Since 1960, NSF has been helping consumers, public health officials and aquatic facility managers who are concerned about the quality and safety of products used in public and private pools and other recreational water settings.
Whether you have your own pool or hot tub or use a public pool, hot tub or water facility, it’s important to make sure that the right equipment is being used to treat the water as well as to prevent potential injuries. NSF’s certification program for pool, hot tub and spa components covers a wide range of products.
NSF certifies pools and hot tubs as well as equipment used in these products, including filters, drain covers, pumps and disinfection equipment. Our certification program includes laboratory testing along with audits of production facilities.
The NSF certification mark on a pool, spa or hot tub component means that the product was reviewed and certified by NSF to meet applicable American National Standards for design, construction and/or performance.
We also conduct annual audits at each authorized production facility and regular re-testing of certified products to confirm that they continue to comply with all requirements of certification. We also verify that labeling and product literature are true and accurate with respect to NSF certification claims.
Many products for use in and around pools and hot tubs can help increase your comfort and safety. When shopping for your pool and hot tub components, make sure they have been certified by NSF to meet applicable standards for product design and performance.
