PRODUCT TESTING REPORT -January, 2007
By Pat Farrior


AUTOMATIC METERING PUMP for HeatSaver, the LIQUID POOL COVER

DESCRIPTION:

The HS115 is an Automatic Metering System for the application of HeatSavr, the liquid pool
cover. It is a reliable, accurate, inexpensive way to ensure that your pool receives all the
energy savings possible from using HeatSavr.

The HS115 is a time-activated water-resistant peristaltic pump for industrial applications. Up
to 24 events may be programmed with variable run times for each event from one second to
20 minutes. The HS115 operates a 7 –day clock in which events can be programmed to
occur every day or only on particular days throughout the week. A back up battery keeps the
clock running in the event of an interruption in the electrical power. The Automatic Metering
System is sold complete with a pump tube installed and additional accessories included. The
HS115 is available for use with 115VAC, 230VAC or with a D-cell battery pack.
Approximate wholesale cost: $195.00
Available at: Superior Pools


LIGHT ADAPTER RING

DESCRIPTION:

Stainless Steel Light Adapter Ring is used to Re-install a light when the original anchors are
stripped or broken. Light cord does not have to be removed to install.
Approximate wholesale cost: $70.00
Available at: SCP and Superior Pools


DC POWERED POOL PUMP

DESCRIPTION:

This pump is especially designed for pool filtration and is powered directly by Photo Voltaic
Panels! No batteries or trick electronics are needed to operate this unit. Pumping 45 – 50
gallons of water per minute is not unusual, even for the ¾ HP version. The main advantage
to using this pump versus a standard AC Pump is the efficiency. This unit uses
approximately 60 – 65% as much electricity as a standard unit of the same power.

Approximate wholesale cost: $1100.00
