Canada Introduces Alternative Sanitizer Products

New systems are the only alternative mineral sanitizers registered by Health Canada

Ontario, Canada – Dec. 11, 2012 – Zodiac Pool Systems Canada, Inc. has introduced two new products, the Nature2® Fusion Inground and Nature2® Fusion Soft, which are the only PMRA (Health Canada) accepted alternative mineral sanitizers available to the Canadian market.

Demonstrating its commitment to continual product improvement, the sanitizing systems use the well known Nature2 mineral sanitizing technology to significantly reduce chlorine usage. When used with 0.6ppm chlorine, Nature2 works as a biocidal sanitizer and algaestat. Using Nature2 mineral sanitizing systems means fewer chemicals, less maintenance for consumers, and easy installation for pool professionals.

Zodiac unveiled the new products at the annual Canadian Pool & Spa Conference & Expo Nov. 28-29, 2012 in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The conference brought together builders, retailers, service professionals and landscape architects with manufacturers, suppliers and service providers to showcase the latest pool and spa products to the Canadian marketplace.

Nature2 Fusion Inground is a chlorine and mineral sanitizing system for in-ground pools. By combining patented Nature2 mineral technology with an automatic chlorine tab feeder, Nature2 Fusion Inground delivers water that is noticeably cleaner, clearer, and softer. Nature2 is a natural supplement to chlorine, so it helps maximize chlorine investment, while reducing the unpleasant and harmful effects of excessive chemical use. With Nature2 Fusion Inground, consumers can significantly reduce chlorine usage.

Nature2 Fusion Soft is an all-in-one salt and mineral sanitizing system for in-ground pools. The system combines Nature2 minerals with an automatic salt water sanitizer to destroy bacteria and control algae without any additional chlorine.

Busy families will welcome the low maintenance systems, because with Nature2, they no longer need to manage daily dosing of sanitizer. Beyond simple processes such as checking pH and alkalinity, pool owners only need to replace the mineral cartridge every six months starting at the beginning of the season and replenish chlorine every two months for Fusion Inground or check their salt level once a year for Fusion Soft.

Pool professionals will appreciate the easy installation. Both systems seamlessly connect to the Jandy® Pro Series Versa Plumb® system, Zodiac’s all-in-one energy efficient core equipment set. Additional features include commercial grade durability, universal unions for fast connections, and the Fusion Soft’s auto reverse polarity for automatic self-cleaning.

"Nature2 has an excellent reputation in Australia and the U.S. as an alternative mineral sanitizer, and with the recent acceptance from PMRA, we’re thrilled to begin marketing this technology to our Canadian customers as well," said Stephen Hendry, vice president of sales for Canada. "Nature2 is good for the family and for the environment. The Fusion Inground and Fusion Soft systems allow consumers to fully enjoy their pools without excessive chemical usage. We expect consumers and professionals alike to embrace these two systems."

Professionals interested in viewing Nature2 Fusion Inground and Nature2 Fusion Soft can call their regional sales representative for more information.
