Water Neutral PoolINTRODUCTION: SPASA Victoria has embarked on a significant sustainability campaign to guarantee a long-term future for pools & spas in Victoria. 

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.

The Water Neutral Pool programwater neutral pool logo

SPASA Victoria  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. SPASA Victoria strongly encourages all Victorian pool-owners to adopt this new standard.
