PHTA Issues Call for Participation on Revision of Suction Entrapment Avoidance Standard
Date:6/28/2020

The Pool & Hot Tub Alliance (PHTA) has issued a call for participation in the revision and redesignation of the ANSI/APSP/ICC-7 2013 American National Standard for Suction Entrapment Avoidance In Swimming Pools, Wading Pools, Spas, Hot Tubs, and Catch Basins. PHTA is seeking member participation on the PHTA-7 Standard Writing Committee (SWC) for Suction Entrapment Avoidance in Swimming Pools, Wading Pools, Spas, Hot Tubs, and Catch Basins.

The provisions of the PHTA-7 Standard apply to the design and performance criteria for circulation systems including components, devices, and related technology installed to protect against entrapment hazards in residential and public swimming pools, wading pools, inground spas, infinity edge basins (infinity edge type pools), catch pools, and aquatic recreation facilities.

“Believe it or not, it has been seven long years since we last updated the suction entrapment avoidance standard. At one time, entrapment accidents seemed to be happening every day. This standard has almost completely eliminated these types of accidents,” said PHTA-7 SWC Chair Kenneth Gregory of Pentair Water Quality Systems. “Keeping our standards current is one of the most important things PHTA does for all of us, and this standard has had the most impact on safety than any other standard,” continued Gregory.

“PHTA is looking for individuals committed to safety including industry subject matter experts willing to share their experience and knowledge to help prevent entrapments,” said PHTA Director of Standards Promotion and Adoption Susan J. Hilaski.

Designers, builders, installers and operators of swimming pools, wading pools, spas, hot tubs and catch basins; professionals of vacuum limiting systems; manufacturers of safety vacuum release devices/systems; manufacturers of swimming pool & spa circulation devices/components, swimming pool & spa pumps, automatic pump shut-off devices/systems; service companies; test labs and test lab engineers; parties interested in entrapment avoidance issues; building and health code officials; and consumers are encouraged to participate on the PHTA-7 SWC.

Application forms are due to PHTA on July 10, 2020 and may be sent to standards@phta.org. For more information, email PHTA Director of Standards Promotion and Adoption, Susan J. Hilaski at shilaski@phta.org or visit https://www.apsp.org/standards-codes/participate-in-standards.
