The unique PVC 84 slat differs in that it has a flexible "boat deck seal" that joins four slat packs at a time. This makes the cover much quicker to install. In addition, the individual slats are wider. This saves slats and reduces the cleaning effort between the slats. The flat, 2-colour design provides a perfect finish on the water surface. The patented and registered PVC 84 is also highly resistant to UV radiation and ageing.

The only universally applicable electrolysis system in the pool sector whose produced disinfection solution does not influence the pH value and maintains the acid capacity.

The Membrano EC "direct" produces on demand, without salt in the pool water and doses precisely. It can be used universally, even in stainless steel pools. The disinfection solution produced is neutral with pH 7! In practice, this means savings on pH reducers. The compact design enables quick installation and is also easy to maintain.

MSK HPX WW Pool Chiller

Cold and warm pool - tempered and controlled by one system.
