1.2 Related Standards Since the scope of this Standard is directly related to suction fittings, it is important to mention that the fittings themselves represent only one portion of the suc- tion entrapment scenario. Several other standards, including but not limited to, ANSI/NSPI-1, -2, -3, -4, -5, -6, and -8, ANSI/IAF-9, as well as ASME A112.19.17, and ASTM F 2387-04, as outlined in para. 1.4, should be consulted so as to provide coverage for the various other aspects of this potential hazard in swimming pools, wading pools, spas, and hot tubs. 1.3 Units of Measurement When values are stated in U.S. Customary units and in the International System of Units (SI), the values stated in U.S. Customary units shall be considered as the standard.
