In addition to federal regulations that exist, some states have state appliance regulations and codes addressing energy efficiency. PHTA advocates for the adoption of national codes and PHTA standards when addressing energy efficiency at the state level. This includes advocating for the adoption of the APSP-14 Standard for Portable Spa Energy Efficiency and PHTA-15 Standard for Residential Pool and Spa Energy Efficiency, both of which are adopted by reference in the International Swimming Pool & Spa Code.
Pools and spas are becoming greener, and that’s a good thing!
PHTA recognizes the trend that consumers want and expect energy efficient pools, spas and hot tubs. Using its technical research and standards, PHTA developed two energy standards, ANSI/PHTA/ICC-15 2021 Standard for Residential Swimming Pool and Spa Energy Efficiency and ANSI/APSP/ICC-14 2019 Standard for Portable Electric Spa Energy Efficiency as a way for manufacturers to demonstrate their commitment to sustainable and green products. And it gives consumers more choices to save even more money while enjoying their pool, spa or hot tub.

The APSP-14 standard requires that each spa sold is provided with a label indicating the spa manufacturer, model, volume, and energy usage information. This label is to be affixed to either the spa shell or front cabinetry and to be visible at the point of sale and only removed by the customer. Many states and jurisdictions are now employing APSP-14 and the label is needed for compliance. PHTA has provided standardized templates for your convenience.
Please use the standardized template labels below to incorporate the energy data for each of your models.
