Daisy Experts’ Yearbook 2020/21

The latest Daisy Experts’ Yearbook is on its way to you all, but we thought we’d give you an overview and update on what’s new.

The team at Daisy Pool covers has worked hard to minimise price movements, with no price rises for the past two years. While all Thermal and Solar covers are 100% Australian-made, we have over the last 2 years had price increases on raw materials, staff and freight.

Here are a few updates for the latest Yearbook:

  • New simplified pricing for the whole 525 Solar Pool Cover range to make selling even easier.
  • Introducing the 350 illusion solar cover. This is a “clear” product that picks up the pool’s surface colour without introducing other colours to the backyard colour scheme. This is not an absolutely clear product, it is the optimal thickness for a see-through product that still may have a whiteish look from certain angles. It’s the perfect product to use with Daisy’s Bio Pool Cover Cleaner to keep it looking new.
  • ThermoTech is now quoted in square meters to make closing sales quicker and easier.
  • We will shortly launch a new WinterKleen Grey colour. This will complement the WinterKleen Tan that was introduced this year for that elegant look to suit any backyard landscape.

We are also pleased to release the new Commercial Caddy Pro as well as a Commercial WinterKleen option, both part of our ever expanding Daisy Commercial range.

For more information, please download our latest yearbook, or contact your Daisy Area Manager with any questions.

 

Installations and How to Clean Your Pool Cover

We’ve been installing some great-looking pool covers recently, but our team have noticed this time of year they also can get a bit of dirt and debris build up. This is why we launched the Daisy Bio Pool Cover Cleaner last year.

The Bio Pool Cover Cleaner will help protect your pool all year round from dreaded bio-film building up on your pool surfaces, including your pool cover. The Bio Pool Cover Cleaner is perfect for pool covers and removes debris, oils, scale and dirt from the cover, and any build-up bio-film (on which algae grows) on your pool’s waterline, equipment or surface.

All you need to do is spray on and instantly scrub the pool cover using Daisy’s Aqua Fingers Pool Cover Cleaner or a pool broom.

WinterKleen Pool Cover Colour Range

Autumn and Winter usually bring a lot of gusty winds as well as additional leaves to our backyard and pool areas.

WinterKleen Debris Covers are the ideal choice for pools that experience excess garden and leaf debris. These pool covers are installed over your pool so that any debris that’s collected on the cover can be blown off or easily swept away.

Remember, the Daisy WinterKleen range work well in conjunction with the UltraDome™ bubble solar pool cover over the winter months. If you’re in an extra-windy area and a solar cover isn’t suitable, the Daisy AquaSaver also works well in conjunction with a WinterKleen cover as it will help save you up to 30% of water evaporation exiting your pool through the mesh cover.

Now available in four colours – Black, Blue, Green and Tan (all pictured below), you’ll be able to easily find one that suits your pool area aesthetics!

Sealed Air and Daisy Win Bronze at PIDA Awards

Sealed Air and Daisy Win Bronze at PIDA Awards 6

The Packaging Innovation and Design Awards were held last Wednesday in an online awards ceremony.

Daisy Pool Covers and Sealed Air were a finalist in the PIDA Design Innovation of the Year Award Domestic & Household Category.

Daisy and Sealed Air also won a Bronze award for the Domestic & Household Category ‘Outside of the Box Innovation’ Award.

Being part of these awards is such a great recognition for Daisy Pool Covers and Sealed Air, and yes, we’re so excited about our award-winning pool cover product.

By adapting Sealed Air’s bubble wrap technology over the years, we’ve been able to deliver so many sustainability benefits like conserving water and heat for the humble swimming pool.

The stats on heat and evaporation savings are huge!

A standard backyard swimming pool can lose up to 10,000 litres of water per month and we can stop that with this simple solution: a Daisy Pool Cover.

But, not all bubbles are the same. Daisy Pool Covers and Sealed Air have worked closely to develop the UltraDome™ bubble that is designed for longevity and performance.

However, we are only covering about a third of Australian swimming pools so we have a way to go yet! We will be using this award to highlight the positive environmental and sustainable impact and credibility of our pool covers to all pool owners.

Daisy’s New Quote Tool for Pool Technicians

One way to maximise, or find, sales opportunities is to constantly remind your customers of all the products you supply, Daisy being one of them.

We have developed this quote form for you to leave behind after your site visit if they don’t have a pool cover or if their pool cover is coming to the end of its life.

Don’t write the pool size on it, just write the quote. Hopefully they will ask you why you left it there. This is a way to generate conversation with the customer and sell more products.

This is an ideal activity to complete in slower times, not only to start conversations and sell, but also as a great way to build your customer database with accurate information of pool size (i.e. pool volume).

Instead of guessing, or taking your customers’ pool size guess, you now have the accurate measurements so you can give better advice and service with accurate pool volumes. I bet we have all had experiences where you are giving advice and doses for a 40,000 litre pool only to find out it is a 6.5 x 3m pool!

You can print these forms out if you want to use it immediately or contact your Daisy Area Manager to get some sent out to you.

Pool Cover and Roller Installations

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!

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.
