction
pipe, anyone blocking pump suction with hair or body will be trapped and held against the suction fitting.
Disembowelment or drowning can result. To prevent entrapment, install at least two suction (outlet)
fittings in pool. Separate these outlets by either of the following procedures.
1. Locate the outlets at least three (3) feet apart.
2. Locate the outlets in two different planes, (for example, on two separate vertical side walls). Use
multiple suction sources to reduce risk of entrapment. Failure to maintain fittings and covers can lead
to severe injury or death. Use of fittings when covers are broken, loose or missing can lead to severe
injury or death.
a. Consult your local building dept. for codes or ordinances that may apply.
