Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) September 29, 2016
The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals announces that a public review and comment period is open on a proposed new American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard, which addresses water conservation efficiency in pools, spas, portable spas and swim spas through October 17, 2016.
The proposed ANSI/APSP/ICC-13-201x, Standard for Water Conservation Efficiency in Pools, Spas, Portable Spas and Swim Spas, covers methods and technologies to increase the efficient use and conservation of water for residential and public recreational pools, spas, portable spas, and swim spas equipped with a filtration circulation system.
In recent years, a number of areas across the country have experienced drought conditions and some are considering placing restrictions on pool/spa construction and maintenance in an effort to save water. Dan Johnson, CBP, who serves as Chairman of the APSP-13 writing committee stated, “By adopting this standard municipalities, pool and spa owners, builders and service professionals all benefit. The efficiency of water use and reduced water loss in pools and spas operating in compliance with this standard will be substantial.”
To receive an electronic draft of the newly proposed water conservation efficiency standard or to comment, please contact APSP director of standards promotion and adoption Susan J. Hilaski at shilaski(at)apsp.org or call 703.838.0083 ext. 150. The comment deadline is Monday, October 17, 2016. If you are submitting a comment, you may copy ANSI at psa(at)ansi.org.
