We recently developed additional material to assist our partners in asking the right questions when customers are in their stores or speaking with them.

Knowing what questions to ask and when will help open up the conversation and be able to convey the right information at the right time.

Daisy Completes New SPASA Training

Getting the best out of our team to give you the best service!

 

Daisy has always believed in constant and consistent advertising and marketing, and this is the bit you see. We also have a solid commitment to constant product and staff development.

The Daisy sales team continually embarks on personal development and training to keep motivated and up to date so we can deliver better results for our trade customers.

Daisy recently turned to our peak industry body that is our industry RTO to design a tailored Sales delivery module.

Wednesday 19th June saw a 7-hour training module delivered by Luke from SPASA Australia and I (Derek) have to highly compliment Luke and SPASA Australia for such good content. The whole team got so much industry related training that cut through the theory to put us in location at the coal face, giving us better outcomes for our customers.

I can’t recommend this enough, SPASA Australia delivers positive, real-life training that is relevant.

With further SPASA Australia development modules coming, all of us at Daisy are looking forward to further learning to help you more.

SPASA and Daisy are always looking to help customers from domestic pool shops, to builder and commercial markets, helping them to sell more through positive experiences and real training in B2B2C.

We have uncovered many more techniques, hints and pieces of advice to help you with your customers and Daisy products.

Here at Daisy, we are all pumped, looking forward to helping you expand your markets and helping you sell more. We may have just started our ‘off season’ but the Daisy team is flat out preparing for the season, just wait to see what we have in store for you!

It’s going to be a great season for us all.

Water Restrictions for Sydney Commence June 1

Water restrictions will be enforced in Sydney on June 1st for the first time in a decade.

We have the following information from SPASA NSW on the water restrictions announced by the State Government:

The Premier of NSW has announced Level 1 Water Restrictions will commence June 1 under the state’s Metropolitan Water Plan even as the Sydney Desalination Plant ramps up towards full capacity.

Sydney Water have said the city’s dams have fallen faster over the past two years than during the Millennium Drought, with inflows at levels not seen since the 1940s.

Water restrictions will apply to everyone in Sydney, the Blue Mountains and the Illawarra.  This includes both residents and businesses.

SPASA has been working hard with Sydney Water to ensure they have a better understanding of how the swimming pool and spa industry operates as well as advocate to limit the impact on swimming pool and spa businesses and owners.

Click here for the Ministerial Release.

Level 1 water restrictions:

  • You can’t leave a hose unattended, unless you are topping up a pool
  • You will need a permit to fill a new or renovated pool or spa greater than 10,000 litres. Having a pool cover that is *endorsed by the Swimming Pool and Spa Association of Australia (SPASA) is a condition of the permit 
  • Your hose must have a trigger nozzle, wand or other attachment with an instant on-off mechanism, and you need to water your lawns and gardens before 10am or after 4pm
  • The use of sprinklers and watering systems is not permitted, except for drip irrigation systems or automated watering systems with controllers that automatically adjust watering details based on changing soil moisture or weather conditions
  • Hosing hard surfaces like paths and driveways is not permitted. However, you can always spot clean areas for health and safety reasons, or in an emergency
  • You can only wash vehicles, boats and buildings with a bucket, a hose fitted with a trigger nozzle or high-pressure cleaning equipment

* Endorsed means under SPASA’s Climate Care Certified program.

Level 1 exclusions:

Exclusions are a list of water sources and uses where restrictions don’t apply. There is no need to apply for these, and they available to everyone. The following are excluded from the restrictions:

  • Topping up swimming pools to replace water lost through normal use, including evaporation
  • Recycled water (from non-potable pipework)
  • Greywater
  • Bore water and water taken from rivers
  • Rainwater (as long as the tank/dam isn’t topped up from, or switched to, the drinking water supply)
  • Water parks
  • Water used for firefighting, testing and related activities
  • Water used for dust suppression & concrete mixing
  • Auto (drive through) car washes
  • Flushing boat engines and using hoses with trigger nozzles/high pressure cleaning equipment to clean bilges and essential safety components on boat trailers such as brakes and wheels
  • Drip irrigation systems, or automated watering systems incorporating soil moisture sensors
  • Watering of newly laid turf by handheld hose or sprinkler for a period of 7 days from date of installation

Commercial Installations

We’ve had some great installations over the last few months, some very different to what we normally do!

Mango Hill, Queensland

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We installed a Power Below Ground Box to this pool area, making the most of the limited space around the pool. This is the first installation of a Daisy Power Below Ground Pool Cover Box!

North Lodge Swimming Acadamy

With such a large pool, we put together multiple Under Bench Rollers on castors so make these UBRs mobile!

White and Brittle – When a Pool Cover has had its Day

Why has the pool cover gone white and brittle? This is an image of an extreme example of a pool cover that has been damaged by chlorine that has gone white and brittle. It will even start to disintegrate when it reaches the end of its life span. Daisy’s Ultradome technology helps it kick on but what’s next?

See the cover pictured? It has been so badly bleached with chlorine that it has gone almost completely white!

Trademarked technology working to the end

Daisy’s trademarked Ultradome technology ensures that there are not weak points if properly installed and used. Without any weak points, the Daisy Ultradome wears out evenly so the cover continues to be effective, even in situations like this when the cover has been drastically over chlorinated.

Notice how the bubbles on the underside of the pool cover have not ‘popped’ out the base of the bubble leaving tell-tale little disk’s in the pool? With the trademarked technology, they have worn away evenly giving it the longest possible usable life.

Eventually however, all pool covers will have to be replaced irrespective of Daisy’s quality. For further information, please contact us.

SPASA & Daisy – Working for the Pool Industry

Daisy is a proud supporter and member of the Swimming Pool and Spa Association (SPASA); a body committed to improving and protecting the welfare of the entire swimming pool & spa industry.

Years of research and experience have been the foundation of our market leadership in Australia, supported by our accreditations and awards. Being a part of the SPASA means that Daisy is accredited to help train, educate and promote through the industry and the consumer community.

One example of how we do this is by attending the Pool & Spa Expos. In early February, we attended the SPASA Pool & Spa Expo in Melbourne providing us with the opportunity to meet and share with our Daisy network of retailers our latest products, provide tips and help in all areas including challenging installs and assisting with some tricky quotes too.

Daisy will be attending the SPASA Pool and Spa Expos in Sydney in March and Brisbane in May. Come over and say hi!

Daisy to Exhibit SPASA Pool & Spa Expos Nationally

Helping our clients to sell more will be the focus of Daisy’s exhibits. We will be at the Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland shows showcasing new and key products, answering any questions, providing sales tips and assisting with quotes.

You can find us at:
SPASA Pool and Spa Expo (Vic) February 2 – 4
SPASA Pool Spa and Outdoor Living Expo (NSW) March 3 – 4
Pool Spa and Outdoor Living Expo (QLD) May 26 – 27

We don’t sell direct to the public but we do support our retailers on the ground with brochures, POS, promotions, online and social marketing and more! At the SPASA shows, we will be showcasing new and key products, and will have our experts on hand to help you upsell and close sales!

Ask us for help with quotes, product information or even just come over to say hello! Get handy hints on what to upsell and when (like a refit kit or a new white over cover).

Just another way Daisy helps you sell more. See you soon! <3
