2021 International Swimming Pool and Spa Code® (ISPSC)
The only comprehensive swimming pool code coordinated with the current requirements in the I-Codes and APSP standards. Developed in cooperation with the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP), the ISPSC establishes minimum regulations for public and residential pools, spas, and hot tubs using prescriptive and performance-related provisions. The ISPSC integrates seamlessly with the family of I-Codes and contains requirements that meet or exceed the Virginia Graeme Baker Act. The ISPSC also contains APSP-7 Standard for Suction Entrapment Avoidance.
Important changes in the ISPSC include:
- Clarification regarding flotation tank systems for sensory deprivation therapy.
- New requirements for hot water storage tanks.
- New sections covering solar thermal water heating systems.
