JXi™ Launch

Pre-Orders of the JXi Pool Heater Surpass Zodiac Sales Projections

SAN DIEGO - January 26, 2015 - Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc. (Zodiac) has officially released the highly-anticipated Jandy Pro Series JXi™ gas heater, the latest in the company’s line of innovative pool and spa heating solutions for homeowners.

Zodiac designed the JXi to outperform other heaters in its class and to make installation and integration with other systems less time-consuming and easier for pool professionals. The heater integrates easily into the Versa Plumb® system, which increases hydraulic efficiency, uses less horsepower and minimizes the amount of plumbing and pipe fittings required. For extra convenience, the JXi is automation-ready with its RS485 interface, so it can be controlled by any AquaLink® system with ease.

"The industry is already responding positively to the design and energy efficiency of the JXi gas heater. We have more than doubled our sales projections with pre-release orders alone," said Steve Gutai, director of technical sales and marketing at Zodiac. "We expect Zodiac's reputation as a top-selling brand for pool and spa heaters to remain firmly intact with the addition of the new JXi gas heater."

The new JXi gas heater maximizes the use of features that aid ease of installation, maintenance and automation, including:

  • Ultra-compact, lightweight design for fast and easy installation in areas as small as two square feet
  • Optimized installation versatility via sidewall ventilation and a 180-degree rotatable top
  • User-friendly digital display interface for simple temperature control and easy access to diagnostics
  • Maximum plumbing flexibility via a three-port header design that eliminates the need to make plumbing adjustments when replacing most leading heaters
  • Automation-ready integration with any AquaLink system, including Zodiac’s iAqualink™

The JXi heater is highly efficient and has earned a thermal efficiency rating of 83 percent, which surpasses the Department of Energy's strict energy efficiency requirements. The increase is thanks to an innovative coiled copper fin heat exchanger design and an upgraded single stainless steel center burner that allow for more efficient heat transfer.

The JXi will be on display in Zodiac’s booth #2437 at the 2015 Pool & Spa Show in Atlantic City from Jan. 27-29, 2015. To see the entire pool heater line, visit http://www.zodiacpoolsystems.com/Products/Heaters.aspx
