The Texas Pool & Spa Coalition protects the interests of Texas pool and spa industry professionals and the consumer through education and advocacy, while promoting superior standards of safety and efficiency. By uniting lawmakers and industry, they work to bring about effective and sustainable change. The TPSC coalition partners include: The Aquatic Professionals Education Council (APEC), the Pool & Hot Tub Alliance (PHTA), formerly The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP) and the National Swimming Pool Foundation (NSPF), and The Independent Pool and Spa Service Association (IPSSA).


APEC, now TPSC, was established in November of 2004 by a small group of pool service professionals with the objective to safeguard, improve and enhance the swimming pool and spa business climate in Texas. IPSSA, who has been standing by the side of APEC for years, is the world’s largest pool service industry organization. APEC members also


included pool builders, many who were members of what was The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP). The Coalition Works to


 Represent Texas pool and spa professionals and consumers at the state and local level.  Proactively monitor legislative intent, examine and track bills to keep members up to date on critical industry issues.


 Testify before local governmental entities, and state legislative and regulatory bodies, on behalf of members and the industry.


 Maintain a constant presence at Texas legislature and state regulatory agency meetings. Hot Items Impacting Your Livelihood


 Prolonged negotiations in 2018 with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) led to a positive clarification to the scope of work of Texas Residential Appliance Installer License (RAIL) holders that ensure they are


now fully recognized to perform common pool-related services without the threat of TDLR violations.


 House Bill 2858, signed by Governor Abbott June 14, 2019, is a top priority bill which adopted the International Swimming Pool and Spa Code (ISPSC), 2018 edition, as the municipal swimming pool and spa code in Texas. A municipality may establish procedures for: (1) adoption of local amendments to the ISPSC, and (2) the administration and enforcement of the ISPSC. In addition, a municipality may review and adopt amendments made by the International Code Council to the ISPSC after May 1, 2019. HB 2858 takes effect September 1, 2020. To date, we have 76 current Texas ISPSC adoptions.


 During the 2019 legislation session, 13 bills were being monitored and acted on that effect the pool and spa industry and that TPSC continues to monitor local ordinances and regulations year round. In the previous eight legislative sessions, numerous bills were proactively mitigated to prevent unnecessary burdens on consumers and


the pool industry.


 Education has long been the Coalition’s key element. Through education, TPSC raises the competency bar of industry professionals and further enhances swimming pool and spa safety. Education venues for the ISPSC Code application and compliance are being set-up for both industry professionals and code officials.
