The Industry Showcase 2021

5 G 1120 Aq Pentair Sm

While it seemed that much of our world came to a staggering halt this year, the pool and spa industry saw huge growth and brought tens of thousands of new customers into the leisure aquatic lifestyle.

The onset of the pandemic had consumers stuck at home in search of ways to invest in the "staycation" potential of their own yards. This spark propelled pool and hot tub sales forward, sending manufacturers and retailers spinning to keep up with unprecedented sales.

However, the same pandemic that drove sales to new heights drove many trade shows to close their doors or convert to a virtual format. And as we prepare for 2021, their crucial mission is more important than ever β€” that is, to communicate and connect.

In the Industry Showcase 2021, AQUA has created a new space to do just that. We're excited to offer a hub of content from pool and spa manufacturers across the country. It is a space for manufacturers to list new products, share company news and offer insight about their plans for the upcoming year.

We powered through 2020 with strength and success, and we have every reason to believe 2021 will be just as spectacular for pools and spas. On the following pages, get equipped with the industry's current happenings and get excited about what's to come.

Layering sanitation tools maximizes pool enjoyment. ChemCheck Water Quality Monitoring System helps by monitoring pH, sanitizer performance and temperature, displaying status and alerts in real time so pool owners can catch water quality changes before they become problems. ChemCheck works through the Pentair Home App, providing convenience and peace of mind.

Homeowners are turning to their backyards more than ever as waterparks and other typically crowded recreational facilities close or greatly limit access and crowd size. People are redirecting their travel budgets to home and pool improvements. Pentair continues to offer the innovative and reliable products needed to keep pool and spa water sparkling clean and ready to enjoy.

Also, Pentair recently acquired A&A Manufacturing, a leading developer of innovative, time-saving and eco-conscious solutions for pool cleaning and circulation. The addition of A&A Manufacturing's automatic circulation and self-cleaning systems, purification solutions and water features further expands Pentair's pool and spa equipment offerings.

Pentair will continue to educate the industry on the impact of the new Department of Energy regulations for pool pump efficiency, which will go into effect in July of 2021. All pumps manufactured or imported for use in the U.S. starting July 19, 2021 will need to meet the new standards. Most single-speed pumps on the market today will become obsolete.

There has been increasing demand for pool and spa products, as well as supply challenges for the whole industry due to COVID. The company is working closely to identify reputable secondary and tertiary component makers to broaden its supply chain and develop multiple backups. This will keep the company up and running as industry demand expands.

Since CMP acquired DEL Ozone and other sanitizer makers, it's been the company's desire to take the next leap in making advanced technology accessible to everyone in the industry. CMP believes it has made that possible with its new AOP products and is very excited about the future of pool and spa water disinfection.

In 2021, CMP will continue its laser-focus on advancing pool and spa water sanitizer technologies along with continued improvements in supply chain, production and operations.
