In this edition of pool and spa product roundups, we highlight composite decking from MoistureShield, Jandy's iQPump01 and Multi-Tork’s latest socket tool. Plus, we have an update on Pool Watch Software by Home Port Computer.
MoistureShield composite decking is built to be attractive, yet is tough enough to be installed on the ground, in the ground or underwater. Homeowners can choose from the Vantage Collection, a high-performance reversible board, or the Pro Collection, a capped board with an added layer of protection and beauty. They also can complete their deck design with MoistureShield Deck Lights, Hidden Fasteners and Pro Aluminum Railing. It comes with a lifetime warranty.

A Smart Move
The iQPump01 enables app control for Jandy variable-speed pumps. A mobile pump user interface allows pool professionals to install, set up and control the pump using a smartphone and the iAquaLink app. Built-in hotspot technology makes setup and programming simple, even without Internet access. Typically, iQPump01 installs in seconds, and the simplified onboard user interface allows the servicer to access several key features without a smartphone, including quick clean, time-out mode, countdown mode and more.

Socket to Us
Multi-Tork’s Socket No. 9. Model MT-100H (Hybrid) is for the pool and the industrial filter industries. One end is a standard 3/4-inch hex socket, which captures the hex nut clamp on Hayward’s C-3030 filter series. The other end is a dual-slotted socket. One slot captures most wing nut closure filter systems such as Harmsco, Solberg and others. The diametrically opposed slot captures any standard industrial filter V-clamp T-handle closure system.

All industry chemical brand lines are within the software, which also integrates with popular POS systems. The Wave III scanner scans and analyzes the ScanMate 7 test strip, giving accurate test results in 15 seconds at a cost of about 15 cents. Tests for free chlorine, pH total alkalinity, total chlorine/bromine, total hardness and cyanuric acid.
