The Virginia Graeme Baker Act

I'm all for laws protecting children from their idiotic parents. At first glance the Virginia Graeme Baker act seems like a rule that will protect small children from drowning in a swimming pool the event their parents aren't watching them as diligently as they should.

Unfortunately this is often far from the truth. Here in New Mexico we already have anti entrapment regulations. The difference between our regulations and the VGB act is that they are requiring a very specific type of ANSI approved drain cover. A few days ago I was at a pool inspection and they had installed the new pool drain covers. They told me that the suction from the new drain cover was stronger than the previous one they had that met State of New Mexico standards.

This is moronic.
