April 2022 New Pool & Spa Products


Product of the Month: Aristech Surfaces

Aristech Surfaces LLC is pleased to introduce a new, patent-pending material: Avonite Flex. This innovative liner gives an elegant, refined look to hot tub and swim spa interiors.

With the launch of Avonite Flex, the company hopes to invigorate the demand for luxury. This material was developed with the idea of combining two worlds: on the one hand, the realm of hot tubs, invested in practical materials that are customizable, durable and easy to mass-produce; and on the other hand, the realm of interior design, geared to private customers seeking an additional element of comfort without sacrificing style.

As part of the Avonite line of products, Avonite Flex offers the brand’s famous soft feel and signature texture. Like all Avonite materials, Avonite Flex can be milled, machined, etched and even stamped. In addition, the material is resistant to staining and chemical cleaners, and its non-porous, bacteriostatic surface limits the growth of microorganisms.

Avonite Flex is available in two colors: Alabaster Wave 8705 and Pure Alabaster 8701. Supplied in sheets or rolls, the sheeting is 3 mm thick and is available in widths of up to 108 inches.

This product is ready to use, safe and effective for all chlorine types and salt pools.

Fluidra has launched a new suction-side cleaner, the Polaris ATLAS XT. Engineered with HALO technology for superior debris removal, the ATLAS XT cleaner collects larger leaves that get drawn directly into the filtration system while preventing impediments — allowing for continuous, uninterrupted cleaning, the company says. This product features multi-directional navigation, yielding enhanced movement patterns that alternate direction, durable Tri-Point tacks designed for greater traction and powerful turbines for exceptional wall climbing on all pool surfaces. 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.

The Keystone Traverse 250 (KLTRV-250), ideal for ornamental fences, fits a 2.5-inch fence or gate post. The Keystone Traverse 400 (KLTRV-400), ideal for vinyl fences, fits a 4-inch fence or gate post. Part of the CornerStone product line is the new fully adjustable Heavy-Duty CornerStone 2 Hinge (C2H350F-SD-BK) for wood and vinyl fences.

Fortress Building Products
Beautiful and durable, Apex capped bamboo-PVC composite decking from Fortress Building Products emulates the natural wood grain patterns and richness that standard wood deck boards provide, but will not warp, crack, fade or deteriorate over time. An ideal decking solution for any sort of application where moisture is present, including swimming pools and hot tubs, Apex is engineered to defend against water infiltration while also offering slip-resistance and first-rate protection against heat. Because the bamboo-PVC composite defends against moisture, UV rays and the effects of weathering, it will maintain its vibrant aesthetic for years — no staining needed.

Cal Spas
The Cal Salt Filtration Sanitation System produces a pure form of chlorine by electrolysis of salt (NaCl) in order to sanitize spa water. After the salt is converted to chlorine and the bacteria is killed, the chlorine converts back to salt — and this process is ongoing. The salt concentration used is very low: less than that in a human tear, according to the company.
