Help Fishin Franks Rebuild

Frank said he appreciates everyone's support it's been a long day and he just needs to get through rest of day without calls and texts and needs some time. If everyone could refrain from contacting him directly right now he would appreciate it. He is going to try and get on Facebook tomorrow and provide an update. Let's wait until he decides how to handle things before moving forward. The support has been amazing though and it's great to know that whatever he needs this community is ready to help.

We currently have over 60+ businesses ready to help provide services from plumbing, electrical, lighting, painting, web design, security, carpentry, pumps and filters, insulation, banners and signs, graphic design, HVAC, bait, labor, etc. We have people with freezers and businesses ready to provide items to help re-stock. And a whole lot more ready to help! We have several fundraisers as well as gofundme pages where people are helping as well.

Messina Pools Delivers

Messina pools is on the verge becoming a Southwest Florida powerhouse name in the pool industry. I'm only assuming that Mike Messina (owner) company has been around a little less than 10 years based on a few people that I've spoken to. I have not interviewed Mesina Pools owner and he has not asked me to write anything.

Our realtor (Chad Vogt) told me that it's a really nice house in a nice area but the pool will definately need to be redone. Our realtor said that he knew his fair share of pool people but if it was his pool, he would have Messina Pools do the job. Now I know why his pool business is growing so rapidly with now over 250 clients in just a few years. He's honest, a Godly man of his word and his workmanship shows for itself.

Mike Messina of Messina Pools gave my damage pool a much needed makeover. I had the pleasurable opportunity to watch his crew tear down the old pool. His plan was to resurface, install new tiles and switched the pool to saltwater. Bye Bye to my algae sea green color and hello to our crsip and clear baby blue waters.

Sparkling and crystal clear saltwater pool now. 

Thank you Mr. Messina for such a wonderful job.
