PHTA Membership Benefits


Becoming a member and belonging to an organization that is bigger than yourself can impact your career and business in ways you may not have considered. Being a member of the Pool & Hot Tub Alliance is easy, and you get so much in return. You can trust us with your best interests while having access to member benefits that impact your community. We are dedicated to the growth and development of our members’ businesses, and to the promotion, enjoyment and safety of pools, spas and hot tubs.


At PHTA, our government relations team works tirelessly to advocate for public safety and member interests, while opposing overly restrictive and unreasonable policies that could damage member businesses and economies. PHTA reviews over 1,000 pieces of regulation and legislation every year. Additionally, we have continued efforts to push for a universal International Swimming Pool & Spa Code for all 50 states. We are proud that the code has been adopted in 20 states and more than 170 localities so far.


Our members can connect to over 30 chapters across the country. Some of the industry’s most dedicated professionals come together to support one another and spur innovation in their communities. Many chapters also have an affiliate WAVE Young Professionals Network that serves as a launch pad for professionals under 40-years-old. Not only do members have access to joining chapters, leadership opportunities are also available through PHTA councils and committees.


We want to give you the tools you need to be successful in the industry. You’ll be given access to marketing tools highlighting your status as a PHTA member and can be used to promote your business and certifications. We also tailor weekly e-newsletters with pertinent updates and headlines exclusively for our members. You’ll be in the know about industry happenings and how they affect you and your business. Let us do some of the legwork to position you for success!


Every year PHTA recognizes prominent achievements and outstanding performers in the pool, spa and hot tub industry. Our awards program is extensive and is only open to active PHTA members. This is another way you can set yourself and your business apart. Showcase your talent, hard work and dedication through the numerous awards we bestow annually.


Education makes you a stronger professional, and at PHTA, our courses are the standard in the industry. Members enjoy discounted enrollment fees for certification classes and materials. In 2019, we’ve invested more than $1.4 million dollars and over 2,000 staff and volunteer hours in order to roll out new and improved online education and training manuals for all our certifications.
