New Catalina Atlantic Pool An Alternative To More Traditional Pools The Catalina Atlantic Pool is a massive 21 feet long (6.35m) and has three different internal depths and unlike many above-ground pools, the Atlantic is fully insulated and fully self-supporting. The Atlantic’s shell is made using a two pack gelcoat fibre reinforced resin system, which is insulated with a thick layer of spray applied foam and a special radiant GAURD Reflex-Air™ coating is added to the inside of the cabinet. This together with a four piece deluxe safety / insulation cover makes the Atlantic one of the most energy efficient and cost effective products on the market. The Atlantic Pool is available either above or in-ground and in four power settings. A 6kW heater and Ozone is standard on all models and for those looking for ways to keep fit as well have fun, the Atlantic Pool has all the options. The Atlantic’s shell is available in Ice Blue, off White and Blue and PVC cabinet options are Grey, Walnut and Mocha. Standard features include: variable internal depths of 1.2m, 1.37m and 1.5m, internal walk in steps with highlighted tiled edge and LED lighting, 2 x 900mm exercise bars, 3 x 450mm LED Cascading waterfalls, 2 x LED underwater lights, Pro Swim and rigid insulation / safety covers.

Wellis Launch New Swim Spa Range Hungarian manufacturer Wellis, along with its new UK distributor Superior Spas, used their debut appearances at SPATEX to promote a number of new features on the company’s latest hot tubs plus unveiled the new Wellis swim spa range. The new range, which consists of five models, includes the top of the range Rio Grande, which was on display at the three-day event in Coventry. The new swim spa models are being manufactured at the company’s new factory that opened last year and the range includes Rio Grande, Amazonas, Amazonas Power, Danube and Danube Power models. All of the new swim spas have a 5mm fibreglass reinforced acrylic spa shell and are constructed with a stainless steel frame. They also feature UV-C water sanitisers, exclusive chromotherapy lighting and come with a Thermo cover. A number of other options are also available across the range too. The flagship Rio Grande model has 58 jets and incorporates a separate spa seating area that features seating for three people plus a lounge seat, whilst in the swim side, three River Jets provide a powerful and even flow of water. Both the Amazonas Power and Danube Power models also feature three River jets, which is the main difference between them and the standard models, which are only equipped with one. Over recent years, the European brand has gone from strengthto-strength and the addition of the swim spa range along with the appointment of Superior Spas as the UK distributor is a statement of intent from the manufacturer who are now in a position to produce in excess of 20,000 units per year.

Optional upgrades are available and these include: 12 Crystal water fountains, 21 perimeter LED lights, Turbo heated air and 6 x 75mmØ LED under water pool lights. Compared to a traditional swimming pool, the Atlantic gives massive savings as initial outlay costs are considerably less due to less preparation being needed. The self-supporting structure of the Atlantic Pool means it can simply be dropped into place and because all of the mechanical components are mounted inside the cabinet the only thing that needs connecting is a power supply. The Atlantic Pool and all Catalina spas, swim spas and fitness pools are all backed with the unique Catalina ten year warranty plan. Catalina Spas 01980 611555 www.catalinaspas.co.uk

Golden Coast Adds Aqua Broom To Its Cleaning Line-up The latest addition to Golden Coast’s comprehensive line-up of pool and spa cleaners answers the demands of hot tub and above-ground pool owners for an affordable and efficient cleaning solution. Pool Blaster Aqua Broom, which is available exclusively through Golden Coast, offers a cost-effective alternative to labour-intensive pool wands and ineffective garden hoses. Golden Coast Managing Director Jamie Adams explained the problem: “For this ever-growing group of owners, a garden hose makes perfect sense, but, as they’ll discover, it’s ineffective, slow and results in lots of cold water being introduced into the small pool or spa. “Inexpensive pool wands are more effective, but they require a lot of effort from pool users. While they’re effective at capturing large debris, they aren’t as effective with sand and algae – so water is never really clean. “Aqua Broom offers an affordably priced, effective alternative – that is more powerful, too – ensuring cleaning is quicker and easier. It operates on just five D-Cell batteries and owners need only to place it in the water and turn it on to begin creating a cleaner and safer environment for their families.” For customers looking for more enhanced results, optional micro-filter bags can be fitted to remove sand, silt and even algae.
