The Council for Model Aquatic Health Code (CMAHC) Certifies VivoAquatics for Optimal Safety Standards of its Industry Leading Aquatic Management Platform
MONROVIA, CA – VivoAquatics, the leader in providing innovative and sustainable aquatic solutions, has achieved Council for the Model Aquatic Health Code (CMAHC) Certification for CDC safety standards for its aquatic management platform. Core to this platform is VivoPoint, a smart technology program that connects commercial pools, spas, and water features to chemical automation and real-time monitoring. VivoAquatics’ program delivers increased guest safety while decreasing operating and capital costs for leading hospitality, fitness, and real estate brands, such as MGM Resorts International, Marriott, The Irvine Company, and In-Shape Fitness.
Launched in 2018, the CMAHC certification program helps educate the public about products and services that meet the strict, science-based standards in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC). If followed, the guidance in the MAHC helps reduce the risk for disease outbreaks, drownings, and chemical injuries at public aquatic facilities. The CMAHC awards certification to services or products that comply with the relevant or applicable standards in the latest MAHC edition.
“At VivoAquatics, we understand the importance of compliance within the Model Aquatic Health Code that promotes CDC safety standards,” said Willan Johnson, CEO, VivoAquatics. “Our clients are among the leading global brands. They work tirelessly to provide their guests with an amazing and safe experience. We look forward to working with our partners and clients to provide the IoT platform, predictive analytics, and associated services to help them deliver high quality water to exceed guest expectations while navigating the many challenges of regulatory compliance, cost management, and staff training.”
VivoAquatics specializes in automation and insights for facility operators and owners across hospitality, fitness, municipalities, and real estate. Through its smart technology platform, VivoAquatics monitors and manages pools, spas, and water features from any device, anywhere – keeping guests safe, ensuring efficient staff, and providing peace of mind and operational control for operators and owners. VivoAquatics’ proprietary safety score provides a quick read on the percent of the time the bodies of water are compliant with the CDC’s strict health standards in the Model Aquatic Health Code. Alerts are sent if out of the range, so issues can be resolved quickly, ensuring aquatics are aligned with CDC safety standards.
CMAHC certification is not a single occurrence. Rather, the intent is to build a long-term quality control partnership. After initial certification, the CMAHC re-evaluates each certified service or product annually to ensure it continues to meet the same high standards required in the MAHC to maintain certification. Services or products that earn a CMAHC certification are said to be “CMAHC certified” and may display the CMAHC certification emblem to demonstrate they have been evaluated for conformance with the requirements in the latest MAHC edition.
VivoAquatics’s smart and connected technology platform automates pools, spas, and water features to provide real-time chemical management, monitoring, and work-flow tools that deliver the safest and most appealing water for guests in a more sustainable and cost-effective way. The platform is the center of the aquatics program which also includes expert support, training, certification, and procurement optimization. VivoAquatics partners with the world’s leading hospitality, real estate, and fitness brands to help manage their water that is enjoyed by millions of guests each including Ritz Carlton, Marriott, 1Hotels, MGM Resorts International, Westgate, W Hotel, The Irvine Company, In-Shape Fitness and many more.

The Council for the Model Aquatic Health Code (CMAHC) was created to manage updates to, and promote voluntary adoption of, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC), the only all-inclusive national model pool code. The MAHC is kept sustainable, current, and complete because the people who use it also research, develop, discuss, and vote on proposed changes through membership in the CMAHC. The CMAHC submits proposed changes to CDC as advice on how the MAHC needs to change to keep up with the latest science and best practices. Throughout the year, CMAHC staff educate local and state authorities, aquatic facility owners and operators, designers and builders, manufacturers, and suppliers about the MAHC and its potential to ensure a healthy and safe swimming experience for everyone.
