The Chapter meeting in February, sponsored by Pentair, had another great turnout with 25 attendees! Thank you so much to all who attended and who continue to promote all the great things the Florida Gulf Coast Chapter is doing. It is awesome to see new members, past members, and future members at every meeting! We so appreciate Kevin Burns and Nestor Reyes for sponsoring the February meeting and for donating a UV BIOSHIELD which our new Board Member Michele Moser, Sapphire Pools, won! For those who missed this meeting, please check out our Facebook page for more information provided by Pentair!

In March we welcomed the famous Jim Acord, AquaCal AutoPilot, Inc., who gave a great, detailed presentation on advantages and disadvantages of heat pumps, how to properly size a heat pump, and upcoming trends and innovations. Again, we hosted new faces, thanks to all who keep bringing guests, and also welcomed our new member, Wave 6 Pools! Thanks again to Jim and AquaCal AutoPilot, Inc. for their sponsorship!

The next Chapter Meeting is April 14 and is sponsored by Aqua Leaks. We are excited to hear from Will from Aqua Leaks will be discussing how to detect a leak, ways to refer, and how to understand what creates leaks so you are better informed when your customers ask you what’s going on! As always, our Chapter meetings take place the second Wednesday of the month from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at Famous Dave’s, 12148 S Cleveland Ave. First-time guest’s dinners are paid from the Chapter and we look forward to seeing everyone on April 14!
