EXCLUSIVE! Pool Industry Sneak Peek
5 Products This Maytronics Girl Can’t Keep to Herself
By Christine G. Adamo
Are you good at keeping secrets? With me it depends on what kind of details you’re disclosing. I’m certain about one thing, though. When it comes to outdoor and backyard living, this Maytronics girl can’t keep anything to herself. Why should I? There’s just so much to say!
AQUA magazine is aimed at retailers, builders and service folks. The kind who make life easier on those of us who revel in the private swimming pool, residential swimming pool and at-home spa experience. This is where you come in—as the owner of a Dolphin robotic pool cleaner or related product.
The mag highlights industry news, trends and product releases. Its staff pulls together a Buyers’ Guide of roughly 1,700 listings each December. (View it online HERE.) In “Backyard Living” alone you’ll find things like swank benches, cabanas, patio heaters, market umbrellas and wood burning ovens.
5 NEW! Pool Products You Should Know About
After perusing a recent, insider AQUA missive about Spring’s hottest products for pools, I knew I had to share a few of them. Me an my loose lips. In this case? They just may save the day.
Because if you, the proud owner of a snazzy pool cleaning robot, can’t count on me to come clean with exclusive insights? Who can you turn to? Envision this for a minute.
Your automatic pool cleaner is busily humming away on your behalf. As it’s doing that, your MyDolphinTM App is silently tending to the task of making sure that your cute li’l robot scrubs clean every drop of pool water.
You’re now free to move about the cabana. (Did you catch that?) With pool care on autopilot, all that’s left to do is enjoy yourself!
These (5) products which follow will help you do just that:
• Bobé Tiki Torches
• AquaFinesse After-Spa Lotion
• Pigro Felice Modul’Air® Collection
• LOOP-LOC PearlEssence Liners
• BONUS! Solara Pool Heating Systems
Know this before you reply, “In these colors?” What makes Hydrocliner floating recliners special is their ability to let you relax into the water. Few pool recliners do that—without a struggle! When the sun’s hot, you’ll keep cool. When the night chill sets in, you’ll rest in water that’s been warmed all day.
Each one is form-fitting and superlight, at 16 oz., which is sure to make them a favorite for those with a family. (Read: No need to get up and fetch it for anyone else!) It folds closed for storage in a patio bin or boat cubby. I’m partial to the Bahia in shocking pink. How ‘bout you? At less than $15, why not?
Bobé Tiki Torches
Add fiery, artisan flair to your next poolside soirée. Bobé Water & Fire Flambeau Tiki Torches are crafted from hand-formed copper. At 80” (or 6-ft. 8-in.) long, that’s one tall glass of swimming pool water!
But don’t be deceived by their sleek design, engineered in the U.S. to last many moons. These beauties are study, with a 15-lb. torch head for stability and a post reinforced with 10 individually-machined parts. Each fits seamlessly into the others for an eye-catching design.
