Do you know what you’re buying?

If efficiency, sustainability and innovation matter to you, opt for a Climate Care Certified product or service when considering alternatives.

The Climate Care Certification (CCC) Program was officially launched in 2018. An initiative of the Swimming Pool & Spa Association of Australia Ltd (SPASA), CCC is setting new efficiency and sustainability benchmarks for products, services and installations across the entire industry.

The program was developed to support, protect and promote the way the members of the swimming pool and spa industry operate and ensure we strive as a group for best practice sustainable solutions.

A 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

CCC Eligibility

CCC is a voluntary program, so you know that certified vendors are not only serious about the industry and the environment, they’re also committed to delivering sustainable choices and innovations that help you make informed purchasing decisions — decisions that reduce water and energy consumption and save you money.

The climate care certification program will continue to grow over time, with an ever-broadening range of products, systems and installations becoming certified. If you are looking at any of the following products or systems, visit the Climate Care Certified directory on the SPASA (www.spasa.com.au) website before making your choice:

  • Pool covers

  • Smart meters/controllers

  • Pool cleaners

  • Construction/installation/renovation of pool/spa

  • Retrofitting of products/systems to existing pool/spa.

  • Ensures claims being made have been verified by the peak industry body.
