standards and codes


PHTA works with code development organizations and state and local officials to ensure the pool and hot tub industry has representation in the creation and adoption of code language that will impact engineers, builders, designers, and other stakeholders. This includes PHTA’s partnership with ICC in the maintenance of the International Swimming Pool and Spa Code.
