In its continuing effort to drive sales for brick-and-mortar retailers and pool service professionals, Zodiac Pool Systems has introduced several new programs for 2015. The first is a consumer-rebate program that is being adjusted for a new Bullseye requirement. Customers who purchase select Polaris or Zodiac pool cleaners at or above the manufacturer’s lowest acceptable advertised price qualify for rebates.

This program applies to the Zodiac MX8, T5 Duo and the Polaris 39000 Sport, 380, 360, 360 Black Max, P955 robotic, P945 robotic and the P39 pressure cleaner. Rebates are only available in season from April 1 through Sept. 7, 2015.

Zodiac also extended warranties for certain automatic pool cleaners. Consumers who purchase the Polaris 9550 Sport robotic, 9450 Sport robotic or the 3900 Sport robotic will receive a one-year-free extended warranty.

This is all part of Zodiac Days and Polaris Days, which were created to help brick-and-mortar stores promote and support storefront sales events.

During approved Polaris or Zodiac days events, retailers who signed up with the manufacturer can advertise cleaners with a promo code from Zodiac. This code allows for sale prices up to 10 percent below the lowest acceptable advertised price (LAAP.)
