Everyone’s always asking me …”What’s the Hot, New pool product this year?” Usually, 1 or 2 products come quickly to mind. This year we’ve added a ton of new products, so many that I had a hard time choosing the winners for this list.
With long deliberation, arguing the merits of which new pool products really delivered something new (and hot), and which were only improvements or slight changes to an existing idea, we have our winners. So, for 2012, may I introduce to you…
Hot New Pool Products!
The first product is not really a product, or is it? We worked closely with the test strip manufacturer who pioneered smart phone water testing apps to create our own Pool Test App! Our Basic app allows you to manually enter and analyze your pool water test results. The Enhanced app allows photometric scanning of special test strips. Stores test history, provides treatment recommendations and access to the InTheSwim pool water Problem Solver.
Introducing Instant Liquid Chlorine. This new concentrated, crystallized liquid chlorine formula is easy to ship, and makes instant liquid chlorine when the powder is poured into the pool. If you enjoy the power of liquid chlorine in your pool, we’ve just made it a whole lot easier to buy. Instant Liquid Chlorine is sold in convenient 4-packs.
Pool Rx is a new member of our Chlorine-Free line of pool chemicals. If you’re familiar with our other mineral purification systems, like Frog or Nature2, then you can understand the magic of copper and silver ions in your pool water. Simply drop it in the skimmer, and the minerals do half the work of sanitizing your pool, allowing you to reduce your chlorine levels to an unnoticeable 0.5ppm. Pool Rx now has Zinc added for Salt Pools; the zinc tablet acts as a sacrificial anode.
Solar Globe pool chlorinator is decorative and functional! Holds small or large chlorine or bromine tablets in the bottom adjustable dispenser. At night, the Solar Globe chlorinator glows softly, adding a cool glowing orb to the pool. The rechargeable solar battery inside turns on at dusk and off at dawn. Solar powered floating pool chlorinator is definitely Hot!
One for the kids! Pool Petz are lovable soft plush toys that float. Big enough to ride on, Pool Petz are filled with EPS beads, which are super-light, super-buoyant and quick drying. Kids love Pool Petz, and having one of two in your pool will give hours of play. Dries fast; no worries when they want to bring their Pool Petz inside after a long day of swimming together. Shark is 42″ long, Fish is 37″, Turtle is 39″.
FilterGlass is a replacement filter media for sand pool filters made of recycled glass. Filters to an incredibly small 2 microns, FilterGlass is up to 50x more efficient than regular #20 Silica Sand. In addition to this, because it’s lighter than pool filter sand, you can use 20% less. If you want your sand filter to perform at the micron level of a DE filter, try FilterGlass.
