The pool and spa industry is being inundated with a crushing 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.
