Suction Fitting Standards Rule Adoption

On March 22, 2022, the Department of Health adopted revisions to WAC 246-260-010 and WAC 246-262-010 to add the new suction outlet fitting assemblies (SOFA) standard. The revisions become effective April 22, 2022.

As a result of the adoption pool owners and operators can now replace SOFAs that meet the new standard ANSI/APSP/ICC-16 2017 or SOFAs that meet the old standard ANSI/APSP-16 2011.
