In The News: July 2007

The Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP) invites industry members to join its Technical Committee as well as the APSP-7, APSP-5 and APSP-1 Standard committees.

The Technical Committee reviews all the technical, safety and health affairs of the APSP, specifically for technical accuracy product-related consensus standards. Members are selected to provide technical expertise for pool and spa design, construction and operation.

The Suction Entrapment Avoidance Standard (APSP-7) committee will draft new language in the form of a supplement. Members are selected to provide technical expertise for pool and spa circulation system design and operation.

With the next five-year ANSI review cycle of the Standard for Public Swimming Pools (update of ANSI/NSPI-1 2003) on its way, the APSP is looking for members with expertise in commercial pool facilities and expertise in design, construction and operation of these facilities.

The Residential In-ground Pool Standard (APSP-5) committee is beginning a cover-to-cover review and rewrite for publication of the next edition.
