Technology increases hydraulic efficiency and energy savings

SAN DIEGO – May 17, 2016 – Zodiac Pool Systems, Inc. (Zodiac®) a leading manufacturer of automatic pool cleaners and pool equipment, announces the release of VersaFlo Integrated Bypass technology for use with Jandy® JXi gas heaters. VersaFlo maximizes the hydraulic efficiency of pool equipment pads by dramatically reducing the pressure drop across the heating system when the heater isn’t used.

"VersaFlo is a game changer for increasing hydraulic efficiency of swimming pool equipment,” said Jeff Holmquist, Product Manager, Zodiac Pool Systems. “The addition of VersaFlo makes the ultra-compact, lightweight and energy-efficient JXi the clear choice for pool professionals who demand the highest equipment efficiency possible."

Available now, the JXi will feature new VersaFlo Integrated Bypass Technology for:

  • Increased hydraulic efficiency: The JXi with VersaFlo Integrated Bypass offers an additional, up to 20 percent energy savings*.
  • Ease of operation: Automatic actuation is based on call for heat and does not require human interaction.
  • Ease of installation: The flow bypass valve is integrated into the JXi header, requiring no external plumbing modifications.
  • Versa Plumb®-readiness: The hydraulic savings of VersaFlo make it the perfect complement to Versa Plumb, which reduces plumbing costs and maximizes energy efficiency in the smallest footprint available.

*Versus similar system without VersaFlo

VersaFlo is available in two versions: factory-installed on a JXi 400K BTU model or as an easy addition to any JXi by field installing the VersaFlo Bypass Assembly Kit.
