Product of the Month: Aquamatic Cover Systems
Aquamatic Cover Systems’ proven hydraulic technology can now be powered via solar. Solar panels are mounted directly onto the enclosure, making them ideal for retro-fit installations where running power is a challenge due to existing decks. Aquamatic’s solar package can easily be adapted to both the Hydramatic and HydraLux automatic pool cover systems. The HydraLux is an ideal solution for large commercial pools, and the system can move back from the pool up to 10 feet at the turn of a key: No more large reels that require multiple persons to deploy. Both units are supported by a limited 20-year mechanical warranty.

AquaStar Pool Products
AquaStar Pool Products, Inc. announces a new product category launch with its Pipeline Filters, available in two different sizes: the PLF27000 for pools up to 27,000 gallons, and the PLF35000 for pools up to 35,000 gallons. Pipeline Filters offer both a smaller footprint and patented linking capabilities, which allow for space-efficient equipment pads as well as ease of installation and filter cleaning. As opposed to traditional clamps, the AquaStar Pipeline Filters use a patented safe-release collar for lid removal and replacement. Pipeline Filters feature a unique double-locking ring that mechanically compresses and decompresses the O-ring seal using two large handles. This means no more hugging filter tops or “bumping-the-pump” to open filter tanks.

Designed for energy efficiency and longevity, the ATLAS XT operates well even at lower flow rates and comes with a unique regulator valve that automatically controls excess water flow.

Fox Pools now offers pool builders the patented X-Brace Technology that provides 100% support of the pool walls and pool deck without concern for internal or external pressures. The X-Brace structure is bolted to the Fox Pool panels using heavy duty, corrosion resistant bolts. Designed to make it faster and easier for builders to install, the X-Brace uses a simple system of steel rods and “S” hooks that anchor the X-Brace and wall panel to the ground so the pool can be backfilled with or without water in the pool.
