About SPASA

The Swimming Pool & Spa Association of Australia Ltd (SPASA Australia) is a non-profit industry association dedicated to maintaining and improving standards for the benefit of all - consumers, builders, retailers, service technicians and suppliers.

SPASA Australia operates through regional offices such as SPASA Qld.

There are many issues, affecting the industry and consumers alike, that are either impossible or too great for any one business or person to handle effectively. This is why the industry has formed a mutually beneficial, co-operative and non-profit trade association.

Self-regulation, self-discipline, and self-assessment of our Members, a strict Code of Ethics and the adoption of various codes of practice has helped the association reach a point where its members are perceived within the marketplace to have an image that promotes confidence to consumers that they will receive a quality product or service at a reasonable price. 

SPASA has had a major influence in areas such as pool safety, fencing, chemical packaging & storage, industry standards, sales tax, and consumer legislation. 

SPASA works toward keeping its members well informed, deals with government and other centres of influence on their behalf, and provides meaningful information and services to consumers that deal with its members.

SPASA has given its members a consumer credibility and confidence in the marketplace that others simply do not have.
