2016 The NESPA Pool & Spa Show Summary

As always, my summaries are slanted toward robotic pool cleaners and anything else that I think maybe of be interest to you. Below are some comments about the major manufacturers and their product lines for the upcoming season:

Pentair
In terms of cleaners they have no new offerings and continue to OEM the robotic cleaner from Maytronics under their own Prowler name.

Zodiac
The Zodiac representative mentioned that there would be no changes for 2016, however they did note that the updated motor assay part numbers from 2015 would be integrated into the 2016 parts manual. Not of interest to consumers except if you are interested in a robotic cleaner from this company, make sure you are getting it from new stock with the updated motor.

Hayward
Hayward has made some changes to their 500 Class robotic pool cleaners with an updated power supply and a new more modern look. A picture of their commercial unit, the 500C is below.

Their residential unit, the AquaVac 500, is pictured below.

In terms of new products, there was one item that did standout; it is called the Skimdevil™. More detail to come in my next blog.
