New California Law Requires Additional Pool Safety Devices

Effective January 1, 2018, California law requires that when a permit is issued for the building or remodeling of a swimming pool or spa, that pool or spa must be equipped with at least two of seven specified safety devices. Moreover, home inspectors are now required to make note of the presence or absence of such devices.

Under state law, this will apply to any structure, in or above the ground, that is intended for swimming or recreational bathing and that has a water depth of at least 18 inches.

 The legislative act that brought this new law about was Senate Bill 442 (Newman). It amends section 7195 of the Business and Professions Code and sections 115922 and 115925 of the Health and Safety Code.

The Senate Bill Analysis notes that drowning is the second leading cause of death for children between the ages of 1 and 4. Additionally, for every drowning in this age group, five or more suffer from near-drowning injuries that can cause life-long disabilities.

In 1997, California’s Swimming Pool Safety Act went into effect. That law required that any single-family home pool built thereafter had to be equipped with at least one of the five following safety devices: (1) a permanent fence, of specified dimensions, that isolates the pool or spa from the home; (2) a pool cover meeting certain safety standards, (3) exit alarms on doors leading from the home to the pool, (4) self-closing, self-latching devices on doors leading from the home to the pool; or (5) any other safety device feature providing as much protection as the specified four and as verified by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

In 2006, the act was amended to include (6) removable mesh fencing that meets ASTM standards and a gate that is self-closing, self-latching and can accommodate a key lockable device, and (7) a pool alarm that sounds when someone or something of a certain size (determined by ASTM) enters the water.

The new law requires that any pool or spa built or remodeled after January 1, 2018 must have at least two of the specified safety features. The bill does not apply to any of the estimated million-plus pools that were built before 1997, unless they are to be remodeled. It also does not apply to public swimming pools, hot tubs with ASTM-approved locking covers, nor to apartment complexes or any residential setting other than a single-family home.

The bill also requires that, if a home inspection report is issued for a single-family home that has a pool or spa, “… the report shall identify which, if any, of the seven drowning prevention safety features [as listed] the pool or spa is equipped with and shall specifically state if the pool or spa has fewer than two of the listed drowning prevention safety features.”

The new law does not specify any penalty for a home inspector’s failure to include this information in his or her report. Nor does it make installation of any safety device a requirement of property transfer.

In 2016, an identical bill was vetoed by the Governor. In his veto message he wrote, “Nothing prevents a homeowner from adding as many additional safety features as they desire to their own pool. The choice on how to protect children is best left to parents.”

Bill Introduced To Help Homeowners Recover From Mudslide Losses

Source: Office of Sen. Jackson

To help residents whose homes were devastated or destroyed in the recent Montecito mudslides, State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara) has just introduced a bill to ensure that fire insurance policies cover losses incurred from fire-induced mudslides.

Senate Bill 917 clarifies that, under current law, an insurance policy covers loss or damage resulting from a landslide if that landslide was attributable to a condition already covered by the policy, such as wildfires.

The bill is designed to help current Montecito homeowners whose home insurance coverage of mudslide losses may be under question following the January 9 event, which killed at least 21 residents, injured many others and destroyed almost 10 percent of Montecito’s homes.

While most residents are required to have property insurance, few had purchased optional flood insurance. The mudslide resulted when significant rains – at one point falling at the rate of a half-inch in five minutes – fell upon a burn scar left by the Thomas Fire, the largest wildfire in California history.

“We have seen at least one insurance company step up to the plate for these residents following this devastating mudslide, but for others, questions still remain regarding whether their fire insurance policies will cover the losses from these fire-caused mudslides,” said Jackson. “My bill makes it clear that current law requires coverage of these fire-caused events. For many Californians, their home is their nest egg, and the result of a lifetime of hard work. This is a question of justice and fairness for these residents, many of them retirees, and any Californians who find themselves in similar situations.”

A hearing for the bill has not yet been scheduled.

Jackson represents the 19th Senate District, which includes all of Santa Barbara County and western Ventura County.

How to Help Montecito Mudslide Victims

Recovery from the Montecito mudslides and debris flows will be a long process, and local residents want to help however they can.

There are ways to donate, volunteer and otherwise support families who have lost loved ones, people who have lost their homes, and the emergency response effort.

Counselors can donate their time by calling the Santa Barbara County call center at 833.688.5551 and asking to speak to the community wellness team, which is gathering a list of volunteers.

The United Way of Santa Barbara County and United Way of Ventura County fundraising effort for Thomas Fire victims has been expanded to include flood victims, the organizations said this week.

All donations to the United Way Thomas Fire and Flood Fund go directly to people impacted by the disasters, they said.

As of this week, about $2.7 million has been raised for the fund.

Donations can be made online here, by texting UWVC to 41444; by calling the Ventura office at 805.485.6288 or Santa Barbara office at 805.965.8591.

People can also send in checks directly, with “Thomas Fire Fund” in the memo.

