AQUAFINESSE STAYS AHEAD OF THE GAME Pool and spa specialists AquaFinesse are experts in the field of environmentally friendly water treatment. The patented technology has proven to be revolutionary and already has a significant reputation throughout Europe years ahead of its time as it demonstrates consistent outstanding results. The AquaFinesse team has succeeded in addressing the real cause of bacterial pollution by developing a range of products to mitigate biofilm in an environmentally friendly way, which until now was only achievable by using the harshest of chemicals, with their well documented disadvantages such as toxic action to the environment and corrosion causing properties. AquaFinesse products are not biocides and do not contain complicated organic compounds. They work simply by loosening the biofilm (slimy layers) from their substrate, to keep pools or hot tub crystal clear.



Gateshead based Palintest return to Lyon where the water testing business had great success two years ago. High visitor numbers and a pan European audience were the main factors in the company returning to Piscine for the 2012 event.

Featuring again will be the Pooltest 9 Premier, quick and easy to use and a system provides accurate readings. It has pre- programmed tests for chlorine levels bromine, pH, alkalinity, calcium hardness, cyanuric acid, copper and ozone. The Pooltest 9 Premier stores up to 100 results from an on-board memory. There is a

waterproof USB port for PC connection. A new balanced water calculation function was recently added, which automatically uses the results from the standard tests to produce a Palintest or Langelier index result. The standard or extended chlorine ranges can be easily selected from the settings menu, which means that the buttons and test regimes are kept the same at all times. WWW.PALINTEST.COM

PLASTIPACK’S GEOBUBBLE TECHNOLOGY An increasing successful export story continues to drive Plastipack’s and its new bubble shape which is designed to increase the expected lifespan of swimming pool bubble cover material by 25%. Launched at the Aquanale and Piscina trade exhibitions last year the GeoBubble technology is for use in swimming pools and sets a new benchmark for all other swimming pool cover materials. Plastipack is one key example at Lyon that Britain still has a good reputation for developing new products

GeoBubble technology lasts longer as it has been developed to be more resistant to Ultra Violet light and chemical attack which leads to premature failure in the traditional bubble shape. Combined with the high performance Guard materials it will give a longer lasting cover with the highest energy and resource saving efficiencies available. WWW.GEOBUBBLE.CO.UK
