Our team are always somewhere in Australia, working hard with our trade customers and pool owners to get the best results. We love a good challenge!

With smaller pools, a second option is to place your roller down the length of your pool.

Due to spacing, this pool also required the roller to be placed down the length of the pool.

Daisy Are Open for Business

Without inundating your inbox with yet another supplier Covid-19 update, we just wanted to reassure you that Daisy is in an operational position at this point in time.

We are doing all we need to keep our staff safe and everyone we come in contact with as safe as possible in these uncharted times.
This update is to keep you informed of what we, as a part of an essential service sector are doing to keep you supplied with pool covers and rollers.

Daisy Pool Covers is operating as normal and all orders are being processed, manufactured and dispatched in standard time frames. All of our transport companies are fully operational in normal capacity and they are taking their own social distancing measures. However, all intrastate and interstate deliveries are being completed as normal other than the possibility of a slight delay in delivery time for the new hygiene and social distancing measures.

All orders are being dispatched and delivered, regardless of where you are.Social-CV12
The only operational change is our Area Managers have been grounded and all travel has been cancelled.
All installers are continuing to complete their jobs, when we book jobs we are informing consumers that we are conducting installs without contact and maintaining our hygiene when leaving the site.

Like everyone else, we are requesting anyone that is not 100% healthy to please stay home.
The good news is all 100mm tubes are now in stock and all back orders have been dispatched.

Stock flow is reliable, and while it looks as if the China crisis is over, the supply chain has returned to normal as all imports are now flowing as normal.
Pool Covers have never been affected as they are totally Australian-made products and we have always had a reliable supply.
The only slight delay in tubes is now 125mm that are due in the first weeks of April.
All standard domestic cover and roller orders are back to the standard 2 day lead time to dispatch.

In this time of crisis and uncertainty we all need to be mindful of our cash flow, Daisy included. We will continue to run our standard trading terms however, if you are having problems with paying us please contact us early so we can work out payment plans. Daisy, along with the industry, needs reliable cash flow to survive. In saying this, we will have to be strict with our settlement terms to minimise our exposure to bad debt losses.

We thank you all for your understanding and support during these unique times.

Daisy Dam Covers

Daisy Pool Covers recently released a Dam Cover range so that property owners can stop evaporation in their dams (where the water is covered).

Daisy recommends using the Dam Cover across most of the dam surface area and letting if float around, but not covering all of the dam so that water can still flow in, and livestock can still access the water as well as allowing rain to drain off the cover and into the dam.

Dam Covers ReadyDaisy has been quite busy since the Dam Covers range launched and they recently travelled to Dwellingup, WA to install a set of Dam Covers for customer Rob Hill.

They installed 5 of the 5.2 x 5.2m dam covers onto one dam and one Rob’s second dam.

Rob knows the evaporation rate in his dams and has been looking for a way to stop evaporation for a number of years now and he came across the Daisy Dam Cover on the Daisy website. Knowing that a physical barrier will simply stop evaporation, he knew the Daisy Dam Cover would work on his property.

Daisy Dam Cover Dwellingup

Rob said the covers were well-priced and so he ordered 6 to see how they would go.

When the Daisy team arrived to install the dam covers, Rob saw how easy they went on and the coverage they gave the water. For a physical barrier that will stop the evaporation, Rob thought they looked great!

The second dam only had one cover ordered and installed but after seeing the rest of the covers on his larger dam, Rob has ordered another 2 dam covers that he will install himself, after watching the Daisy team install the others.

Rob said, “It may not solve all my water problems, but it will definitely improve my situation. I’ve been looking for a solution for many years, and I think I’ve found it.”

With the white top and black bottom, a Daisy Dam Cover is not going to heat up the water. If anything, it’s going to help with algae growth. Rob thinks with his dams that the covers will stop some of the sunlight so the algae can’t grow as much.

Rob also said, I left it a bit late. I should have really put the covers on at the end of winter to stop the water loss but hey, at least I have done it now.”

Daisy Dam Cover

When the dam fills again (and the water rises) Rob said he will be right on the phone to order more covers. With the modular system of the Daisy Dam Covers, Rob said he wants to cover what surface area he can, so he saves as much water as possible.

Rob said he has spent so much money on the dams over the last 30 years and this is the first time he has been able to find something long-lasting that will stop the evaporation.

Rob can see plenty of people going for this style of Dam Cover to stop water loss and still allow animals and farmers access to the water.

Daisy Dam Covers are robust, but you must still be careful about anything sharp underneath the covers. A simple process makes it easy for any property owner to install: unfold, set up, tether together (if you wish) and then pull into place on the dam surface.

