Member Testimonials


“Thank you FSPA for the generous new member benifit called “5 Star Impression” that is now included in my membership dues at no additional charge. My clients were surprised when they received a confirmation email reminding them of our apointment the next day. They were also able to see a photo of me and my professional biography in preparing for our visit. I arrived with my ID badge on! Love it!!!!!!!!”   – Rich Tarricone, Aquatic Pool Systems LLC

“The other day I went to renew a prescription and was told my insurance would not cover this drug at this time. The price for the non generic drug was$600.00 and the generic was $400.00. With the FSPA prescription card I was able the get the prescription for the generic drug for less than $48.00. Even the pharmacist was surprised at this price. Thanks for this great member benefit.” -Alan Cooper, Alan Cooper Consulting


“The FSPA is such a great resource for pool owners looking for information!” -Aaron Simon, Harrimans Solar


“We received our FSPA Saving Center card in the mail the beginning of this week. I am a frequent Office Depot shopper so I thought I would give it a try. On Tuesday I needed to have some copies made. The cost before the Saving Center discount was $28.89. After the discount was applied my cost was $7.49. That is a savings of $21.40! Today I needed to ship a package FedEx. The cost before the Saving Center discount was $12.39. After the discount was applied my cost was $0.24. That is a savings of $12.15. So far this week I have saved $33.55 just by using our new FSPA Saving Center discount card. Thank you for this great new member benefit!”  -Malinda Howard, V.P., Rick’s Pool Service, Inc.
