The Associated Swimming Pool Industries of Florida (ASPI). The ASPI is a local group of swimming pool builders, service companies, wholesale distributers, manufacturers and other related professionals. We have been serving the South Florida community for over 40 years. ASPI has spearheaded successful efforts to speed up plans processing and the issuing of permits and inspections. This has resulted in a saving of both time and expense to our industry and the consumer. We have also raised awareness of the proliferation of unlicensed, uninsured and unskilled individuals and have lobbied the Miami-Dade County Commission to hire additional enforcement personnel. ASPI holds its meetings at the Piccadilly Cafeteria located at 8301 W Flagler Street in Miami, during which time all issues and concerns relating to our industry are addressed. These meetings include a free dinner, expert guest speakers, and more. They are open to all members and associates. All licensed pool professionals are invited to attend. ASPI also provides sponsorship of a college scholarship fund to our members and families who qualify. We also offer a binding arbitration clause in our contract which settles disputes without court costs and attorneys fees. ASPI publishes a monthly newsletter called "The Pipeline." It contains the information on the upcoming meeting, information about the pool industry, columns about pool technology, and photos of our past meeting or event. The October 2012 Pipeline Pipeline issue is available for download (1.8 mb).

Board of Directors vote to terminate ASPI
For the past three years, ASPI has been in hibernation. Times have changed and there does not appear to an active membership or volunteers to do the work necessary for us to continue. The ASPI Board of Directors met on Tuesday, October 13, 2015. After considering our options, a vote was taken to disband ASPI. We have been in existence for 45 years this month. The first gathering to start the organziation was in October 1970. We have had a good run and done a lot to promote the pool industry and work with governmental bodies.
