So easy to quote

3 rules for quoting customers

Your customers look to you as being the Expert who can offer them the right solution to their specific pool-related problem. Experience tells us that when you give a tailored, decisive solution and an accurate quote, it increases your chance of converting sales.

As a start, it’s always important to ask your customer about their issue or desires first, listen to what they have to say and then address their concerns while providing them with an accurate quote.

Daisy has made quoting pool covers so easy! We use square meter pricing! All you have to do is measure the pool, then multiply the length by the width, and then by the square meter price. Learn about our best practice rules for quoting customers.

Square meter pricing – a quick guide

So a Series 3 pool cover for a 6.3 x 2.2 meter pool is: 6.3 x 2.2 x $9.55 = $132.36 retail price (RRP) for the pool cover.

At Daisy, we can do any size so even a Series 8 cover for a 16.4 x 6.6m pool is the same: 16.4 x 6.6 x $16.80 = $1,818.43 RRP.

Customers look to you for the solution. Here’s what to do: 

3 rules when quoting

  1. Simply ask what they are trying to achieve, listen, and then address their concerns and desires with your solution. Giving them the time to listen and the tailored solution removes any price objections.
  2. Supply solutions and pricing when you are quoting.
  3. Get used to being able to price any pool cover by knowing the m2 price of even just the Series 8… $16.80 m2.

Expert Tip:

When ordering, please just give us the pool size to make the pool cover without adding in any extra to allow for trimming the pool cover. Daisy adds on extra material in the length and width to give ample material to trim to the pool shape.

Titanium Blue or Green?

Find out which colour is most popular

We have continued to receive fantastic feedback on the new UltraDome+ Titanium range and customers are enjoying choosing from the new sophisticated blue and green colour set that they come in.

Blue or Green?! (Drum roll please…)

With overwhelming market approval for the latest Titanium Green (S8+ TG) pool covers, we have discontinued the old Series 8 Green product and now only supply the new Titanium Green.

With this latest evolution and our ongoing commitment to improving our products, we have also made new Green Eyelets to suit the unique Titanium Green material.

TG-eyelet

New Green Eyelets – Item Code #225

The new green eyelet has been colour matched with the Pantone colour chart to give us the closest possible colour, and it looks great!

This new eyelet is used for all green eyelets and is Item Code #225. The old style green eyelet will be discontinued moving forward.

 

Expert Tip:

We will do our best to make sure we supply the new green eyelets for all rollers and refit kits that are ordered with a Titanium Green pool cover.

To help ensure we get it right every time you order a new roller or refit kit for a Titanium Green pool cover, please note on the order the Item code number #225, or write ‘with green eyelets’ and we will make sure the eyelets suit your customer’s beautiful new pool cover.

Last call before Christmas

Orders for pre-Christmas deliveries right up to 17th December

It’s been a cracking start to the season and by now we are already looking towards Christmas for a small reprieve (phew). It’s only our guess that few industries around Australia have been as busy as the pool industry!

You’ll be pleased to hear that Daisy does not close down over the Christmas period; except for the public holidays. We will be receiving, processing and dispatching all orders as they are received.

To ensure you receive your deliveries before the jolly man slides down the chimney, last expected pre-Christmas deliveries will need to be dispatched by 18th December so orders will need to be processed by 17th at the latest.

Ho! Ho! Ho! As the hard working Daisy elves will be dispatching all the way up to and over the Christmas period, most orders dispatched from 21st and 22nd may well be delivered before the big day.

However just so you know, even though delivery times may blow out while the transport companies recover from their Christmas pudding, Daisy will still work to our usual turnaround time of a day or two to custom make and dispatch your orders.

 

From all of us at Daisy, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Festive Season. Don’t forget to relax, have some fun and get your #bestaussieselfie on!

It’s not only size that matters…

5 features of the perfect pool cover bubble

Pool cover technology has come a long way from the early days of modified bubble wrap when the bubbles were flimsy and weaker. Today, we have the trademarked UltraDome design which offers consistent thickness and now we have the clear and transparent layers of UltraDome+ which allows  even more warmth to be trapped.

It’s not all in the size! The shape counts! The smaller, rounder and more consistent the bubble, the warmer your customer’s pool will be… not to mention the longer they can spend enjoying their pool.

Learn about the five features that make the perfect pool cover bubble:

  1. Size

  • Smaller bubble size is more effective
  • Maximum insulation
  • Maximum bubbles density
  1. Shape

  • A rounder more consistent shape eliminates weak points
  1. Thickness

  • Consistent bubble thickness for greater durability
  • 1/3 of total material in the top layer and 2/3 in the bottom layer which is in contact with corrosive chemicals
  1. Transparency

  • Unique clear top layer
  • Maximum heat and energy into the pool, not into the pool cover
  • Specially formulated translucent bottom layer
  • Modern titanium colours looking better for longer
  1. Material

  • Total polyethylene material
  • UV absorbers across the entire cover for maximum lifespan
  • Eliminates 97% evaporation
  • Efficient insulators against heat loss by radiation, convection and evaporation
  • Material tougheners for longer life.

