Tops-In-Trucks Award

What’s this awards program all about?

The Florida Swimming Pool Association Tops-in-Trucks Awards Program is a new FSPA program to recognize outstanding fleet vehicle graphics and excellent modifications of service and repair trucks. It is our way of recognizing Florida Pool Pros who are leading the way everyday as they serve customers throughout Florida. Hopefully it encourages others to follow great examples that can increase brand recognition, work efficiency and positively affect sales and the image of pool professionals.
