Waterco's MultiCyclone 16 is a first stage filtration device, which is designed to capture up to 80% of the incoming dirt load prior to the main filter, which then significantly reduces filter maintenance and saves backwash water — not to mention improving water circulation. The installation of a MultiCyclone before a filter can reduce its backwash frequency, resulting in savings of up to 1,800 gallons of water per year for an average, residential-sized swimming pool.

Millboard Decking says its product is virtually indistinguishable from real wood, yet outperforms it on almost every level — and it's "the only decking hand-molded from natural timbers for unmatched texture and variation." Unlike timber boards, or even some conventional composite boards, Millboard Decking features a strong polymer core which provides structure while also resisting the elements. These boards require minimal maintenance, are slip resistant and won't warp or rot from moisture decay, algae or harbor insects. Millboard Decking and siding products combine the natural beauty of real wood with the high performance of a hybrid of polyurethane, the company says. Each board is carefully hand-colored in the realistic true-to-life tonal shades and, with a variety of colors and textures available, it appeals to all styles.

Clearwater Pool Systems
Clearwater Pool System's pH PURE controls the pH with CO2 instead of acid. The PH-50 balances a customer's pool every day, so there's no more pH bounce. CO2 has been used on commercial pools for decades and is now available for residential pools. With a cost that's 1/5th of traditional chemicals, it's ideal for your customers, the company says. Whether ensuring proper finish curing with a balanced pH, or keeping chlorine efficient at the proper pH, it's sure to save you time and money with fewer callbacks. Builders know how important proper chemistry is. When the vulnerable finish isn't allowed to cure correctly, it can be ruined or have years taken off how long it should last.
