International Pool & Spa Code

The only comprehensive swimming pool code coordinated with the current requirements in the I-Codes and PHTA standards. The 2018 ISPSC integrates seamlessly with the family of I-Codes and contains requirements that meet or exceed the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act. In addition, hot water storage tanks are now required to be listed and labeled to a standard. New sections were introduced into the code to cover solar thermal water heating system.
