A note from Jennifer Hatfield, FSPA’s Government Relations Consultant:

FSPA worked a year and a half on behalf of our members to ensure this critical issue [pool electrical rule] was resolved in a manner so our members could continue doing the work they have done for decades.  Had it gone the other way, all members would be looking at the prospect of having to hire an electrician when changing out a pool light, pool pump, etc.  Consider how much that would change your business model and the cost to your business, and when doing so think about how important the FSPA Government Relations Program is to YOUR business.  But don’t just think, ACT by supporting our Pool Industry Political Action Committee PIPAC – if this rule had not been adopted it would be up to the Legislature to make the final decision and ultimately this issue or another one could come up in the future.  FSPA needs to be prepared to fight these battles and that means contributing to legislative campaigns and building relationships with House and Senate members, but we cannot do that without monetary support from the pool & spa industry.  Help us PROTECT you by donating to PIPAC TODAY!
