been on the back of new product initiatives. We’ve got 14,000 products in our database – in the US Pool Corp has 35,000. So we’ll progressively put some of those products through. We have brought a lot of trends from the US or European market – we get a heads up on what’s happening and monitor it over 12 months and then bring it. For example, we’ve got the ICO connected pool device. I saw it in Croatia last year, and we’ve made some tweaks for the Australian market and launched it at SPLASH! It’s had an overwhelming response at SPLASH! – we’re air freighting units over just based on the show. We’ve got over 120 new products on the stand and throughout different stages of yesterday we couldn’t move on the stand, it was so busy. We’ve also got a pool furniture product called Ledge Lounger (pictured) – they actually took a stand of their own in support of Pool Systems, and the response to that has been phenomenal – we know architects and designers who’ve changed their pool designs just to suit that product.”