Industry leading 1st pool cover technology

The latest UltraDome+ Titanium range features all of the above and not only utilises the UltraDome bubble technology, it has been designed and tested to let the maximum amount of the sun’s energy through and less out. The UltraDome+ clear top and translucent bottom is a winning layer combination as both layers allow maximum sun energy to pass through without interruption. Read about the UltraDome story.

Don’t forget our new product upgrades – coming soon!

S8 Green: The standard Series 8 Green had been superseded and is now being supplied as the Titanium Green – S8+ TG.

S8 SB Silver Back: As this range is has become obsolete it has been discontinued due to huge demand for the latest UltraDome+ Titanium range. All Silverback orders will be supplied as Titanium Blue.

S8 SS Solar Screen: With the UltraDome+ Titanium technology, Daisy is currently designing and testing a product upgrade of this solar screen range.

Advances with the new non-heating technology are:

  • a new non-heating opaque material
  • with evaporation and a unique cooling control
  • a new desirable appearance for the warmer climates; or for Aussies who just want to keep their pool cooler, or even to have a better external heating control over the pool temperature.

This S8 SS Solar Screen product upgrade should be available to your customers by the New Year. Stay tuned for more details; or feel free to catch up with your Daisy Area Manager for updates.

Wow, what a start to the season!

Ramping up production earlier this year to meet high demand

With so many of the states and regions around Australia enjoying beautiful spring (well more like summer) weather, and the threatened El Nino expected to bring higher than average temperatures and lower than average rainfall throughout much of the eastern seaboard this year; the start of the summer season has been a busy time for Daisy.

Daisy has seen solid demand through most parts of Australia with an overall positive and enthusiastic outlook for not only the summer season but for the whole economy as well.

With such a positive outlook for this summer, along with the popular launch of our latest UltraDome+, Daisy is in full summer production a bit earlier this year to meet the increased demand. Don’t forget we’re here to help you capitalise on sales in as many ways as we can from innovative new products, awesome promotions, to quality service!

Doing our utmost, because we care about service.

To give you the very best of service we will do our utmost to custom-make your pool cover and dispatch your order within a day or two from order.

Customers having experienced our exceptionally speedy same day service during the quieter months may notice a slight change back to standard delivery times during the busy season. Regardless, you will still be blown away with our quality service and attentiveness.

Tracking and delivery

At this time of year, freight companies are approaching their peak period as well. This means they have a higher workload so we also work together and keep an eye on turnaround and performance.

Daisy invoices your order on the day it leaves the factory, either in Sydney or Perth. Pro-forma invoices are emailed when the order is input into the system; actual invoices are emailed straight after dispatch. If you notice a prolonged delivery timeframe from invoice date, just let us know so we can follow up on the delivery for you.

The best way to track your delivery is:

Pool covers that will make it onto your customer’s wish list

The latest S8+ Titanium covers will woo anyone this summer!

With pool technology rapidly improving, pool cover aesthetics have also come a long way. It’s time to throw away any stigma attached to using outdated – has-been – pool covers and get with the times.

Daisy’s latest UltraDome+™ Titanium pool covers may just woo your customers and make their way onto their wish list this summer season! The S8+ Titanium range offers a modern and sophisticated design to complement latest pool landscapes and fittings and its many additional benefits make it much easier to sell to your customers. Are you familiar with these benefits?

 

The UltraDome+ Titanium range – S8+TB and S8+TG

The new UltraDome+ Titanium range not only utilises the UltraDome bubble technology, it has been designed and tested to let the maximum amount of the sun’s energy through and less out.

A winning layer combination

The sun’s energy needs to be able to pass easily through the transparent material to enter the water. The less energy being used to pass through, the more energy there is available to warm the water. The UltraDome+ clear top and translucent bottom is a winning layer combination as both layers allow maximum sun energy to pass through without interruption.

How does the UltraDome+ Titanium range compare with other covers on the market?

Daisy Poll Covers - Australia's Favourite

New Dig Template sales tool for you!

Take risk out of the equation for your new pool owners

Fibreglass pool installers find our Daisy Dig Templates useful in helping to accurately set out the pool location and mark out the dig on fibreglass pools.

Dig Templates are traditionally black in colour and made out of durable polyethylene (PE) material. As black is sometimes difficult to visualise as pool water, we’ve developed something new!

Sales Templates are now available in translucent blue PE material. The improved colour has been designed to make it easier for new pool owners to visualise the pool installed in their backyard. With the data collected from the pool shell we can make the templates the perfect sales tool while measuring up at a potential customer’s yard. They can even be used as the dig template to pre-cut to the pool’s exact shape.

Why Sales Templates are perfect for new pool owners?

  1. Visually inspiring translucent blue colour
  2. Takes the risk out of the process
  3. A perfect size and shape is guaranteed, saving time and costs.

Sales Templates are used to position the pool in the yard to get the sizing and positioning just right for your customer. It saves time and second guessing especially as mum will be able to see the pool from the lounge room window, and dad can also get a concept of where the fencing will need to go. The new translucent blue colour will help your customer visualise and make a speedier decision!

 

Codes and pricing:

Blue Translucent Sales Templates

Made from single piece blue 150um PE material

BST7 $81.00 + GST or Blue Sales Template to fit pools up to 7.0 meters long
