Daisy Pool Covers and Sealed Air: working together for over 30 years

While Sealed Air’s Bubble Wrap air pockets provide cushioning and protection, it also acts as an efficient insulator. A research program between Sealed Air and Daisy Pool Covers™ led to the development of the UltraDome™ cell shaped pool cover that addresses the sustainability challenges and economic burdens of commercial and domestic pool ownership.

Sealed Air and Daisy Pool Covers™ development that led to the delivery of the UltraDome™ bubble and recent research that has enabled 15 tonne of post industrial waste to be returned and repurposed into new pool covers.

This innovation is a now finalist at the 2020 Packaging Innovation and Design Awards – Household Category.

Pool ownership – the sustainable way

Pool covers are integral to managing your pool sustainably, but only 1 in 3 pool owners invest in a pool cover.

Learn 3 reasons why the UltraDome™ bubble addresses the resource, cost and time challenges of pool ownership.

Save Water, Reduce Costs

Each year, pools lose more than 1.5 times their total water capacity due to evaporation. Despite Australia’s water crisis and conservation efforts, 69% of Aussie pool owners use their garden hose to top up their pools. That’s a huge 71,365,320,000L of water used to top up pools each year. Daisy Pool Covers reduce water evaporation by 97% so you can reduce your dependency on our water supplies and save time by not having to top up daily.

Save Electricity, Reduce Costs

While the sun and warmer climates contribute to warming your pool, you invest in a huge amount of energy, time and infrastructure to keep your pool at its optimum temperature. Without sufficient insulation, heat quickly dissipates. Daisy Pool Covers trap the sun’s heat and can warm pools by 8◦C using the sun’s natural energy. This means more pool swimming days, more fun and less dependency on heating.

Easy Maintenance, Save Time, Reduce Costs

Maintaining the right water chemistry and hygiene is important, but it shouldn’t be onerous. When chlorine is added to pool water, it returns to its natural gaseous state and escapes through evaporation. So in addition to replenishing water supply, you also need to replenish the chlorine content. Daisy Pool Covers reduce evaporation by 97% and that means stable chlorine concentrations over time, less maintenance and reduced chlorine usage.

Daisy Commercial Caddy Pro – Portable Drive System

Daisy Commercial Caddy Pro is a commercial pool solution that has been designed and built as a robust portable drive to recover, and deploy, single or multiple commercial Thermal Foam or Solar pool covers onto Daisy Commercial Roller systems.

The Caddy Pro is a fully self contained, stand alone Stainless Steel console that suits any commercial pool from a single cover and roller, to multiple pools (e.g. 50m and 25m within the same complex) with multiple cover and roller systems.

The Caddy Pro’s 24v heavy duty internal batteries will usually last for weeks of work however, as there is an inbuilt battery charging system (powered by normal 10A GPO), we advise to simply park and place the Caddy Pro on charge when it is not in use.

With tilt and overload protection, along with normally off switching (the unit will only work when a button is pressed, it will stop when you release the button), this simple yet robust system is designed to make every pool operator’s life easier and reduce OH&S risk that may occur with manual roller usage.

Simple height adjustment allows the operator to fine tune the drive height to suit rollers within the surrounding pool area. The Caddy Pro can be used for all Daisy Commercial rollers with a 20mm square drive on them and can be built to suit the Daisy Commercial Under Bench Rollers’ lower height.

The Caddy Pro drives forward and reverse with the push of a button so once it is on the drive of the roller, simply press the button to recover the pool cover back on to the roller.

The Caddy Pro console handle has been ergonomically designed to make lining up the internal square drive easy. The drive drum slides onto the external square drive of the roller while using the simple height adjustment then, with the press of a button, you are recovering the pool cover in no time at all.

Deploying the pool cover is a breeze!

  1. Attach the haul cord to the cover
  2. Take the Caddy Pro to the opposite end of the pool, approximately in the centre of the cover (2-3 metres away from the pool water edge)
  3. Feed the haul cord under the bottom idler roller then up to the back of the drive drum and hook the haul cord over the cut out finger of the drive drum.
  4. Then, simply push the button to haul the cover onto the pool. The recover drum simply slides out to the free wheel so you can remove the haul cord ready to deploy the next cover.

Daisy Dam Covers’ Latest Installation

The Daisy Pool Covers team recently installed a set of dam covers at a wastewater treatment plant in Kenilworth, QLD. 

The Daisy Dam Cover is 30m x 50m made up of 6 modules each 7.8m wide by 30m long. 

The Daisy Commercial team made the sizes so that they could be made and then handled offsite and onsite. The customer then tethered the covers together and manually pulled the covers onto the dam.

To accommodate with the gas build-up from the waste water, Daisy came up with a simple solution to let the gas escape through strategically placed, reinforced holes in the cover and modules for the water line between the covers.

The reinforced holes do let some water through, but the customer wanted the gas build-up to be able to vent into the atmosphere.

The customer had tried a non-buoyant plastic film before, but said it was cheap and did not work.

After looking for a solution like this for quite some time, Chris said he was very happy with the finished job and how the Daisy Pool Covers team were able to make the covers with a tight turnaround.
