How to Find the Right Pool Pro

So you’ve decided to make an addition to your household: your very own pool. You’re excited to have your own water oasis to relax, have friends over, or simply just play in. But first: where do you go to make this dream a reality?

You could just mindlessly enter questions into Google and see what comes up. Luckily the Florida Swimming Pool Association offers a search bar to find pool pros near you! Just enter your ZIP code and see for yourself.

What makes our database different than what Google finds? Our database is comprised solely of FSPA members. FSPA members agree to a code of ethics when they sign up. All members are carefully selected making sure their licenses are up to date. When you hire an FSPA member to do your pool you are guaranteed honest work and people.

Of course we encourage you to do your own research as well; you will be the one working with whichever company you choose. Some things to think about when choosing a pool contractor:

  • How long has their business been around? Do they have pictures of past work?
  • Check their social media. What do their reviews look like? What does their communication look like? Also check them on Yelp and BBB.
  • Are they licensed? Do they have their licenses listed? You can also search for their licenses on the Department of Business and Professional Regulation’s (DBPR) website.
