Our strategy involves the Water Neutral Pool program, communications on responsible water/energy use and a pool-water donation program.
Pools and spas add significant social value to our communities and are an iconic feature of the Australian way of life. We are seeing ever-growing numbers of pool & spa owners adopting 'water-wise' behaviour by installing pool covers, top-up water tanks, water reducing filters, etc.
There are many steps pool & spa owners can take to preserve our most precious resource. Please take the time to review the below information and that contained in our Pool & Spa Book.
SPASA Victoria (now MPBAA) launched the Water Neutral Pool program in 2008. A Water Neutral Pool is one that creates a new standard for swimming pools, it utilises both water saving and water harvesting devices to ensure that it is water-wise.
Purchasing a new pool that is Water Neutral, or retro-fitting an existing pool, will generate real cost savings through reduced chemical, water and energy use. MPBAA strongly encourages all Victorian pool-owners to adopt this new standard.
MPBAA receives National industry recognition
