SAN DIEGO – Aug. 4, 2011 – Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc. today announced the launch of its Jandy Pro Series® line of core equipment products targeted to pool professionals and master builders.

Zodiac, through its comprehensive family of brands, provides a complete system of pool products, from core equipment and controllers to automatic pool cleaners to alternative sanitizers, offering pool builders, servicers, retailers, and consumers smart technologies and energy efficiencies to maximize value, save time, and simplify pool maintenance. Zodiac’s enhanced focus and investment in pool industry professionals has led the company to the strategic rebranding of its core equipment offering under the new Jandy Pro Series by Zodiac identity. This summer and throughout the coming year, a number of products will be introduced under the Jandy Pro Series brand, starting with the new VS FloPro™ Variable-Speed Pump, which launched August 1. The new Jandy Pro Series will begin to roll out at the end of the 2011 season, and will include a fresh new logo and collateral design aimed at conveying the premium nature of the brand and features designed for the discerning professional user.

“Jandy has a great history as a pioneer in the pool-building industry. As we move forward in building recognition for Zodiac Pool Systems, we believe it is important to honor the strengths of the brands within our portfolio. Jandy has always been known for its premium products, great customer support, and for helping pros grow their businesses,” said Tony Prudhomme, president of Zodiac Pool Systems. “By clearly identifying the professional-grade products under the Jandy Pro Series brand, we reaffirm our commitment to traditional Jandy values while continuing the commitment to technology innovation that Zodiac embraces. We think it’s the best of both worlds.”

Core equipment products included under the Jandy Pro Series brand are pumps, filters, heaters, heat pumps, water purification systems, valves, lighting, in-floor cleaning systems, and water leveling. The Jandy Pro Series brand will make it easier for pool professionals to identify and choose the products that together give the consumer the most energy efficient and maintenance-free pool available.
