Better Pools Considering New Chemical Choices

2013 started off with a bang at the annual Country Club Managers Association Convention held this year in Las Vegas, where visitors were treated to a variety of new innovations and improvements on old stand-bys that club managers can bring home to their wealthy clientele. Keeping their facilities on the cutting edge and one-upping their competition - be it for turf, facilities, tennis, or pool management - is big business when your customers are blue-bloods (the richest of the rich). One of the biggest surprises at this year's show was a demonstration presented by AA Sun Products, Inc. which is offering a sun screen product that allows one to exit any swimming pool totally dry after complete immersion.

Using a technology similar to that offered by RainUWAY, a popular automobile wax product which is rubbed on windshields to whisk away rain in beads as fast as it lands on one's car, this sun screen product is made for people (applied like sunscreen or as a spray) and conceptually does the same thing.

With PoolTowelX (the new product's name), water can not be absorbed by the skin, swimsuits or even hair when it is applied. When one exits any swimming pool, the water falls off the applied area nearly instantly leaving the area totally dry and as if the user had never been wet at all.

As an added benefit, besides offering this innovative towel-eliminating feature, PoolTowelX - when applied to eyes (physician approval recommended) also allows one to see clearly in the water without goggles and increases swim speed exponentially by reducing drag (because water can not cling to the body).

Out of concern for this latter feature that some swim competitors may use PoolTowelX to get an unfair advantage, AA Sun Products promises a pool water mix (added along with the chlorine cycle) which will give all competitors the same advantage of the sun screen product and eliminate the need for any user application at all. ;)
