Climacube Water Heat System Reduces Energy Costs National hot tub supplier Park Leisure Solutions Ltd finished an impressive 2018 with their groundbreaking, energy efficient, Climacube Water Heating System winning both ‘Spa Product of the Year’ and ‘Energy Efficient Product of the Year’ at a recent industry awards. The arrival of the UK designed Climacube Water Heat System is set to revolutionise the commercial hot tub and spa industry, with major UK Park Operators already using or ordering the new energy efficient design. Backed by a worldwide patent, the stand alone Climacube Water Heat System works off a standard 13 amp power supply and can either be supplied from new or retrofitted to any contemporary hot tub or spa. In test results against current conventional heating systems the Climacube saved on average just under 60% less time to heat up a hot tub and a massive 85.7% reduction in energy cost – great news for both customers

and the environment. Managing Director, Stuart Mulchay said: “Our design offers the very latest energy saving heat technology, dramatically reducing running costs, reducing the carbon footprint and enables customers to use their hot tubs and spas all year round, at the desired temperature without the concern of cost.” Climacube has been developed using the latest energy saving technology and is designed to create hot water at a fraction of the cost associated with conventional methods. By absorbing ambient heat from the air the highly advanced specialised refrigerant gas, propelled by a silent compressor (similar to a refrigerator but in reverse), enables a quick heat up time with no need to add expensive additional heating elements or hot fill from a boiler. The Climabube only requires 800

watts (less than 3.5 amps) to operate. In tests at an ambient temperature of 5 degrees C the Climacube produced a rise in temperature of 6 degrees per hour in a 1,200 litre hot tub. Park Leisure Solutions Ltd 01202 691166

Superior Spas Breaks Ground On New Factory Superior Spas, the East Midlands-based spa supplier has broken ground on a brand new, 400,000 sq ft factory in China as it pushes ahead with plans to up its own brand manufacturing and expand its presence internationally beyond the UK and Europe. According to the company, the huge new space will be the largest hot tub manufacturing facility in the world and will give Superior Spas the capacity to expand further into manufacturing for other hot tub firms. Coupled with a new distribution centre being constructed in Chesterfield, it will see the East Midlands outfit become one of the largest spa and hot tub firms in the world too – at a time when many businesses are struggling to shake off Brexit fears. Robert Carlin, Superior Spas Managing Director said: “This is a very exciting time for Superior Spas and we are striding forwards with confidence as we realise our very ambitious growth plans. Having our own state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is a game changer for the Superior Spas brand and one that will elevate us to an international presence outside of Europe for the first time. This will also mean we create more jobs, bring more to the local economy at home and generate more export and import business.” The firm expects to create 20 new UK jobs initially and hundreds of new roles in China. Production at the factory, located in HuBei, will start in March with Superior Spas products being moved from the current manufacturer to the firm’s own factory over the course of the next 12 months. The company’s full range of Platinum and Swim Spas will be taken in-house. To find out more visit the team on stand C66 at SPATEX. Superior Spas 01246 559071 25+27_Feb_19_Wellness.indd 25

A Silver (Free) Bullet For Spas Changes to the laws and regulations governing the use of silver in the EU have led to a new introduction to the spa sanitiser market: the SPA FROG Conditioning Cartridge. Designed for use with the SPA FROG Bromine Cartridge, it was launched by its exclusive distributor Golden Coast in spring 2018 as a replacement to the popular SPA FROG Mineral Cartridge. The decision follows changes made to meet the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) requirements, under article 95 (1) of the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR). “Making the switch to anything new can be daunting however; this isn’t a ‘new’ product. In fact, it’s been available in the busy North American marketplace for several years, where it’s proven

itself time and time again… so much so that it’s now the global standard,” said Golden Coast Managing Director Jamie Adams. Suitable for hot tubs up to 2,271 gallons, the SPA FROG Conditioning Cartridge gives water a softer feel, maintains a neutral pH and polishes the water for absolute clarity. Cartridges work with the SPA FROG complete water care system, last four full months and are supplied pre-filled, removing the risk of mess, guess or stress. Jamie concluded: “For our customers, it offers a seamless transition and confident compliance with the law. What’s more, like every product in our Essentials range of pool and spa accessories, it offers great value.” Golden Coast 01271 378100
