The Florida Swimming Pool Association’s 2020 Design Award winners were recognized in February at the annual Awards and Welcome Reception held during the Everything Under the Sun Expo.

The annual FSPA Design Awards allows members to enter their pools, spas and water features for judging on workmanship, soundness of design, beauty, practicality and safety. The eight Florida pool builders to win awards were Van Kirk & Sons Pools & Spas, Ike’s Carter Pool Companies, Aquatech Pools GC, Inc., Sunsational Pools, and Spas, Inc., Blue Fin Builders, Inc., American Pools & Spas, Inc., Almar Jackson Pools, Inc. and CM Custom Pool Designs.

Awards of Gold, Silver, Bronze and Award of Merit may be granted in each of the 20 categories. Judges do not have to recognize any entries in a category if they deem that no entries merit an award. An overall Best of Show award may also be granted, as well as special awards for exceptional achievement (i.e. Technical Achievement). Categories are based on square footage and features. Each winner received a plaque with a color print of the winning entry and a winner’s badge to use on their website.
