The Two-Head Smoothie has helped fill a void in the large pool industry. The THS was created in order to help builders save space, by cutting down on multiple installations, and in turn, saving money.
In May 2002, Paragon Aquatech installed two THS filters during the complete renovation of Hillcrest Country Club in Long Grove, Illinois. Hillcrest Country Club serves 236 families, so it was important that renovation be completed as quickly as possible to meet the summer season. General Manager Michael Krabbe has been overly pleased with the performance of the THS filters they have installed to-date. “Space was a huge issue for us because our filters were being installed inside our pump room,” said Krabbe. “The filters fit through the door and were stacked side by side to save space. This product was ideal for small equipment rooms. I also have been impressed with the crystal clear filtration system and the clarity of water. The efficiency of the filters has saved me money because I don’t have to spend as much on chemicals in keeping the pool clean,” adds Krabbe.
“Ron Atlas with Paragon Aquatech is one of the best pool builders in the country. We relied on him completely, and he knew exactly what products to choose for this particular job. We couldn’t be more pleased,” said Krabbe.
“When we assessed this project, I knew right away that Pentair’s Two-Head Smoothie was a perfect fit for the filtration system,” said Atlas. For this particular renovation, they needed a cost-effective, quality filter that was reliable, easy to use and conducive in space. We wouldn’t have chosen any other product for the job.”
“The entire pool renovation took less than four months, and since then our membership has increased, our attendance at the pool has tripled, and our snack sales have escalated as well,” said Krabbe. “It has been a win-win situation the whole way, a wonderful return on investment, and we attribute the entire success to Paragon Aquatech and the particular products they chose for this job.”
