Solar Pool Technologies successful at PSP Expo

Robotic solar-powered pool cleaner served as company's showstopper

PSP ExpoPHOENIX - After a successful Kickstarter campaign and thousands of units shipped to customers worldwide, Arizona-based Solar Pool Technologies Inc. (SPT) announced that they will be taking the Solar-Breeze NX to New Orleans for the International Pool I Spa I Patio Expo (PSP Expo), being held Nov. 2-4 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

CEO Paul Sim will be on hand at Booth 1380 to answer questions and tell people how to get involved.

Following the success of the original Solar-Breeze, the company raised $408,078 on Kickstarter in September 2015, when pool owners from all over the world pre-ordered the Solar-Breeze NX. This gave the company the capital they needed to ramp up production of this next generation device.

The Solar-Breeze is a revolutionary invention that uses power from the sun instead of grid electricity to effortlessly remove dirt, debris, pollen and even suntan oils from the pool’s surface. During the day, Solar-Breeze uses the sun’s power to run the motors that drive the cleaner across the water. Surplus power is stored in its rechargeable battery, enabling it to continue operating practically around the clock.

“It’s like a robotic vacuum for your pool, but there’s really nothing else out there like this right now,” said Paul Sim, CEO of Solar Pool Technologies.

While the Solar-Breeze NX appears visually the same as the original model, it features several enhancements including:

• New software with an upgraded power management system to enhance battery power management, leading to increased time of operation and improved battery life.
• The improved power management system also puts less stress on the motors that drive the Solar-Breeze NX, improving the efficiency of operation and extending motor life.
• A new plastic polymer blend is being used for the top housing of the Solar-Breeze NX to improve its resistance to ultraviolet rays and slow the deterioration of the plastics, leading to longer life for the product.
• The gear mechanisms at the front of the unit that transfer power from the front motor to the front paddlewheel and bumper wheels are re-engineered to improve efficiency, reduce drag and extend the life of the drive system.
• The system for detecting when a unit is stuck on an obstacle has been improved to result in better overall operation in the pool.
• Attachments for the Solar-Breeze NX will be available that allow it to adapt more effectively to pools with rock outcroppings, beach entries and other complex features.
