PASCAA & SPASA Australia to Unite

The Pool and Spa Association of Australia (SPASA) and the Pool and Spa Cover Association of Australia (PASCAA) are merging. In an exciting move, this merger will increase resources and unify deliverables to all areas of the swimming pool industry for PR and advocacy to consumers, regulators and everyone that is even remotely connected to the swimming pool and spa industry.

Derek Prince, Vice President of PASCAA, says, “PASCAA was formed to protect consumers and the industry from substandard products before the incorporation of SPASA Australia. After the formation of PASCAA and the introduction of minimum standards for Australian fit for purpose pool covers, Smart Approved Watermark adopted the PASCAA testing methods for minimum standards, a great outcome for industry and consumers alike.”

History

With the droughts in the early 2000’s governments and water bodies around Australia brought in regulation and, in some places, rebates on pool covers that were Smart Approved Watermarked. Some swimming pool covers were being sold as cheap as possible, regardless of their quality, because pool owners were needed to stop evaporation. However, the swimming pool industry knows that a poor quality pool cover simply does not last. We were hearing regular stories of pool covers lasting merely months. In the beginning, Smart Approved Watermark did not understand completely what a fit for purpose pool cover was. With no nationally incorporated SPASA organisation that could lobby government or Smart Approved Watermark, the Pool Cover industry formed our own nationally incorporated Association so we could engage and influence governments and Smart Approved Watermark.

Then, we fast forward a few years to see the formation of a nationally incorporated SPASA Australia that amalgamated most states.

SPASA Australia then adopted PASCAA minimum standards as the benchmark for a fit for purpose pool cover in Australia.

PASCAA & SPASA Australia to Unite 1With the incorporation of SPASA Australia, PASCAA like many other industry bodies was keen to see a unified industry body however felt that SPASA Australia needed to have more than a plan, they needed to put ‘runs on the board’ to show that they truly were the peak national industry body for the whole industry not only for builders like SPASA of old, but as a Swimming Pool Industry advocate for builders, retail, service and suppliers.

We were all hoping to see a SPASA for the industry as a whole. PASCAA has been working alongside SPASA Australia for a few years now. With current agendas of the Heating Sector Committee, Standards Australia proposals along with the advocacy activity PASCAA believe that SPASA Australia has exceeded their plans and the time is right for all in our industry to unite under one national SPASA Australia.

 

PASCAA is proud to be that latest merger with SPASA Australia and look forward to further working under the SPASA Australia brand.
