PHTCC Notes 

  • The pool and hot tub industry has been deemed a permissible business. While the retail locations can't be open, orders can be filled via phone calls or online, using curbside pick up and delivery.  Equipment servicing is also acceptable, provided technicians follow the COVID-19 safety protocols.

  • Services listed that can be interpreted as our industry, but need clarification,  are: 

  • Production, Processing and Manufacturing and the Supporting Supply Chains 

       Production, processing and supply chains of the manufacturing sector ​

  • The PHTCC is urging all in the Pool & Spa Industry to follow these public health guidelines and take a leadership role in significantly curtailing or shutting down non-essential operations for the next two (2) weeks. Beyond this period remains to be seen, however, it has been noted by some that we have had late starts to previous seasons due to weather, so something of such critical importance warrants a similar delay.

  • Pool & Hot Tub companies that remain open should have as their top priority the health and safety of all employees and customers. Any work undertaken should be primarily focused on proper pool & hot tub “maintenance” as it pertains to the prevention of additional infectious diseases through un-sanitized and non-operable pools.

  • Recognizing that each company must make its own operating decisions, the PHTCC recommends that companies should NOT be starting new build projects during the minimum 14-day period commencing on Tuesday, March 24 at 11:59 pm.”

  • Pool & Hot Tub companies that remain open must take extraordinary measures to protect employees, customers, and the general public.
