US revises public pool water quality standard

According to a report from Canadian-based Pool & Spa Marketing, the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP) has announced the newly revised ANSI/APSP/ICC-11 2019 Standard for Water Quality in Public Pools and Spas.

While it's not available for download as yet, the new standard is said to include significant changes that will impact pool and spa service professionals in the United States.

Focusing on the industry developments that affect bather safety, the report suggests the new standard reflects an improved understanding of water quality and chemistry when compared with the 2009 version. It aims to provide minimum guidelines relating to water quality parameters in public pools and spas. It will address secondary disinfection systems and the impact of stabilised chlorine on disinfection, among other things, based on the latest technical information.
