AstralPool’s New Easy To Install Filtering Skimmer AstralPool has launched a new 2-in-1 cartridge skimmer that saves time and money in the installation of a pool. Manufactured in Europe to EU quality standards, being compact makes it quick and easy to install. Its finishes are customisable, it delivers optimum filtration and is very easy to maintain. The skimmer filters the water and retains any dirt found in it. It is then filtered by a built-in cartridge of 15 microns that delivers optimum filtration quality. Once the water is clean, it is returned to the circuit thanks to a pump that sucks it in and pours it back into the pool. Available for concrete, panel and prefabricated pools, the skimmer is made of white ABS with UV treatment. It includes a gate, a lid height regulator together with an upper connection 32mm in diameter for regulating excess water, a skimmer basket and two filter cartridges. The colour of the mouth and lid

can be customised in beige, grey or anthracite and is so straightforward that pool owners can give their pools a stylish makeover whenever they want. There are also various connections along the body: Ø 63 mm on the bottom and Ø 55 mm on the side. These side connections are for the suction nozzles, which must be fitted in accordance with standard EN-16713-2, Sect. 4.4.1. The purpose of this is to avoid blockages and ensure that the pump does not run out of water. The filter cartridge is available in two sizes (16m³ and 20m³), which will depend on the size of the pool (16 m³ for pools of up to 50m3 and 20m³ for pools of up to 80m3). Made of an extremely resistant, long-lasting material (PET), it is easy to clean and handle. AstralPool UK 01329 514000 www.astralpool.co.uk

Unique Wooden Diving Boards For High-end Projects

Some high-end products are hard to find – making them original and unique – and the wooden diving boards by Mikel Tube certainly fall into this category. Years of experience have provided the foundation for quality and innovation and what once started as a single project has now become a full time activity with customers all over the world. In 2020 the Derover 1 was launched and immediately got the attention of the industry. Some describe it as a piece of art. Indeed the new techniques used have allowed the creation of a stunning wooden diving board without losing the initial basic design that distinguishes the products of Mikel Tube.  Each board is handcrafted and can be personalised to a customers wishes. The best wood for a diving board is a Brazilian hardwood called Tambuia, better known as IPE. It offers strength and flexibility while also being very sustainable. But this kind of wood also requires a particular approach. Unlike classic species, IPE has its own particular qualities and years of experience have ensured that special assembly techniques for using the wood have been mastered by Mikel. Starting with the exclusive ‘floating’ technique® at first and now releasing the innovative ‘tension’ technique®, makes the wooden diving boards of Mikel Tube unique. Is it the icing on the cake? Whether for a swimming pool or a motor yacht, one of these diving boards can certainly be thought of like a jewel that finalises the whole project. The owner has made a real effort to find the top location, a designer who perfectly embeds the project into this environment, a pool builder then carefully deploys what has been conceived. All this effort will stand out with a beautiful diving board. Wooden Diving Boards +32 23 35 08 19 www.woodendivingboards.com
