Vortex International’s TwinSplash Wins MVP Award Vortex International is pleased to announce its TwinSplash has been named as a Most Valuable Product (MVP) in 2020 by readers of US-based magazine Aquatics International. The Aquatics International media network is a trusted source for industry professionals in all fields related to the development, outfitting, and maintenance of aquatic facilities. Every year, Aquatics International magazine readers vote on the industry’s best new products, with the top 25 receiving the Most Valuable Product award and a feature in the magazine’s Awards issue. This year, they selected Vortex’s TwinSplash, an iconic and exciting Splashpad® experience for children of all ages. The unique design of the TwinSplash offers two successive waves, creating a double surprise effect that is suitable for the whole family. Older children standing closer to the structure will experience the first more intense splash, while younger children can hang back to experience the second, wider and softer splash further away from the structure. It encourages communicative and interactive experiences as children anticipate the splash and enjoy the fun. It also provides a visual experience – the Seeflow™ casts colourful reflections created with a combination of bright colours, water and sunlight. Innovation is a core value at Vortex, and their entire team along with staff at their UK distributors Ustigate Waterplay, are delighted to have the TwinSplash’s design efforts validated by customers and industry peers. Such acknowledgements serve as a catalyst to inspire team members to new heights in the development and manufacturing of water attractions that provide high play value for families and children of all ages and abilities. This marks the fourth time a Vortex product has caught the eye of Aquatics International magazine readers and follows successes in 2018, 2016 and 2015.

The Unique Design Of NIVEKO’s Overflow Underflow The range of swimming pools from one-piece manufacturer NIVEKO has always been based on the option to adapt each pool to suit the individual requirements of every customer. Therefore the selection of literally all elements for a NIVEKO pool depends solely on the ideas and dreams of each owner, which the company will then bring to life. There are seven different types of swimming pool to choose from, every detail of which can be customised to suit different needs. The Overflow Underflow pool is a unique mix of the very best features of skimmer and overflow pools. The fact that the water surface disappears below the surrounding terrace means the minimum of water is lost as users swim, keeping the level as high as possible. This is the best type of pool for using a built-in counter-current to enhance

everybody’s enjoyment while swimming, and the sound of the water filter can be eliminated using the silent ‘Whisper’ variant of the overflow gutter. However, practical functionality is not the Overflow Underflow’s only strong point – the invisible edge of the pool, which disappears below the surround, easily makes the pool a decorative and dominant feature of every garden space. Thanks to the Overflow Underflow, NIVEKO are able to offer a unique pool design for customers with a clear idea of what they want and with specific requirements in mind. Its features and design make it a great choice for every family home. NIVEKO s.r.o. +420 572 693 246 www.niveko-pools.com

Lo-Chlor’s Simple To Use Liquid Pool Blanket For many swimming pool owners, ongoing maintenance and management of a pool can often be a hassle, and this is particularly true for domestic pool owners with smaller pools. The use of covers, despite their many benefits, can sometimes fall into this category too. So for those who are looking for an effective but more importantly, an extremely easy to use pool cover, Lo-Chlor’s has developed Liquid Pool Blanket – a solution which is one of the simplest ways to provide a cover to a pool. This new product, which was introduced at the start of the year,

is a specially blended formula that forms an ultra-thin and invisible protective layer on the pool water surface. As with any type of pool cover, this reduces evaporation and heat loss from the water to the atmosphere. Liquid Pool Blanket is compatible with all types of swimming pool and all disinfection treatments/pool chemicals. It has minimal impact on the pH of the water within the pool too. Other benefits include: • Very easy application. • Each dosage provides a month of protection.

• Reduces evaporation by approximately 25% and temperature loss by 3-4°C • It is up to 20% more effective than other similar products. • Non-flammable formula. Liquid Pool Blanket is a safe alternative to traditional swimming pool covers and a 1 litre bottle will provide 4 months of treatment for a 50,000 litre pool.
