The new Blue DiamondTM Pro is the latest addition to the Pool Blaster line by Water Tech and cleans up to a 25-foot by 75-foot pool spotless in four hours or less. Using the patented Aqua SmartTM system automatically changes the cleaning direction using a smart mathematical algorithm to systematically cover every centimeter of the pool—eliminating the additional hours required by other robotic cleaners that use conventional random patterns.

Keep It Dry

Gerflor North America introduced Taraflex® Sport Performance Plus Dry-TexTM flooring. Sport Performance Plus now incorporates the Dry-TexTM System, a single solution for preventing subfloor moisture and moisture-related sports flooring failures. Sports Performance Plus still delivers 41 percent shock absorption and accurate ball bounce with the added advantage of resistance to 12 pounds of subfloor moisture. Dry-TexTM consists of a non-woven material directly integrated into the floor's foam backing and multi-layer surface and glued to the subfloor with a proprietary adhesive 3.5 times the strength of standard two-part epoxy adhesives. The Dry-TexTM System eliminates the need for a separate subfloor moisture limiter system.

Cover Your Can

The Kwik-Can Cover is an innovative new way to cover 33- and 55-gallon barrels. Most metal barrels quickly become dented and rusty, requiring continual maintenance and repainting year after year—if it even gets done at all. Even the newer plastic drums become an eyesore after a short period of time. The Kwik-Can Cover is a plastic sleeve that utilizes elastic at the top and bottom to hold the cover on the can. Slide the cover down over the can and you're left with a clean, pleated look. Packaged 50 per carton in white, black, royal blue, black and white check and new patriotic design.
