Daisy Has You Covered Over Christmas

Pre-Christmas delivery orders by Friday 16th December

Like Santa, Daisy dispatches to all corners of the country. With manufacturing facilities in Perth and Sydney, we have it covered on our end.

Less predictable are our busy Australian freight-elves! So depending where the order is being sent, as a general rule pre-Christmas deliveries should be ordered by Friday 16th December for dispatch by Tuesday 20th December.
Daisy will process and manufacture orders up to, during and after this timeframe so later orders received may well still be delivered before Christmas.

Normal delivery schedules should resume from 4th January 2017.

Christmas non closure…supporting you in your busiest times

Daisy will be closed for public holidays only. That means we will be open and available to help with information, training, orders, manufacture and dispatch over the period.

Catch up with your Daisy Area Manager talk about holiday period delivery and support in your area:

Keep in touch over Christmas through Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. We’ll do the same!

Yay! Pool Party!!!

But what does it mean for the pool?

Having a pool party over the holidays is an awesome idea – just keep in mind that having a lot of people in your pool will have an impact. This is called the bather load (really!).

Bather loads and the impact on chlorine

Even though a Daisy pool cover will stop evaporation and reduce the amount of chemicals required, suddenly adding more people to the mix will impact the amount of chlorine used.

Chlorine is ‘used’ when it is actively sanitising and cleaning your water. The more people that jump in with body oils, sunscreen, sweat, cosmetics, and let’s not go on…, the harder the chlorine has to work to get rid of the nasties in the water. This means more chlorine is being used so you need to keep an eye on the chemical levels before and after your party.

Even in salt water pools?

Salt water pools use the salt chlorinator for producing chlorine to sanitise the pool. With a lot of people in it, it most likely won’t be able to keep up with the bather load without some help.

If you are having a party a great idea is to prepare your pool for the increased bather load before the party, then check again afterwards.

If you’re not sure how to make sure your pool is ‘party ready’, talk to your local pool expert for some great advice on preparing and maintaining your water.

Daisy proves itself as Australian’s best for over 12 years

A real life view from a client on the merits of a pool cover and Daisy was published in the Pool & Spa Review.

Gordon Halnan from North Shore of Sydney has had the same Daisy pool cover and roller since 2004. He shares his valuable experience of not only the benefits of a pool cover but the peace of mind in having a quality product that he could rely on for over 12 years.

“I could easily talk the leg off an iron pot – raving about the best pool decision I ever made – getting a Daisy pool cover!” said Gordon.

“I could easily talk the leg off an iron pot – raving about the best pool decision I ever made – getting a Daisy pool cover!” said Gordon.

Evaporation was my reason

“Since November 2004 I have only put the hose into the pool once to top up the water level. Yes – once in 12 years – including the Sydney drought which was particularly bad from late 2006 to early 2008 (3 summers).”

Warmer water – unexpected benefit

“I threw out the roof top solar heating in 2006 – my gutters thank me for no more leaking salt water …”

What pool debris?

However, I’m not sure too many people can make this boast – my pool cleaner died last summer so my pool hadn’t seen a vacuum of any sort since before Easter. There were only two baskets of debris at the bottom of the pool – after six months! The pool cover did have a fair bit of rubbish on top – but it was no trouble to sweep off (and then scoop up) as I rolled up the blanket three weeks ago to get ready for summer.

Other benefits

I’m pretty sure I use less pool chemicals – sun kills chlorine and the need for pool stabiliser is also reduced because the blanket solves that problem.

Warranty

The last thing I will say is that I was very worried about spending money in 2004 and having to replace the blanket at some unknown point in the future. Given that my Daisy Pool Cover is 12 years old, I will happily tell anyone that Daisy’s guarantee is solid!”

The Daisy Guarantee

Daisy’s Managing Director, Derek Prince said “We constantly innovate with a focus on design and quality. Our products are manufactured for Australian conditions and it’s terrific to see a valued customer in Gordon getting exactly what he should be getting in a quality pool cover and roller.”

Gordon concludes, “Looking forward to another great summer of backyard swimming – brought to me by Daisy!”

This is a great testimonial that you can use to help you in the sale process. It was unsolicited and honest.
