ELIZABETH, NJ (January 16, 2012) - Hayward's line of CAT Controller technology-based chemical automation systems have long been recognized as the leader in water chemistry control systems. As part of a commitment to product quality, performance and protection of public health and safety, Hayward has taken the initiative to have its Chemical Controller lines submitted to the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) for testing. Hayward is now pleased to announce that the entire CAT and HCC Chemical Controller product lines have passed through NSF testing and are now listed with the NSF/ANSI Standard 50 for automated chemical controllers.

The purpose of NSF/ANSI Standard 50 (NSF 50) is to establish minimum requirements for materials, design, construction and performance of products integral to the water circulation systems of residential and public bodies of recreational water. Customers can invest in Hayward's line of chemical automation systems with peace of mind and confidence that the products have passed the rigorous test criteria demanded by many of the U.S. states that specifically require compliance or third-party certification of circulation system components to NSF Standard 50.

According to Hayward Commercial General Manager Patrick Sweeney, "Hayward continually strives to deliver the latest in pool product technology that contributes to safe and healthy recreational water, enhance the bathing experience while reducing maintenance and operational costs. Putting our controllers through NSF testing procedures proves that Hayward is always striving for the best."