The United Way of Santa Barbara County: 320 E. Gutierrez St, Santa Barbara, CA 93101.

The United Way of Ventura County: 702 County Square Drive, Suite 100, Ventura, CA 93003.

Santa Barbara County released a list of verified organizations that are accepting monetary donations and needed items:

Foodbank of Santa Barbara County: Monetary donations, nonperishable foods, and fresh produce are accepted at:

» 4554 Hollister Ave., Santa Barbara

» 1525 State St., Ste 100, Santa Barbara

» 490 W. Foster Rd., Santa Maria

The Foodbank also has emergency food distribution sites for people who have been displaced from their homes or are facing economic hardships from lost work after the Thomas Fire and Montecito floods. They need volunteers, too.

Salvation Army: Unopened and canned food and monetary donations are accepted at 423 Chapala St., Santa Barbara.

Unity Shoppe: New clothing, shoes, blankets, toiletries and monetary donations are accepted at 1401 Chapala St., Santa Barbara.

Santa Barbara Partners in Education places volunteers in local schools, and people can sign up online. Schools and nonprofit organizations can also request volunteers.

In light of recent disasters, the community’s needs are changing, and Partners in Education will need to adapt to meet new requests for volunteer support, Executive Director Chelsea Duffy said in an email message. Contact the organization for more information, at partners@sbceo.org or 805.964.4710 extension 4401.

The United Boys and Girls Club of Santa Barbara County says that any children who have been displaced can come to any of its club locations. The clubs are a place for kids to go if their parents are at work and making a longer commute than usual, said Erynn Wanek, vice president of development for the organization.

Monetary donations can also be made to agencies supporting the disaster response for the Montecito Flood, including the American Red Cross and Direct Relief. People can also sign up to volunteer through the Red Cross’ website.

There are several grassroots efforts to collect needed donations for families who have lost their homes or are evacuated, including a Santa Barbara Helpers site connecting families in need directly to people who can help.

Boil Water Advisory issued for Montecito, Summerland following storm
MONTECITO, Calif. – A Boil Water Advisory has been issued for the communities of Montecito and Summerland following a devastating storm early Tuesday morning.
The State Water Resources Control Board, along with the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department and the Montecito Water District, are telling residents not to drink tap water before bringing it to a boil. Failure to follow the advisory may result in stomach or intestinal illness, officials say.
Boil your water for one minute and let it cool before using:
·         An alternative method of disinfection for residents that are not able to boil their water is to use fresh, unscented, liquid household bleach. To do so, add 8 drops (or 1/8 teaspoon) of bleach per gallon of clear water or 16 drops (or 1/4 teaspoon) per gallon of cloudy water, mix thoroughly, and allow it to stand for 30 minutes before using. A chlorine-like taste and odor will result from this disinfection procedure and is an indication that adequate disinfection has taken place.
·         Water disinfection tablets may also be used by following the manufacturer’s instructions.
Use bottled water if you don’t want to boil your tap water. Boiled or tap water should be used for drinking and food preparation until further notice. Additionally, don’t forget to share that boiled or bottled water with your pet.

Constance St., was scheduled to be open until 8 p.m. Tuesday and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday. ​​The county has an information line for people to get storm updates, request transportation assistance and talk to a counselor, at 805.681.5542, or by calling 2-1-1.

Severe Weather Safety Tips
With the National Weather Service predicting more severe weather, heavy rain, and flash flooding in the Thomas Fire burn areas around Montecito, Summerland, and Carpinteria, it is now more important than ever to have an emergency plan in place and leave.

The following information comes directly from https://www.ready.gov/floods:

BASIC SAFETY TIPS
·         Turn Around, Don’t Drown! ®
·         Avoid walking or driving through flood waters.
·         Do not drive over bridges that are over fast-moving floodwaters. Floodwaters can scour foundation material from around the footings and make the bridge unstable.
·         Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down, and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away.
·         If there is a chance of flash flooding, move immediately to higher ground.
·         If floodwaters rise around your car but the water is not moving, abandon the car and move to higher ground. Do not leave the car and enter moving water.
·         Avoid camping or parking along streams, rivers, and creeks during heavy rainfall. These areas can flood quickly and with little warning.

FLOOD WATCH
Flood Watch = “Be Aware.” Conditions are right for flooding to occur in your area.
Steps to Take
·         Turn on your TV/radio. You will receive the latest weather updates and emergency instructions.
·         Know where to go. You may need to reach higher ground quickly and on foot.
·         Build or restock your emergency preparedness kit. Include a flashlight, batteries, cash, and first aid supplies.
Prepare Your Home
·         Bring in outdoor furniture and move important indoor items to the highest possible floor. This will help protect them from flood damage.
·         Disconnect electrical appliances and do not touch electrical equipment if you are wet or standing in water. You could be electrocuted.
·         If instructed, turn off your gas and electricity at the main switch or valve. This helps prevent fires and explosions.

