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.

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!

Would You Like Fries With That?

You know when you order fast food and the attendant asks “would you like fries with that?” This also applies to the pool industry. Asking if your customer would like a refit kit or an over cover is just like that!

Add-on sales not only help you sell more, it can also save you and your customers time, giving better service and increase the life of their covers and make life easier.

Installation made easy

A refit kit is a great add-on sale because there’s a clear benefit for customers. It saves time and makes life easier (for everyone!), making the installation of a new pool cover to a roller a breeze. The kit has everything you or your customer needs. Keep a few in stock so you can make it even easier to sell or order at any time – Daisy Part Number #092.

What about the white over cover?

While we are talking about covers to existing rollers, how is the white over cover looking? Cover connection kits (and over covers) are supplied with every new roller, but it may be time for the over cover to be replaced.

  • Is there an over cover being used at all?
  • Does the customer know how to use it?
  • Has the white over cover simply come to the end of its life?

Here’s how you will know (if it’s come to the end of its life). Simply hold the over cover up to the sun. Can you see through the over cover where it gets folded? If you can, it means that the sun can get through and damage the pool cover. It’s time for a replacement! Order the right size by measuring the tube length of the roller.

The white over cover will help your customers get longer life from their pool cover. Want to hear more – feel free to ask us.

Thank You Daisy Installers

We love hearing back from our retailers and consumers. Recently we received a couple of wonderful notes about our installers.

Our Sydney and Perth installers do a brilliant job installing pool covers and rollers at customers’ homes. They do the physical labour, answer technical questions and act as the ‘face’ of Daisy.

Here are a couple of recent testimonials that we would love to share about our unsung heroes at Daisy.

The Perfect Fit with Pre Cut and Dig Templates

If you have a pre-manufactured fibreglass style pool, Daisy can pre-cut the pool cover to size so you don’t have to.

 

Take the risk out of the equation. 

Daisy Dig Templates are useful in helping to accurately set out the pool location and mark out the dig on fibreglass pools.

Sales / Dig Templates are used to position the pool in the yard to get the sizing and positioning just right for your customer. It saves time and second guessing as your customer will be able to see the pool and what it will look like in its actual setting.

It’s a great sales tool as well as it guarantees a perfect fit for the pool cover – an easier sell!

 

What colour would you like?

Dig Templates are traditionally black in colour and made out of durable polyethylene (PE) material.  Because black is sometimes difficult to visualise as pool water, Daisy also has them in blue!

Pre-cut pool covers guarantee your customers a 100% perfect fit

Watch this video on how pre-cut pool covers are cut.

What can you see in the video

Firstly, a dig template  being cut out of single width heavy duty 200um builders plastic. These are normally for the water line and the coping however your customers can request any size. Dig templates work to get the exact pool location both at time of sale and digging the pool.

Next, you’ll see a ThermoTech foam spa pre-cut cover being cut out perfectly round. Then finally, you’ll see a solar pool pre-cut cover being cut out. Using the data we have, we can manipulate the pool size to supply a pool cover waterline or with a variance of different length upturns.

A 100% perfect fit using precision technology.

Daisy has been collecting valuable customer data on fibreglass and pre-manufactured pool shapes for nearly a decade. This extensive data archive combined with using our precision CAD technology allow us to supply quality pre-cut pool covers to perfectly fit a new pool installation, regardless of unique shape and size requirements.

Whether it is a pool cover to fit waterline, up the side of the pool or with a variance of different length upturns; we can easily manipulate data to suit your customer requirements with 100% accuracy.

Our CAD technology shows the actual cutting format to help us manipulate the data like in the screenshots below.

Pre-cut covers save time in double handling. Not to mention that they give a perfect fit. The installer can install the cover onto the roller right after the pool is installed, even when there is no water in the pool! They don’t take us long to dispatch either.

In the time you’ve made yourself a cup of coffee, we’ve already cut, rolled and packaged up your customer’s pre-cut cover ready to be dispatched and sent from our warehouse. Get your customer to order a pre-cut cover today!

3 reasons your customer should choose a pre-cut pool cover

Latest pre-cut technology makes it easier all year round especially in the cooler, wetter months.

  1. You can sell more.

  2. You can make more money.

  3. A shorter turnaround process – can be all done in one visit to site!

Daisy’s pre-cut technology allows the installer to install your customer’s pool, connect their cover to roller, and leave the set up on their roller all without water in their pool. Eliminating the need to return to the site to measure up and cut to shape saves your customer a substantial amount of time, money and double handling as it will all be taken care of in the first instance.

Pre-cut pool covers are the easiest and most effective covers that can be tailored to your customer’s unique pool shape and size. They provide the perfect fit for pools made from both fibreglass or from pre-manufactured moulds.

We use an electronic 3D measuring point capturing device to measure the pool’s shape. All measurements are recorded electronically for precision computer plotting and cutting and help us to be able to reproduce a pool cover to the exact shape of the pool. This degree of accuracy used in measuring and collecting the data guarantees a perfect fit for your customer’s pool! Check out this video.
