If you own or manage a swimming pool or spa you should ensure that it is managed in accordance with the Health and Safety at Work, etc. Act 1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations.
Guidance is available in the Health and Safety Executive publication Managing health and safety in swimming pools.
The Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group (PWTAG) an independent, non-commercial members organisation dedicated to raising standards in swimming pool water treatment also produce a book Swimming Pool water: treatment and quality standards for pools and spas (PWTAG 2009).
In addition PWTAG have published a Code of Practice (CoP) which is based substantially on their book. The CoP provides a practical summary of the recommendations and guidelines in the book, but also a specific charter to which pool operators can adhere and against which their operation can be evaluated.
