We have a December 2014 #bestsplashchallenge Winner!

The summer really heated up in December with lots of BEST SPLASH entries on Facebook and Instagram.

Congratulations to Rebecca McLevie of WA for her incredibly creative and well-choreographedBEST SPLASH video to Geronimo by Sheppard, who have also liked her entry on Facebook!

Rebecca was presented last week with her new GoPro Hero Black Edition camera from her closest Daisy Expert Peter Schmidt from Southside Pool Services in Cannington, WA. Peter shared with us that he was grateful for the opportunity for the extra promotional exposure and potentially a new customer for his store.

When we asked Rebecca how she found out about the BEST SPLASH Challenge and she said, “I like doing all this kind of stuff and did a Google search at the start of my holidays to see what online competitions were out there for me to enter over the summer… the BEST SPLASHChallenge really appealed!” Check out Rebecca’s video which has generated to date over LIKES! We’re not the only one who loved it! Well done Rebecca.

Pre-cut Daisy Pool Covers and Dig Templates


The easiest and most effective pool cover that’s exclusive to your pool – be it made of fibreglass or from a pre-manufactured mould!

Daisy’s impressive range of Pre-cut Daisy Pool Covers and Dig Templates can be tailored to your unique pool shape and size.

We use an electronic 3D measuring point capturing device to measure the pool’s shape. All measurements are recorded electronically for precision computer plotting and cutting and help us to be able to reproduce a pool cover to the exact shape of the pool. This degree of accuracy used in measuring and collecting the data guarantees a perfect fit for your pool! Check out this video.

We use this same method to cut dig templates, which are cut outs of the pool shape made out of special width builders plastic. We lay out your new pool in your backyard to find out the correct placement, mark the outside with marking paint and then once everyone is happy, begin digging!

New selections of dig template shapes are added as soon as measurements become available.

Plus – they’re easy to install and can be installed by anyone. Many pool builders utilise this pre-cut service to save their installers time, in turn reduces double handling and the need to revisit the site after they have put the pool in.

Psst… here’s what one of our retailers thinks about the Daisy pre-cut pool cover service…

Ian Dickason Sales Manager at Cookes Pool and Spas in Mildura, Victoria, one of the largest pool builders in the Murray, says they have been using the pre-cut service over the last six months and believes it saves his customers significant time, money and, most importantly, ensures the pool cover will fit perfectly.

“Daisy Pre-cut Pool Covers have a $50 + gst premium however you will recover this outlay with the cost reductions associated with the pre-cut service. If you work out how long it will take to cut it out yourself, then you can easily realise the value for money,” Ian said.

“Pre-cut pool covers are cut using a laser so they are always accurate,” he said.
