The Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC) is taking the national (and international) pool code world by storm. It is the ONLY peer-written and regularly peer-reviewed code in existence and is being adopted as a best practice pool code or primary Pool Code all around the US and beyond. During the 2017 MAHC conference there were 168 new suggestions to make the best even better, and those were voted on by the CMAHC (industry folks like you and us that review and get to vote on all changes).
Now just months later, we are proud to announce the release of the 3rd edition of the MAHC which incorporates 115 of the 168 suggestions made. There was also an update to the MAHC Annex - a parallel document that provides all the technical details, formulas, and other justifications behind the code excerpts. Here is a quick synopsis of the changes for your reference.
Why is the MAHC so unique? Well if you assemble hundreds of the brightest minds in the pool industry including health department officials, academia, manufacturers, experienced pool contractors, engineers, and service companies… all with thousands of years of field experience, and you coordinate an effort to write the “best of the best” codes…. the results are going to be great!
Then, add a periodic review with a formal tabulated vote from hundreds of voting members of the CMAHC, and the best continually gets better.
CES strongly endorses the MAHC and uses it as a best practice reference when working within Florida, as we are lucky to have one of the better health codes in the US. When we are working outside the state and in the islands - where the codes aren’t as strong - we rely almost completely on the MAHC to help guide our equipment designs and operational guidelines.
