The pool and spa industry is being inundated with acrushing number of legislative and regulatory initiatives on entrapment, energy, accessibility, and more. Many such proposals threaten the economic life’s blood of an industry already struggling against a weak economy, without providing real benefit to pool, spa, and hot tub users. Because of APSP’s unequalled industry leadership – its national reputation, unsurpassed membership numbers, and credibility as the only pool, spa, and hot tub standards writing organization accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) – regulatory and legislative bodies at every level turn first to APSP. The result is a respected track record for upholding consumer interests while helping defeat or revise initiatives that otherwise would harm APSP members. Together we will reach our destination of a stronger, healthier, safer, and more profitable swimming pool and hot tub industry.
