Below Ground Cover Boxes a Big Hit!

Since their launch earlier this year, the Daisy Below Ground Boxes have been selling extremely well.

For those wanting a clutter-free pool area or have a smaller pool yard, the Below Ground Box is a great investment and is so easy to use, see our new video here:

Customers can add value to their home while hiding their cover and maximising the space in their backyard.

Daisy’s Below Ground Boxes are full aluminium with anodised aluminium lids and come with a 5-year pro-rata warranty.

As the trend turns to more stylish pool cover options, we’ve also got the Under Bench Roller that allows poolside seating as well as hiding your pool cover and roller! Click here for more info on the UBR, pictured.

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!

 

The Extra Mile in Quality and Service

Over the years, Daisy has covered a lot of pools, refining our processes to make it easier to order, install and use. We’ve also added services, products and finishes providing greater flexibility, and to go the extra mile in quality and service.

Some of the extras services we can provide are:

The special fit for special shapes & sizes – custom covers cut to any size, shape, water line or upturn.

Like a lot of things, it starts with preparation.

  1. Once we know the pool measurements and type, a 3D point capturing device is used to plot for fibreglass pools or a 2-point measuring system to triangulate a pool for greater accuracy.
  2. The plan is then emailed for approval
  3. Once approved, all measurements re-plotted and pre-cut using a robotic pre-cut machine. The cover is now ready.

The benefits:

  • Easier installation (even with limited access to the pool)
  • Better fit to the pool.

Edge bind with a PVC coloured edges to one, two, three sides or all around.

  • Looks more aesthetically pleasing
  • Protects any edges that get extra wear
  • Stops tearing if there’s a cut e.g. for a hand rail.

Edge bind with a black woven edge.

  • Easier to handle
  • Looks better

Wind skirt with a black woven edge – with a lead core rope encased to pull the edge of the pool cover just under water.

  • Stops the wind lifting the cover (especially for multiple covers on one pool or covers that don’t cover the whole pool)
  • Holds the cover in place if there’s an infinity or overflow edge (the wind skirting sits below the waterline with the water flowing through the woven webbing)

And more!

We can also:

  • Build in pull cords to fold over sections
  • Attach over covers
  • Add hinge foam for step areas
  • Reinforce or sew extra material as wear strips.
  • Install floats
  • Build in pockets with harnesses and commercial haul cords.

Quality and Service

Daisy uses only the very best Teflon thread to protect against failures. All sewing generally outlasts our pool covers!

November Daisy Dab winner announced!

Jess Turner from NSW takes out the December Daisy DAB competition winning a cool Parrot Drone and $200 worth of pool supplies from Splash’s Pools Tuggerah!

Jess went above and beyond submitting multiple very creative entries and getting over 140 votes too for her efforts. At the presentation of her prizes at Splash’s, Jess said that she had a heap of fun with this because she loved photography and that our Daisy challenges are a great avenue to explore more photography. It gave her the challenge to set up her photos and videos.

Jess’s dad, John, said that she had a lot of fun and put a lot of time and effort into the entries so great for her to win a prize from our local pool shop.

Andrew Clubb from Splash’s Pools Tuggerah said “how good is Jess winning a Daisy challenge twice! What are the chances! Regular customers have had a heap of fun with the photos. Thanks Daisy for having a challenge that helps people have fun around a pool…because that is what pools are all about, fun!”
