SANFORD, N.C., November 15, 2007 — Pentair Water Pool and Spa® has
introduced the Eco Select brand of environmentally responsible
products for new and existing swimming pools. The brand is being
unveiled this week at The AQUA Show in Las Vegas.
Today’s eco-conscious consumers face record energy prices, tighter
and more expensive water supplies, and increased noise abatement
ordinances. Eco Select products feature new technologies and smarter
designs that reduce energy consumption — benefiting both the
environment and consumers’ budgets.
“Demand is exploding for environmentally-friendly products that save
money,” explains Carlos Del Amo, Vice President of Marketing and
Product Development. “We know that consumers are expected to double
their spending on green products and services during the next year.
And, we think it’s the right thing to do.”
A new 16-page brochure titled “Going Green” describes the products
that combine to form an Eco Select system. Led by Pentair’s
revolutionary IntelliFlo variable-speed pumps, Eco Select products
do the best job of saving energy, conserving water, reducing noise,
and making other contributions to an environmentally responsible
The Eco Select family of products includes:
· IntelliFlo and IntelliPro pumps
· High performance Max-E-Therm and MasterTemp heaters
· Heat pumps
· Select D.E. and cartridge filters
· Legend II pressure-side cleaners
· IntelliBrite LED lights
· IntelliTouch, EasyTouch and SunTouch automation systems
· IntelliChlor salt chlorine generators.
Each product supports the green system approach in its own way.
Optimized pump speed improves the effectiveness of the filter,
extending the time between cleanings and reducing both energy use on
the front end and water use on the back end. It also improves heater
performance, reducing run times and energy consumed. And the
advantages go on and on.
By using Eco Select products, builders will deliver a synergistic
and environmentally responsible package.