Pool Cover and Roller Installations – 2020

During December and January, our installation team and our retailers have installed some great looking pool covers and rollers. Some have amazing locations and views, while others were intricate installations or odd shapes. No matter your pool area, we are always able to help.

Check out some of these awesome pool cover and roller installations!

Evaporation Control: Best Practices for your Swimming Pool

Daisy Pool Covers has put together some information on best practice evaporation control for swimming pools that may be of use when talking to consumers in the market.

Owning a swimming pool in Australia today can be environmentally friendly and sustainable if the right processes are put in place by pool owners. Products that are Climate Care Certified have been approved by SPASA Australia to exceed the industry benchmarks on water and energy efficiency in swimming pools.

Evaporation is the biggest cause of water loss in a swimming pool but can be controlled. Products that are certified as Smart Approved WaterMark and Climate Care Certified through SPASA advocate that the number one solution to evaporation is putting a solar cover on your pool. This will save 97% of your pool’s water loss through evaporation.

The good news is that there is also a way reduce evaporation even when your pool cover is off or you cannot have a pool cover. Products such as AquaSaver put a non-toxic, ultra-thin invisible barrier on the pool surface, reducing water and heat loss. Liquid evaporation control is not as efficient as a physical pool cover, but it will still save some water when a pool cover can’t be used or only part of your pool is covered by a solar cover.

For best practice swimming pool evaporation control, an AquaSaver style product is best used in conjunction with an existing solar pool cover to help save water when the cover is off. If not all of the pool can be covered (for example, an odd shape) or no pool cover can be used, the invisible liquid barrier can save you up to 30% of evaporation on your pool.

For those with mesh, debris pool covers, this style of product will also help reduce evaporation and heat loss through the mesh.

There are many options for evaporation control in your swimming pool but always ensure your solution is Climate Care Certified by SPASA and has Smart Approved WaterMark certification for best practice evaporation reduction.

Summer Payback Winner – December

Our most recent Summer Payback winner has been chosen, and she couldn’t be happier!

Nicky from Carramar WA, purchased her 525B Pool Cover from Gareth at Jim’s Pool Care Carramar. Pictured below with Gareth from Jim’s and John from Daisy Pool Covers.

When we spoke with Nicky, she explained that they had never had a pool before moving into their current home. The pool needed a little bit of love and care to get it back to looking better than it did.

Nicky knew nothing about looking after a pool as she has never done this before. So, she called Jim’s Pool Care as she felt it was better for someone to come over and look at her pool.

Gareth from Jim’s Pool Care explained that if you are going to be using the pool constantly over a long period of time that it would be better to use Daisy Pool Cover, as they are the best in quality but also the best in support and services.

Nicky says that choosing Jim’s Pool Care and a Daisy Pool Cover was the best thing she has ever done as her pool looks great but has also learnt so much about how to look after her pool. Considering that she never knew anything about Solar Covers before and having Gareth recommend using Daisy, Nicky can see that it was the right choice for her family’s needs.

If that wasn’t a great enough outcome, Nicky went on to say that she never has won anything ever before! When Daisy Pool Covers told her that she had won her money back for her pool cover she just couldn’t believe it.

“Who gives anybody their money back by simply registering their warranty when purchasing their product,” Nicky said. She had to confirm with her husband that this was correct and not some sort of scam!

When her suspicions were made obsolete, Nicky was so happy that a company that she knew nothing about until recently were happy to giver her the purchase price back. Nicky is very happy that Daisy came through very quickly with their promise of what was won and she couldn’t be happier and has thanked everyone at Daisy Pool Covers involved.

Interesting Installations #2

In the lead up to December the team was busy out there installing new pool covers and rollers all around Australia. Some are straightforward, others are more of a challenge and we love that!

Upgraded Below Ground Box Drive Ring

Due to recent feedback and product testing, we have upgraded the Below Ground Box Drive Ring. We now have V1 of the cast stainless steel drive ring (part #378).

We are still working on the geometry to make the stainless steel drive gear and ring smoother, however the parts are rock solid now. As always with Daisy, if you experience any issues with a product we will fix it, so please let us know if you need any parts.

With the cast stainless steel drive gear (part #360) and cast stainless steel drive ring (part #378) we have been unable to destructive test the units and so we at Daisy are extremely happy with the product. The Below Ground Boxes are so popular that we have made the units even more reliable and we are always working hard to lift capacity and holding stock of all sizes in the Sydney factory, enabling us to dispatch almost immediately.

Daisy Pool Covers has recently updated the castors on the FM and LP Mobile Rollers. The castor wheels now use eurothane tyres to help keep the roller on the ground.

All new FM and LP Rollers are being supplied with the new and improved brake castor.

Note: The castor pin sizes are different, if you need to replace new castors (part #379) the pins (part #380) need to be changed as well.
