Midwest Chapter of the APSP

Welcome to the APSP (Association of Pool and Spa Professionals) Midwest Chapter's page. 

The Midwest Chapter of the APSP is a chapter made up from areas within Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin.  Please visit our Midwest Chapter website at www.APSPMidwest.org for information on our local chapter, including our local awards programs.

The APSP is a national association made up of independent manufacturers, distributors, swimming pool builders, retailers, and service companies working together to make the swimming pool and spa industry better.

Why should I do business with an APSP member?

Perhaps you are looking for a retail store to shop in, or you are considering the purchase of a spa or inground swimming pool. Maybe you're in need of a service company to take care of your pool. Whatever the case, an APSP member company has the professional staff to accommodate your needs. The member companies of APSP voluntarily hold themselves accountable to meet the national standards set by our industry.  To find a local APSP member from our Midwest Chapter, please visit www.apspmidwest.org/locate-a-pro.
