Cool By Design – New Zodiac Nicheless LED Lights Launched The Zodiac Pro Series LED Nicheless lights with HydroCool™ technology use an innovative, energy-efficient design that harnesses the cooling power of water to create a cooler running and (based on internal testing) longer lasting light. Designed to fit in a standard 1-1/2” return fitting, these lights are smaller than standard lights to accommodate complex pool designs. Thanks to the latest LED advancements, they operate at lower wattages and reduce energy costs while providing brilliant illumination. The lights come standard in black with complementary grey and white cosmetic trim ring covers to match a larger variety of pool surfaces. They feature: • A triple-material, unibody construction design eliminates common leakage failure points • A diffuser lens which provides better blending of light for the clearest and most consistent lighting in its class • Design which allows heat from the LEDs to

Oceaninspired Mosaics From Waxman Ceramics transfer to the water • A cool running, single seam design • An included protective cover and robust installation tool.

New Products Expand Ustigate’s Aquatic Play Offering Ustigate Waterplay is welcoming new products and more interactive fun for little ones this season. Designed by Ustigate’s partner Vortex Aquatics Structures International, Pico, Alto, Hop and PlayNuk are all new products that will appeal to children aged two to five years. Pico, Alto and Hop are three new additions to Water Journey; a product collection that has received several design awards, including Most Valuable Product by Aquatics International Magazine in 2016. Inspired by nature, Water Journey includes Labyrinth, Jet Dance, Race and Tide Pool; a series of low flow rate concepts where children learn through play via a push pump, water channels, jets, weirs and

zero standing water. Across all four game options, children love to manipulate water currents to create play experiences that continuously shift and reshape. Pico and Alto now add a mountainous play experience to Water Journey, and Hop is a formation of stepping-stone pads that engage children to hop, jump, skip and splash! PlayNuk joins the Elevations family with a two-deck exploration hub that is specially scaled for young children. Softer spray features, smaller steps with double handrails, strategically shaded spaces, and age-appropriate games get young children exploring exciting new frontiers on their own safely. By respecting their unique scale, perspective, and play tempo, these new elements fully engage little ones in the discovery of aquatic play. Water Journey and PlayNuk have been meticulously designed to help develop the emotional, cognitive and motor skills of newcomers to the wonderful world of aquatic play.
