Position Statements

Leading professionals in the pool and spa industry create position statements to help improve safety, reduce energy consumption, raise the current standards, and build better quality projects.

Please note, these documents are not consensus standards or building codes and have not gone through the consensus procedures of any recognized standards writing authority.

We encourage the free distribution, use, and reference of this document in whole or in part. Individuals or firms involved with the design, engineering, construction, maintenance, and operation of pools, spas, and water features may use these position statements to guide their work; however, in no way does this relieve them from compliance with all laws, codes, standards, regulations, ordinances, or other requirements.
