    The spa and hot tub industry is currently expanding into States which do not have adequate regulations to control the health and safety features of these facilities. Epidemiologic evidence has shown that spas and hot tubs can be of significant public health concern if they are not properly designed, operated and maintained.

    This publication has been prepared to assist State and local health agencies develop practical spa and hot tub safety and health regulations. These guidelines, along with the appropriate inspection and enforcement procedures, should serve as the foundation for the establishment of practical regulatory programs. Modifications to the technical content of the guidelines may be necessary to meet the particular needs of a State or local agency.

    April 1981, revised January 1985.
