Waterco launches supersized algae brush engineered for aquatic centres

Waterco launches supersized algae brush engineered for aquatic centres
September 16, 2020

Global manufacturer of filtration and sanitisation innovations for the aquatic sector, Waterco has launched supersized algae brushes engineered for leisure centres, commercial pools and aquatic centres to help remove black spot and stubborn algae from surfaces.

The new 450mm wide head is more than triple the size of Waterco’s 143mm PRO Algae Pool Brush – a popular pool handover tool for new pool owners – and a special ergonomic design that easily manoeuvres in water.

Waterco group marketing director Bryan Goh notes “we engineered the larger size after listening to the industry and end users needing a more robust brush.

“It’s ideal for domestic pools with large-scale algae problems and public facilities such as civic pools and leisure centres.”

Special features of Waterco’s new 450mm PRO Algae Pool Brush:

·         Heavy duty bristles remove stubborn black spot and algae

·         Non-corrosive, U.V. stabilised plastics engineered to last

·         Universal design fits standard telescopic poles

·         Storage hole hangs for easy access in equipment room

·         Designed for homeowners and professional pool cleaners

·         Sustainable packaging made from recycled materials

Goh adds “Waterco’s PRO Pool Care Tools are designed to do the job quickly and efficiently, enabling commercial pool cleaners and maintenance teams to sustain healthy, algal free pool water.”
