Nov. 2019 Chapter News

Thank you so much to Zodiac for sponsoring our Chapter meeting in October. Kyle Marshall, Zodiac, discussed how to maximize the savings and minimize the headaches of variable-speed pumps, the difference between programming them through controls for pump and the advantages of automation, how to prevent GFCI issues with variable-speed pumps, and the salt system and variable-speed pump dilemma. Thanks, Kyle! We know you weren’t feeling 100% but you gave a 100% presentation! We appreciate you!

We are excited to have two new volunteers who will serve on our Board of Directors in 2020. We appreciate each of our Directors for stepping up and leading us in 2020. There will be a Board retreat scheduled soon to discuss goals and budgets. If you want to serve on a committee or contribute feedback, please let one of our Board members know: Jerry Mason, HornerXpress; Wayne Moomjian, Custom Pools by Design; David Griffiths, Insurance by Ken Brown; Les Williams, Aloha Pools & Spa; Jeff Adams, Tri-City Pools; and Randy Bourbeau, Aquatic Pool Repair.

We also want to express our deep gratitude for Michelle Graham Vamvakaris, Siesta Pebble, Inc., for leading the Chapter as the president this past year. We sincerely appreciate your commitment to the pool industry and your local members. We look forward to many more years!
