Extensive solutions to support pool and spa manufacturers
From individual residential use to public pools or those in multi-unit dwellings, pools and spas support recreation in many ways. To do so effectively, pools, spas and the associated components that keep them operating must meet safety and performance standards while complying with health requirements. As a full-service, third-party laboratory, UL offers comprehensive advisory and testing solutions to help you bring your products to the global market quickly and efficiently.
As with the broader water and plumbing industry, pool and spa manufacturers face numerous considerations and challenges that extend beyond performance, life safety and health factors. We understand these complex needs and can help guide you toward market access as you design, produce and sell your pool and spa products.
With wide ranging expertise, UL works with you to help identify applicable regulations, mitigate risks and help you demonstrate safety. We offer guidance and solutions to help you address electrical safety, interoperability, cybersecurity, and environmental concerns and can also certify pool and spa products intended for sale in international markets using both the CE and CB scheme.
Build customer trust with comprehensive pool and spa services
As the pool and spa industry continues to evolve in response to new technology and customer expectations, UL is here to help you understand these changes and keep pace with what you need for seamless market access.
At UL, we partner with you to understand your needs, help you identify applicable standards and tests, and ensure you understand the results of every test we perform. Our full-service approach enables you to better identify what you need to consider for compliance and market readiness. We can perform tests to international, national and regional standards as well as customer-specified performance criteria for a complete review of pool and spa product safety and performance.
Along with sanitation standards from the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/NSF, we can help you meet important environmental regulations, including ENERGY STAR 2.0 and California Energy Commission (CEC) Title 20. Thanks to our expertise in adjacent industries, we can also help you take a more in-depth look at your smart pool and spa products and processes with solutions designed to evaluate cybersecurity risks and mitigate potential interoperability issues. These services combine to make UL a single-source provider and partner, helping you demonstrate trust with your customers.
Pool and spa services from product design to market readiness
In addition to evaluating your products, UL offers structural design assessments and pre-certification review solutions. We can also help ensure that product quality remains consistent by working with you to verify and validate work across your entire supply chain. By engaging with UL early in the product lifecycle, you can begin to identify and mitigate risks before they pose problems as you move into production.
