SPASA launches Climate Care Certification

The Climate Care Certification Program is an initiative of the Swimming Pool & Spa Association of Australia Ltd (SPASA). It is the Pool and Spa industry’s new efficiency and sustainability certification program.

SPASA has developed this program to support, protect and promote the way the swimming pool and spa industry operates and strives for best practice sustainable solutions.

By participating in the Climate Care Certification Program, members of SPASA can promote their products, services and installations under an industry approved, environmentally sustainable program.

A climate care certified product, system or installation/retrofit/construction is one that creates a new benchmark for swimming pools and spas which utilises:

  • Water efficiency/sustainability
  • Energy efficiency
  • Noise reduction measures
  • Environmentally sustainable designs
  • Efficiency/sustainability innovations
  • Smart Approved WaterMark

    Smart Approved WaterMark is ‘The Certification Partner for Water Efficient Products’ for Climate Care Certified. Certification with Smart Approved WaterMark provides a Climate Care applicant with verification of water saving claims required in the application.

    Launch Offer

    As an exclusive offer, SPASA members who apply to Smart Approved WaterMark are able to get both Climate Care Certification and Smart Approved WaterMark for the cost of one (valid for 2 years).
