Space Coast Chapter

Space Coast   
Chapter President: Eva Adcock
State office: (866) 930-3772

Some builders in the Space Coast Chapter have recently had trouble with inspectors in our county who are not accepting certain floating alarms.  The Florida Statutes and Florida Building Code specify that floating pool alarms must meet the objective standards set under ASTM F2208 and some inspectors are not accepting these results.  This can have serious consequences, since the alarm is an integral part of a pool passing final inspection.  FSPA Government Affairs Manager Dallas Thiesen took up this cause for us recently and arose successfully. 

Having Dallas and the rest of his team is a meaningful member benefit, especially when we have these kind of issues come up.  When things clear up a bit, your Space Coast Chapter will be having an event to meet the government relations team and support them financially.  This team makes sure that we are aggressive in our knowledge about legislation that can positively or negatively affect our industry.  It’s also important to remember that they can help us with issues that arise in our everyday problems as well.  If you have any issues, feel free to call Eva Adcock, your Space Coast President, or the state office directly.
