NSF Certifies Pump Maker to ANSI Standard
NSF International announced on Wednesday (April 1) that AquaPRO Systems is the first pump manufacturer to receive certification to both NSF/ANSI Standard 50 – Equipment for Swimming Pools, Spas, Hot Tubs and Other Recreational Water Facilities and ANSI/UL 1081 – Standard for Swimming Pool Pumps, Filters, and Chlorinators from NSF.
Certification to NSF Standard 50 and UL 1081 for pool pumps verifies compliance with the American National Standards for these products, which establish performance and safety requirements, according to a news release.
“AquaPRO Systems’ decision to bundle both NSF 50 and UL 1081 certifications to one accredited certification organization, NSF, which is accepted by regulators in the pool and spa industry, was a strategic move for us. It significantly reduced our time to market and total certification cost,” said Joe Mauro, president of Wayne Water Systems, d/b/a AquaPRO Systems.
NSF services for pumps include certification to NSF Standard 50 and UL 1081 along with California Energy Commission and sound emissions testing. Ongoing compliance is verified through periodic facility inspections and retesting.
“We are proud to provide proactive manufacturers, such as AquaPRO Systems, the combined testing and certification services they need to demonstrate their commitment to producing safer, quality products,” said Dave Purkiss, general manager, NSF International Water Treatment and Distribution Systems. “Obtaining certification is important because it helps consumers select recreational water products that have been tested and proven to meet national standards.”
