Step It Up

With the continued popularity of step training, Power Systems has introduced the Economy Club Step, a new step that offers quality and durability at an affordable price. Well suited for group fitness and personal training, this 6-inch-high step not only offers durability in a club environment, but also features a loop on each side for attaching tubing, providing numerous options for cardio-strength step routines. With a 250-pound weight limit, the Economy Club Step accommodates a wide range of users. The ridged stepping platform, which measures 22 inches by 15 inches, improves traction while the nonskid bottom keeps the step from sliding.

Tank Time

Swimming pool surge or balancing tanks are used to bring together main drain and gutter water prior to the main filter pump. Older pools with deteriorated metal surge tanks are frequently faced with limited access to the filter room. Mer-Made tanks can be supplied in multiple segments. Each segment can easily be carried through doorways, halls, etc., into the filter room where they are bolted together with factory-supplied gasket and stainless-steel bolts and nuts. The Mer-Made Fiberglass Surge Tanks are designed specifically for the pool industry. They are shipped with internal float valves for the main drain lines.
