CNA SPLASHes Into Texas

February 10, 2011

Most of us in Texas have ice in our pools this week, which makes this information more timely than you might think. SPLASH – the Spa & Pool Contractors Program from CNA – has been expanded into the Texas middle market.

The SPLASH program offers insurance coverage for a variety of customers including pool plasters, installers and builders of swimming pools, spas and hot tubs, and for service, maintenance and repair work (like cleaning, resurfacing, winterizing, etc.) done exlcusively for the swimming pool and hot tub industry. Both wholesale and retail operations that meet the requirements are eligible under the new Middle Market program.

Recently, the Northeast Spa and Pool Association (NESPA), an organization with more than fifty years’ history of safety education for its members, endorsed CNA. The insurer is working with NESPA to create specialized risk control programs that specifically address the needs of the swimming pool and hot tub industry.

CNA has also been providing support – including educational programs and employee training – to organizations such as the NESPA Foundation, the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP) and the Florida Swimming Pool Association (FSPA).
