He says that for more than 45 years, Sunbather has been dedicated to these very conversations – finding the best energy efficient heater system and pool cover and roller that best fits the needs of the pool owner. “We do all three types of heating – solar, gas and electric – and a complete range of pool cover and roller systems from fully automatic slat covers to hidden Downunder rollers and small above-ground rollers,” he says. “This enables us to be able to provide all the facts and options to enable the client to make an informed decision, with our only bias leaning towards best energy efficient and sustainable solutions for a particular application – bias we feel important in today’s climate.” He says that is why a few years ago they developed a smart app. “Our smart app easily and accurately provides the client with real data at their fingertips to explore all options and provide the pool owner with the whole story and all the facts,” he says. “While heating a swimming pool can consume a lot of energy, the industry is taking significant steps towards more sustainable options – future-proofing both the sector and the environment.”
