POLARIS INTRODUCES TWO NEW AUTOMATIC POOL CLEANERS TO ZODIAC’S TRADE SERIES EXCLUSIVE LINE-UP

The Polaris® 8050 Sport robotic cleaner and Polaris TR36P pressure cleaner are sold exclusively to brick-and-mortar retailers

SAN DIEGO – August 31, 2016 – Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc. (Zodiac®), a global manufacturer of pool and spa equipment, recently launched two new automatic pool cleaners as trade series exclusives. These products are only available to Zodiac’s brick-and-mortar dealers, aren’t for Internet resale, and are often sold with bonus features.

The Polaris 8050 Sport is a new robotic cleaner equipped with Cyclonic Vacuum Technology for powerful performance, the Push’N’Go® easy-access filter canister with transparent lid for simple debris handling, and a Surface Control System for optimal grip and wall climbing.

The Polaris TR36P, a non-booster pressure cleaner, features exceptional 3-venturi-jet vacuum power and a large debris inlet, as well as a bonus all-purpose debris bag and included TailSweep PRO®. Usually available for separate sale, the TailSweep PRO is a retrofit accessory that delivers 50 percent more flow while preventing the cleaner’s sweep hose from splashing water on windows and walkways.

“These new products are supported by Zodiac’s Trade Series Exclusive Policy, which was the first of its kind for the industry,” said Michelle Kenyon, vice president of marketing for Zodiac Pool Systems. “We launched the policy in 2014 to protect profit margins for pool retailers. As part of our expanding trade series line-up, the Polaris 8050 Sport and Polaris TR36P ensure dealers offer innovative quality products with differentiated features that customers can’t find anywhere else.”

The new Polaris 8050 Sport and TR36P join a robust line-up of other Zodiac trade series exclusive products including the Polaris TR35P pressure cleaner, Zodiac TR2D and MX8TM Elite suction cleaners, Jandy VS PlusHP variable-speed pump, Jandy JXi with VersaFlo pool and spa heater, and Jandy TruClearTM saltwater chlorinator. Zodiac plans to offer more trade series exclusive products in 2017.

Pool professionals are encouraged to contact their local Zodiac representative for more information and to review the Trade Series Policy.
