How much for a pool cover?

Daisy Expert best answer: What are you trying to achieve?

This #1 question from our customers only has one reply… That’s great, so what are you trying to achieve?

Before we blindly quote a price, it is up to us as Experts to find out what solution our customer is after by spending time with them to find out what they really want.

After all that’s what they are looking for and are coming in to your store to ask for advice… not the cheapest price!

Quality time spent together to gather enough information to provide solutions is how to win sales. No, we don’t mean at the cost of driving price down; it’s so we can be on the same wave length as our customer.

Ask questions! Query your customer to find out their desires or problems so you can tailor your response and recommendation. By doing this, you will have your customer saying ‘yes, I want that one’ before any price is mentioned.

Query your customer until they divulge what they want, they don’t know how to buy from you so the ‘how much for a pool cover’ question is not asking you to give a dollar amount, it is a question stating that they have a need for something from us and now it is up to us to fulfil that need or desire.

Get the lowdown on our pool cover range shake up

With the introduction of Daisy’s new Titanium pool cover range and the huge consumer acceptance for this new cover technology, Daisy has embarked on a product range shake up!

Over the last few months, we have been hard at work making some cool new improvements and changes (that your customers will love) to our pool cover range, including a brand new non-heating cover…

Solar Cover Product Upgrade

S8 Silver BackNow gone!

S8 Green – Upgraded to Titanium Green (TG+)

S8 Solar Screen – Daisy has unlocked the next generation of non-heating pool covers and is now upgrading this cover to a brand new reflective, non-heating pool cover – Series 8 Titanium Cool (S8 TC)

The unique reflective properties means the new S8TC will reflect the sun’s heat while not absorbing it into the pool cover material, so it transits virtual zero sunlight and heat into the water. 

Why this non-heating technology is better:

  • Total sun block out
  • Evaporation and cooling control
  • Modern colour looking better (and cooler) for longer.

More information on this new product to come! A complete shake up of standard blue pool covers is also imminent so stay tuned. Daisy is aiming to make a product range that is clear and concise to make supplying a Daisy as easy as possible.

The UltraDome story

The UltraDome story

Daisy’s search for the perfect bubble

ONCE UPON A TIME, Aussie families had no other choice but to use pool covers that used to fail badly and leave little pool cover circles in the pool when they came to the end of their life. This pre-UltraDome bubble shape created unwanted weak points causing premature disintegration of their entire pool covers.

Australia’s favourite pool cover, Daisy, knew something had to change. In search of the perfect bubble size, shape and material, Daisy underwent years of pool cover modelling, testing and analysis.

Some years later Daisy introduced the award-winning UltraDome bubble!

The special UltraDome bubble shape gave the ultimate material flow during manufacture and consistent thickness throughout the bubble and also eliminated the weak points. With 1/3 of total material in the top layer and 2/3 in the bottom layer, these covers were stronger and lasted much longer than other standard ones.

Even though Aussie families were satisfied with the performance of their pool cover bubbles, Daisy came to realise how important it was in allowing the sun’s energy to pass easily through the cover to enter the water. “Ah huh! With less energy being used to pass through, the more energy there would be available to warm the water,” mused Daisy.

With this, Daisy went back to the workshop to invent a new transparent bubble to maximise heat and retention. After much toil, the very latest in pool cover technology was brought to the industry by Daisy this year with the launch of UltraDome+. The difference being that both top and bottom layers could allow maximum sun energy to pass through without interruption.

UltraDome+ was a winning layer combination as only UltraDome+ bubbles showcased a unique clear top and a specially formulated translucent bottom. These pool covers complemented contemporary backyard landscapes and now continue to be a premium choice for Aussie pool owners. And to this day, the UltraDome+ Titanium range has been a hot seller with huge demand. Daisy loved seeing the photos of happy customers with their new Titanium pool cover installations being posted on Facebook and positive feedback being emailed directly. Aussie pools were transformed with the new bubble technology and everyone lived happily ever after. THE END!

Latest updates

Read here for more on the latest Daisy pool cover range changes:

S8 SB Silver Back: as this range has become obsolete it has been discontinued due to huge demand for the latest UltraDome+ Titanium range.

S8 Green: The standard Series 8 Green has been superseded and is now being supplied as Titanium Green.

S8 SS Solar Screen: With the UltraDome+ Titanium technology, Daisy is currently designing and testing a product upgrade of this solar screen range.

Advances with this new non-heating technology are:

  • a new non-heating opaque material
  • with evaporation and a unique cooling control
  • a new desirable appearance for the warmer climates; or for Aussies who just want to keep their pool cooler, or even to have a better external heating control over the pool temperature.

This S8 SS Solar Screen product upgrade should be available to your customers soon. Stay tuned for more details, or feel free to catch up with your Daisy Area Manager for updates.
