The National Sanitation Foundation standard 50, which is required by most U.S. states, covers products that are used in public or commercial swimming pools, spas and other recreational water facilities like water parks. “The certification of Aquatherm helps assure homeowners and operators at recreational water facilities that their passive solar radiant heaters are free from unacceptable levels of contaminants and perform and continue to perform effectively under the intended use conditions,”
Certification includes: material safety, corrosion resistance, design and construction, product marking, dimensional testing, hydrostatic pressure testing at 1.5x the working pressure, design burst pressure testing at 2.0x the working pressure, head loss or pressure loss testing, 20,000 cycle high/low pressure testing, high temperature burst pressure safety testing, marking, and labeling requirements.
“We are excited to have the first and only solar pool heating collector to be certified by NSF, which adds tremendous credibility to the Aquatherm brand image in the commercial pool market as well as a powerful tool for the Aquatherm Dealer Network,” said David Sizelove, President of Aquatherm. “Residential pool owners and their families can also rest assured, knowing their solar pool heater and the water they swim in is safe.”
