Our Fish Spa Hygiene Standards are based on the Fish Spa guidance, issued on August 2011 by the Chief Executives of the Chartered Institute of the Environmental Health of the United Kingdom and the Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland. It has been agreed on by the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety in Ireland and Public Health in Wales and has set an example to all other European countries.

Our Fish Spa Animal Welfare Standards are based on the most recent Animal Welfare Act by the Federation of British Aquatic Societies and can be taken as an example to all Aboutother European countries.

The different techniques that are used to filter and condition the water of the fish spas are CE-certified and an official testing report of the filtration, safety and the power use of the fish spa is included. Read more about bio- filtering.
