PROPISCINES - your passport to peace of mind

Since buying a swimming pool is a serious business, the French Federation of Swimming Pool Professionals introduced the ProPiscines certification and launched a collective campaign to promote true, ProPiscines-certified swimming pool professionals, providing you with all the assurances you need for your project.

"We recommend asking for this certification", which is held by Piscinelle.

Propiscines certification is solely authorised by the FPP (French Federation of Swimming Pool Professionals) and guarantees a higher level of professionalism and expertise than that required for Federation membership alone.
Quality certification aimed at helping consumers find a reliable partner for their projects.

In concrete terms, to qualify for Propiscines certification, professionals need to have traded for over 3 years, attend regular training, and meet a number of criteria regarding their status as swimming pool specialists. They are also required to honour pledges on the provision of information and services to customers. As such, Propiscines-certified professionals must:

1. act in a respectful way, with the focus on their relationship with customers.
2. issue customers with the Charter of Pledges, so they know what they can expect from their swimming pool professional.
3. apply best practice for the swimming pool industry.
4. use declared, regularly trained staff.
5. be a trained professional who regularly keeps abreast of technical and regulatory developments in the swimming pool industry.
6. hold professional indemnity insurance and decennial liability insurance for swimming pool construction (if involved in building).
7. ensure that customers sign a job sign-off sheet at the end of projects, triggering legal guarantees, in particular decennial liability insurance.
8. provide customers with the technical note on safety, which includes details of protective systems and guidance on prevention.
9. instruct customers on how to operate, maintain and treat their swimming pool water, and provide them with a user guide.
10. act responsibly to protect the environment (particularly by adopting water and energy saving methods based on the recommendations of the FPP Sustainable Development Committee).
