“Residential pool owners and their families can also rest assured, knowing their solar pool heater and the water they swim in is safe.”
Lakewood, NJ (PRWEB) September 01, 2011
Aquatherm Industries, Inc., manufacturer of solar heaters for swimming pools, is proud to announce it is the first and only manufacturer to receive NSF/ANSI Standard-50 certification for its solar pool heating systems.
The National Sanitation Foundation Standard 50, which is required by most U.S. states, covers products that are used in public or commercial swimming pools, spas and other recreational water facilities like water parks.
“The certification of Aquatherm helps assure homeowners and operators at recreational water facilities that their passive solar radiant heaters are free from unacceptable levels of contaminants and perform and continue to perform effectively under the intended use conditions,” said Dave Purkiss, General Manager for NSF International’s Water Treatment and Distribution program.
Aquatherm became the first and only manufacturer of NSF-listed solar pool heaters after submitting its Ecosun, Solar Industries, Ultra-Swim, Sun-Swim, Sunlite, and Ecolite models to the rigorous safety, durability, and toxicity testing by NSF.
Certification included material safety, corrosion resistance, design and construction, product marking, dimensional testing, hydrostatic pressure testing at 1.5x the working pressure, design burst pressure testing at 2.0x the working pressure, head loss or pressure loss testing, 20,000 cycle high/low pressure testing, high temperature burst pressure safety testing, marking, and labeling requirements.
“We are excited to have the first and only solar pool heating system to be certified by NSF, which adds tremendous credibility to the Aquatherm brand image in the commercial pool market as well as a powerful tool for the Aquatherm Dealer Network,” said David Sizelove, President of Aquatherm. “Residential pool owners and their families can also rest assured, knowing their solar pool heater and the water they swim in is safe.”
Since the certification of its solar pool heaters, several of the manufacturer’s Dealers in key markets around the country have noticed a clear selling advantage over their competition, specifically in the commercial pool and aquatics facilities sector.
Aquatherm Industries is the largest manufacturer of solar pool heating systems in the United States, the only manufacturer of NSF listed solar pool heaters, and the only US solar collector manufacturer to achieve the ISO 9001:2008 quality standard. Aquatherm manufactures several of the industry’s leading brands of solar pool heating collectors, including the Solar Industries and Ecosun collectors.
Aquatherm’s entire manufacturing process takes place at its 50,000-square foot technology center in Lakewood, NJ - the most modern facility of its kind in the world.
