Home | News | Press Releases | New 40 Ft Cord Pool Cover Pump is Safer & More Efficient!

Automatic Pool Covers, Inc. is pleased to now offer an exclusive caviar black pool cover pump with a 40 ft power cord, 15 feet longer than others on the market, allowing for significantly more coverage area. It removes water from pool covers and other applications often without the need for an extension cord and waterproof connector.

Without a pump, standing water on a pool cover is a risk and can damage the cover. The APCP-1700-40 pump eliminates risks associated with using extension cords around the pool.

Designed to remove water faster than safety code standards, this pump is also easy to maintain, has a convenient handle, and the black color draws solar heat in colder climates to help melt snow. 

Retail display packaging makes it ideal for promotions. ASTM approved. Sold in pallet and half-pallet sizes, call for pricing – (855) 810-1926.

Additionally, Automatic Pool Covers offers its AutoGuard™ automatic pool cover system gives pool owners the most convenient option in pool cover safety.  The PowerTouch™ security control pad provides coded locking control and our Smart Motion™ patented system provides real-time diagnostics to prevent problems, and to quickly locate potential maintenance needs. Built with commercial grade hardware, our units deliver more than 1500 pounds of torque, so pools can be safely concealed or opened in about 60 seconds or less (depending on pool length)! AutoGuard™ covers exceed industry safety standards (ASTM-1346).  Automatic Pool Covers also offers exclusive, slip resistant coping that is sand-infused to create a texture that makes the surface slip-resistant and safer for users walking around the pool.  This design enhancement was developed as a part of Automatic Pool Cover’s commitment to providing the safest automatic pool covers on the market.  To learn more about Automatic Pool Cover’s commitment to safety and all its product innovation, visit their website or Facebook page.

Heritage Pool Supply Group, Inc. (“Heritage”) announced today that it has acquired Pool Builders Supply of the Carolinas, Inc. (“PBS”), a leading wholesale distributor of pool and spa products in the Southeast. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Headquartered in Charlotte, NC, PBS was founded in 1976 by Olen & Betty Morgan and is run today by their children, Taryn Springsteed & Matt Morgan. The Company operates nine distribution locations across five states (NC, SC, VA, GA, and TN). Taryn, Matt, and the rest of the company’s leadership team will continue to lead PBS’ dedicated employee base under the existing brand banner, ensuring continuity and consistency for customers, suppliers, and employees.

Matt McDermott, President of Heritage, commented, “We are thrilled to partner with Taryn and Matt and are honored to have the hard-working employees of PBS join our growing family of companies.

Polaris launches its first robotic cleaner line-up for commercial pools with the VORTRAX™ cleaners.

SAN DIEGO – September 29, 2022 – Fluidra®, a leading manufacturer of innovative automatic pool cleaners and pool equipment, introduces the NEW Polaris® VORTRAX™ robotic cleaners for light commercial pools to its industry-leading lineup. Engineered for enhanced maneuverability and superior debris collection, the VORTRAX 30iQ and VORTRAX 25iQ offer a powerful robotic cleaning solution to suit the needs of small to medium commercial pools such as hotel, motel, apartment complex and condo (HMAC) pools.

Equipped with Polaris’ newest cleaning technologies, the VORTRAX robotic pool cleaners are designed to efficiently and effectively cover the entire pool by assessing each pool’s shape, size and surface material to determine the optimal amount of cleaning time. Using the latest navigational instruments, the VORTRAX cleaners each employ an Enhanced Sensor Nav System™ to automatically adjust to fluctuating factors — such as water depth and acceleration to ensure comprehensive cleaning. The VORTRAX 30iQ offers additional obstacle and wall detection with six advanced ultrasonic sensors — yielding superior results in pools with unique layouts and add-ons.

Made with long-lasting, durable materials and heavy-duty tracks that provide increased traction and help extend motor life, these industrial-strength pool cleaners feature a robust construction that can withstand the rigors of everyday cleaning in high-traffic pools where dirt and debris can accumulate quickly. A Dual-Stage Filtration System, comprised of two stackable mesh filters of different sizes, ensures everything from leaves and acorns to sand, silt and strands of hair are extricated — leaving you with an immaculate pool that’s ready for swimmers.

Additionally, both VORTRAX cleaners come with proprietary Double Helix Brushes on either side that gently agitate stuck-on dirt and draw debris in, channeling it towards the large inlet for more effective cleaning.

Enhanced scheduling options that can be controlled via the iAquaLink® app or control box make these cleaners ideal for commercial use with programmable recurring cycles up to six hours, a delayed start timer that allows sediment to settle to the floor before starting a cycle and a remote control with targeted spot cleaning for quick clean-ups as needed.

WiFi connectivity gives pool operators access to clean the pool anytime, anywhere using their smartphone or mobile device; users can Start/Stop a cleaning cycle, view the cycle timer, choose a cleaning mode, initiate the lift system, and receive troubleshooting — all from the palm of their hand.

For powerful cleaning and easy operation, the VORTRAX cleaners come standard with Vortex Vacuum technology, a large filter canister and Polaris’ well-known Easy Lift Removal System that brings the cleaner up to the waterline with the touch of a button and rapidly evacuates water for lightweight removal and transport.

The Polaris VORTRAX light commercial robotic cleaners are a part of Fluidra’s Trade Series Exclusive lineup of products; made exclusively for brick-and-mortar dealers and not available for Internet resale. Pool professionals are encouraged to contact their local Fluidra representative for information on the Polaris VORTRAX cleaners.

Fluidra is a publicly listed company focused on developing innovative products, services and IoT solutions for the residential and commercial pool markets, globally. The company operates in over 45 countries and owns a portfolio of some of the industry’s most recognized and trusted brands, including Jandy®, Polaris®, Zodiac®, CMP and S.R. Smith.