FLOOD WARNING
Flood Warning = “Take Action!”  Flooding can still happen.
Steps to Take
·         Move immediately to higher ground or stay on high ground.
·         Evacuate if directed.
·         Avoid walking or driving through flood waters. Turn Around, Don’t Drown! Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away.

AFTER A FLOOD
·         Return home only when authorities say it is safe.
·         Be aware of areas where floodwaters have receded and watch out for debris. Floodwaters often erode roads and walkways.
·         Do not attempt to drive through areas that are still flooded.
·         Avoid standing water as it may be electrically charged from underground or downed power lines.
·         Photograph damage to your property for insurance purposes.

WHEN IT IS NOT FLOODING: MAKE A FLOOD PLAN
·         Know your flood risk.
·         Familiarize yourself with local emergency plans. Know where to go and how to get there should you need to get to higher ground, the highest level of a building, or to evacuate.
·         Make a flood emergency plan for the relevant type/s of local flood risk with plans such as evacuation, shelter, locations for high ground.
·         Build or restock your emergency preparedness kit, including a minimum of 3 days of food and water, flashlight, batteries, cash, and first aid supplies.
·         Consider buying flood insurance.
·         Stay tuned to your phone alerts, TV, or radio for weather updates, emergency instructions, or evacuation orders.

10 Hot Trends For Your Home In 2018

10 Hot Trends For Your Home In 2018

Starting to think about making changes to your home? The new year is, not surprisingly, a popular time to try on new trends or make overdue updates. Before you hit the paint store or buy those new kitchen cabinets, take a look at what industry experts are predicting will be some of the hottest home trends for 2018.

Brass

Brass has been showing up in kitchens, baths, and lighting for a few years, but homeowners who were hesitant to take the leap can feel more confident next year. Brass accents are expected to be huge for 2018.

 

The end of the all-white kitchen?

It’s been the dominant interior trend for several years now, with white cabinets, white subway tile, and white quartz or marble countertops dominating kitchen design. But, next year, don’t be afraid to add a little color. Everyone will be doing it.

“Houzz says white will always be a classic color for kitchen design, but homeowners are expected to throw in bits of color, especially other neutrals like gray and blue,” said inman. “In order to add a little warmth to such a cool palette, designers are ditching painted cabinets for warm wood tones, such as mahogany.”

Mindfulness

Last year, hygge made a splash, bringing “the Danish concept of finding contentment in cosiness” to the home,” said The Independent. While we’re not quite ready to get rid of this homey trend, a new one is burgeoning: Ikigai. Will this lifestyle concept from Japan “help us live our best lives?”

The central principle of Ikigai is about finding purpose in life, and covers everything from a mindfulness surrounding daily tasks and goals to social connections to what we buy—and keep—in our home.

Wabi-Sabi

Of course, don’t fear that following Ikigai means you have to be perfect. If you also follow the principle of wabi-sabi, “the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection,” said Country Living, you can relax your mind and enjoy your surroundings without needing everything to look just so. “In home design, this translates to handmade or hand-painted items including rough linens and pottery. The result? A deeply personal, organic aesthetic.”

Into the purple

Ultra Violet, a rich, dark purple, is Pantone’s new 2018 color of the year, so if you’re a fan, you’ll have lots of options for incorporating it into your home in 2018.

Lavender

If Ultra Violet is too dramatic for you, there are other options within the purple family that designers say will be hot for 2018. “Millennial pink is still around and I still love it, but it’s morphing into lavender and lilac,” Nancy Fire, creative director of HGTV HOME, Design Works International and Studio NYC Design told House Beautiful. “People were sarcastic about millennial pink at the beginning, but it’s being used to bring out beautiful, soft tones with accents that are deeper.”

The end of gray?  In other very important color news: “Beige and brown are back,” said Gates Interior Design. “If you never got around to embracing the grey trend, well guess what? You’re back in!”

A sink to remember

Popularized in large part by HGTV’s Chip and Joanna Gaines, the farmhouse sink has earned superstar status in the kitchen. But, they have mostly been stainless steel. Not so in 2018. Houzz predicts “warmer hues and grittier textures,” with “concrete, stone, copper and granite composite sinks in darker hues of gray, bronze or black.”

Circles

Geometric shapes aren’t going anywhere, but we may be seeing more than linear shapes next year. “Hard geometrics are going to be huge, and I think circles are the new triangle,” interior designer Genevieve Gorder told House Beautiful. “You can start small with accent pillows or dive in with graphic wallpaper.

Non-linear shapes are also showing up in other areas, like these curvy couches.

Standout lampshades Make a little, no-commitment update by addressing your lampshades. “White drum lampshades, begone,” said My Domaine. Anna Brockway, co-founder of Chairish, told them, “We’re seeing strong interest in pleated, patterned, and even wicker lampshades. This is a great way to get a sophisticated, decorated look and bring freshness to existing lighting pieces.”
