Hundreds of pools and spas in Illinois haven't complied with federal and state laws requiring potentially dangerous drains be replaced with safer equipment. Hotels, exercise centers, condominium complexes and schools in Arlington Heights, Cary, Elgin, Gurnee, Lombard, Mount Prospect, Naperville, Palatine, Schaumburg, Wheaton, and many other suburbs are among those on the state public health department's noncompliance list.
