SPLASH Trade Expo @ Jupiters Casino, Gold Coast

We had an interesting day at the recent SPLASH trade show held at Jupiters Casino on the Gold Coast.

When you have been in the industry for a long time these shows seem to be very much ‘same old, same old’.

The pool industry is very cut-throat with all the major players trying to out do each other.

While just a few years ago energy efficient equipment & robotic cleaners were new & different, now every manufacturer had these to show off.

This can only be a good thing for the consumer.

We checked out many different solar heating suppliers & their components, as well as what everyone had to say about how good their multi-speed pumps & robotic cleaners were, different types of sanitation from normal sea salt chlorinators, mineral salt blends such as Magnapool & Aqua Therepe, ozone generators & oxidizers combined with sonic waves, automatic chemical controllers, digital & remote controllers for just about everything, new filter designs & filter media, some incredible pool lighting innovations, custom filter boxes, gas heaters & electric heat pumps, pool covers & rollers from the basic to the incredible & even complete pool enclosures.

It was great to catch up & chat with some old friends & acquaintances that we don’t get to see too often.

It was also great to see how environmentally friendly the industry is becoming.

I came away with a reinforced belief that we, as a business that prides itself on providing our clients with the very best, energy efficient, longest lasting, user friendly, up to date & competitively priced equipment available, are still on the right track.

It was a well-run event & the suppliers all put a lot of effort into their displays so congratulations from Northern Rivers Pools to the organizers & the SPLASH team on their efforts.

And we didn’t even go into the Casino for a flutter…. But that’s a good thing!
