Below Ground Box Winder Special

From now until Christmas, Daisy are running a Below Ground Box upgrade AND a FREE pool cover with all BGB purchases through your stores!

We have also released a BGB Winder upgrade. There was an issue with our winder mechanism on larger pools so we have fixed it.

The revolutionary new Vertical Winder is now mounted at the maximum BGB width, giving you not only more roller tube to the box size (there is now an extra 200mm of roller tube in the box), but also a vertical winder that has a cast stainless drive gear that is held into the drive gear mesh with the specially designed mounting.

The added advantage of the new Vertical Winder is the ability to maximise roller tube length as well as making the winder side totally reversible from end to end simply by removing 4 bolts and spinning the roller to change drive sides.

 

So, now the simple installation of digging a trench and installing the BGB just got easier! No need to concrete in and no need to worry about drive ends, just order the BGB needed and Daisy will quickly dispatch the unit to you.

Stock is planned to be held in both Perth and Sydney factories for immediate dispatch once ordered.

Special offer for all BGB orders until Christmas: Free 400B pool cover with every BGB ordered!

Simply order the BGB needed with the pool cover size and Daisy will charge the BGB and supply the pool cover at no charge.

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

SPASA Expo: Feedback on the Daisy UBR and Below Ground Box

We have had a busy start to 2019 with a string of SPASA Expos across the country and we’ve had some very interesting feedback along the way!

Interest in and sales of our Under Bench Rollers and Below Ground Boxes has been on the rise in the past year and we have seen this interest during our recent Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide SPASA Expos. People who are building a new pool tend to head for the Below Ground Box (BGB) because they are doing major works around the pool before paving being installed. People with an existing pool usually head for the Under Bench Roller (UBR) to get some poolside seating in and around the pool area while hiding the roller system. This has been perfect for those with limited space around the pool.

We have found an increasing amount of new pool owners initially wanting the BGB until they understand what the UBR is. The reasoning is that people say, ‘I don’t want to see the roller’. We totally understand the sentiment and discuss the lid options with them. Because the BGB is usually in a high traffic area, we only do anodised aluminium instead of powder coated colours to avoid scratching. When the anodised aluminium gets scratched you can’t notice it but if the powder coating gets scratched all you will see is the silver underneath.

While there are a lot of BGB sales we see a lot of people are opting for the UBR because it gives them the ‘extra’ reason for being with versatility and seating plus wood look colour options for aesthetics. We are seeing a great increase in both sales so they are both excellent options for hiding your pool cover and roller while swimming.

It all comes down to personal preference, there is no right or wrong answer here!

Summer Payback October Winner!

We are steaming ahead with production during this busy season!

Thank you to everyone for supporting the Summer Payback campaign. We recently announced the October winner, who purchased their Daisy Pool Cover from Clark Rubber in Cannington, WA.

Congratulations to Ruth who has had her pool for 30 years, and her trusty WinterKleen is still going but Ruth wanted to enjoy warmer water so she could enjoy her pool for more of the year. Erin from Clark Rubber helped her decide on a solar cover. Funnily enough, Erin chased after Ruth when she left to remind her to register her warranty to go in the running to win her purchase back.

Ruth said, “I’m an old fart and don’t know the first thing about technology but from what I can remember the process was very easy to enter, and now look – I won!”

Congratulations again to Ruth, we hope you enjoy your extended swimming season with your new Daisy Pool Cover.

The Summer Payback campaign will run until the end of February 2019, with four more monthly winners to be announced!

Zahlia Wins the DaisyDab Competition, alongside 3 other monthly winners

Zahlia Hartley from the Sunshine Coast has won the 2017-18 Daisy DAB challenge winning an iPhone 8 (her choice!). Concluding on Valentine’s Day, it was a hard fought challenge, with Zahlia taking out the competition with 853 votes over summer!

More about the Challenge

For the summer of 2017/2018, Daisy launched the Daisy Dab Challenge! There were three simple steps… All you needed to do to enter was to do a DAB by the pool, submit your entry and ‘Share the Love’ on a voting platform.

The competition was hard fought with entrants sending in their most creative entries to be in to win monthly prizes of a Parrot Drone and $200 worth of pool supplies. However to win the grand prize of an iPhone 8 or Galaxy 8 it was all about who had the highest number of votes!

How Zahlia won

Zahlia had found out about the competition from her mum who used to work at a pool shop in Buderim. Zahlia’s family still go there for their pool supplies, and on a recent visit they learned about the Daisy Challenge through some point of sale material and encouraged Zahlia to enter the.

Zahlia’s creativity sparked into action, and she had the idea to create a video at her little sister’s birthday party! Synchronised DAB’ing was born!

And the deal? Zahlia had a pact with her younger sister that if she won, her sister would get her old phone… win-win!

From the moment she submitted her entry, Zahlia, her sister, and their family constantly ‘Shared the Love’ and worked with their networks to accumulate an enormous 853 votes in total! Great work!

The competition overall was a tough one, with a few strong contenders. Zahlia said that she was “so happy that all of her hard work and sharing so much actually paid off!”

Three worthy monthly winners

The Challenge attracted many creative entries – three of which were rewarded with brand new Drones and spending money!

The three monthly winners were:

  1. November 2017: Jess from NSW
  2. December 2017: Troy from QLD
  3. January – mid-February 2018: Brie from NSW

Congratulations everyone. Enjoy your new iPhone8, drones and spending money!
