What is the World of Recreational Water Foundation?

The World of Recreational Water (WRW) Foundation is an international nonprofit foundation that, in collaboration with the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP), advances and fosters responsible use of scarce water resources and represents, defends, and promotes the sustainable use of recreational water. Guided by science, WRW (a 501(c) (3) organization) promotes emerging technologies, supports research into the conservation and energy efficient use of recreational water, and underwrites education and training to advance sustainable and safe recreational water environments and practices for pools, spas and hot tubs worldwide.

  • WRW believes that recreational water is a vital and valuable resource that must be protected and used responsibly.
  • WRW believes that we have an obligation to develop and use technologies and promote practices that support water conversation and the sustainable use of recreational water.
  • WRW believes that we must be guided by science in our efforts to achieve our goals.
  • WRW believes that we cannot do this alone and that industry, government, and the public must all be involved in this effort to ensure the safety, conversation, and sustainability of recreational water.
