1)Purpose  . The intent of this legislation is to update current
            swimming pool safety standards to include the latest
            performance standards, technology and terminology. Primarly,
            current law uses the terms drains, main drain and suction
            outlet.  For example, the terms drain or main drain is a
            misnomer.  Pools cannot be emptied from the main drain that can only work if the pool is situated above ground level. In-ground pools cannot be drained from the main drain. The
            proper terminology is either a "suction outlet" or
            "circulation system."
