Top tips to help boost your pool cleaner sales…

MAYTRONICS, available through Certikin, are innovators of the electronic robot cleaner.

Maintaining a clean pool can be a time-consuming and labour-intensive task. Thankfully, with the help of an automatic pool cleaner, it can be easier to keep a pool in pristine condition. With that in mind, they say the best way to sell a swimming pool cleaner is to give a customer, courtesy use of a unit, for a fixed time period, on free trial.

Once they have experienced the multiple benefits of a cleaner, you would be hard pushed to wrestle the clean machine from the customers’ grasp. “Many pool companies have great success when they use a cleaner as part of routine pool maintenance to generate an inquiry,” advises Neil Muscat, Pools Division Sales Manager.

“Alternatively, loan machines are available so that the end user is able to try before they buy.” Automatic pool cleaners are of most interest to the end user at the beginning of the season say Certikin, one of the official distributors in the UK of Dolphin pool cleaners, supplied by Maytronics.

NEW TO THE UK AUTOMATIC pool cleaner market this season is an impressive robotic offering from Ocea UK.

With a proven 35-year track record, Maytronics are innovators of the electronic robot cleaner with a wealth of worldwide pool knowledge and pool profiles, so always have the right cleaner range for the market they are selling in.

The PiranhaX range, available through Golden Coast, offers three distinct models: the compact PiranhaX Go, the popular PiranhaX Plus, and the robust PiranhaX Max for more demanding pool applications. “Test after test has shown the PiranhaX to be a best-in-class pool cleaner,” says Adam Clark, General Manager at Golden Coast.

“Their intelligent design, ease of use, and user-friendly features make them an incredibly attractive proposition for pool owners.” With an RRP of £1332 to £2010, PiranhaX stands out from traditional pool cleaning robots due to its strong cogwheel mechanism, which eliminates the need for belts and ensures excellent stability during operation. This feature makes the range incredibly dependable and capable of handling powerful torque. Additionally, all models have remarkable slope durability, enabling them to handle inclines and contours on the pool bottom with ease.

Each model also includes a special cable with a 360° rotational mechanism to prevent tangling during operation, a common issue with wired robots. Furthermore, the ClearView panel simplifies filter inspection, saving time and effort during maintenance. And when it comes to filtration, PiranhaX has two individual 4D Hyperfine 430cm2 microfibre filters, which results in 860cm2 (3.7l) maximum water filtration, ensuring that your pool water stays clean and clear.
