United Pool & Spa Association (UPSA) was chartered in 1983 as a non-profit trade association. It was originally organized to serve the interests of commercial pool contractors and their associates, suppliers, and the engineers that design public pools. In recent years UPSA has expanded its membership to welcome solid residential swimming pool builders, as well as swimming pool service contractors, particularly those serving the commercial and public pool trade.
UPSA exists to create and maintain a better business environment for the members. The association is active in government agency liaison and oversight, safety promotion, education and providing networking opportunities for all members.
UPSA will continue to seek new and creative solutions to industry challenges. By attracting those who appreciate our approach, which uses a non-confrontational and consensus building style, we expect modest, but controlled growth.
UPSA is registered with the Florida Construction Industry Licensing Board as a CE Course provider. Our courses are non-commercialized and inexpensive. They are offered to the trade at our Annual Meeting and Expo and at seminars and workshops regularly scheduled in major metropolitan markets throughout the state.
