Certified Pool/Spa Operator Handbook, 2020.  The 2020 edition includes needed updates and additions that were provided by PHTA Instructors and industry experts throughout the past three years, since the last publication in 2014. 

In a rapidly evolving aquatic industry, PHTA strives to provide the latest and best information to aquatic professionals. Updating the Handbook, that is the resource guide for the CPOⓇ Certification course, is one way the non-profit accomplishes this goal. The 2020 Pool & Spa Operator Handbook is available for purchase now and will also be bundled with the purchase of the online Pool Operator Primer™ (POP™).

“Caring for pools and spas requires knowledge of chemistry, engineering, microbiology, physics, public health, regulations and more,” states Thomas Lachocki, Ph.D., CEO of PHTA. “We are able to provide new, relevant details in the handbook thanks to all who help us keep pace with these fast-changing technological and regulatory knowledge areas,” he concludes. 

General changes to the Handbook include updated text, charts, pictures, cover art, and acknowledgments. More specific changes include:

  • Updated Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC) information
  • Modified volume formula
  • Updated stats on CDC inspections 
  • New studies on crypto, norovirus outbreaks, treating crypto, and legionella stats
  • Disinfectant charts and active strength percentages
  • Modified breakpoint chlorination, potassium monopersulfate, and metallic algicides information and added a section on chloramine prevention
  • Updated recommended pool temperatures per the Red Cross
  • Added information about the expanding industry of Float Tanks
  • Updated CDC stats about drowning, data on the Virginia Graeme Baker Act, and added Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) text
  • Added information on Advanced Service Technician training

“We enable the swimming pool and spa industry to continue entrusting us with their training needs, by ensuring that our products are updated to industry standards with expert input from educators and leaders worldwide. Our products help keep pools safer, open, and efficient, encouraging people to live healthier lives,” states Rose Lyda, Product Development Manager.
