The Journal of the Swimming Pool and Spa Industry is a peer-reviewed research and educational journal for those interested in sharing technical data and for those wishing to expand their knowledge of swimming pool chemistry and other aspects of aquatics, facility maintenance, and the evaluation of new products.
The JSPSI was published originally from 1995 to 2004, in hard copy and available by subscription. Those issues (Volumes 1 through 5) are now being provided here online, together with later intermittent issues released as articles are presented and available.
