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!
