Helios Technologies’ Operating Company Balboa Water Group Partners With WaterGuru


Helios Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: HLIO), a global leader in highly engineered motion control and electronic controls technology, is excited to announce that its operating company Balboa Water Group (“Balboa”) has signed a strategic agreement with WaterGuru, Inc. WaterGuru is a leader in recreational water monitoring technology whose SENSE products are, according to the company, relied upon by tens of thousands of residential and commercial pool owners, and hospitality/property managers who are dedicated to assuring safe, pristine swimming experiences for millions of guests.

This agreement provides Balboa with an exclusive license to integrate WaterGuru technology into Balboa’s leading products for the spa industry.

“This collaboration brings together the unparalleled expertise and resources of both companies to drive innovation, enhance product offerings, and deliver exceptional value to customers worldwide. By leveraging our collective strengths and capabilities, Balboa and WaterGuru are raising the standard of excellence for the hot tub and spa industry,” says Josef Matosevic, president and chief executive officer of Helios.

The patented technology from WaterGuru enables spa owners to consistently attain healthy spa water, an important element needed in broadening the market adoption of spas. Incorporating this proven technology into Balboa’s products will fully automate the monitoring of spa water chemistry, providing spa owners with real-time data on their mobile app. For property and hotel managers overseeing multiple spas, viewing their water health data in a single dashboard is a game changer to eliminating water quality issues.

The paradigm-shifting solution:

  • improves water quality with daily automated and on-demand testing/monitoring,
  • reduces chemical use,
  • increases hot tub longevity, and
  • acts as an early warning system prior to pump failures and ensures that water temperature is maintained at desired levels.

Advanced features include an in-app co-pilot advisor leveraging AI against a digital twin created for every pool/spa. Together, Balboa and WaterGuru are bringing to market state-of-the-art water sensing and automated solutions for the spa, plunge pool, and cold plunge pool industries.

“We are thrilled to partner with Balboa Water Group in this groundbreaking venture. This collaboration underscores our shared dedication to fostering innovation that pushes technical boundaries in addressing long-standing spa owner concerns. By combining our strengths, we are creating transformative solutions that shape the future of how pool/spa owners and property managers maintain their spa water and protect their equipment,” says Paul Fulton, chief executive officer of WaterGuru.
