ELIZABETH, NJ — The new Commercial equipment range introduced in 2010 by Hayward® Pool Products has been named Aquatics International’s “Most Valuable Products of 2010.” The readers of this leading pool and spa industry publication cited the commercial line filters for their superior filtration and backwashing efficiency and the commercial pumps for their overall performance and quiet operation.

Aquatics International noted: “Hayward Commercial introduces a new line of commercial equipment, including all-plastic pumps ranging from 5.5hp to 12.5hp operation and gel-coated fiber glass filters in 30- and 36-inch diameters. The pumps are quiet, efficient, lightweight, noncorrosive and an ideal alternative to traditional pumps with cast-iron housing… Filters combine overhead distribution with a horizontal, lateral grid array. They feature longer cycle times and more efficient filtration and backwashing. Up to six can be configured in one bank.”

According to Hayward Vice President of Commercial Business Development Stuart Baker, “We are thrilled by the response to Hayward’s Commercial Group among aquatic facilities and businesses. This recognition from Aquatics International’s readers is just further validation that our commercial products and service are resonating in the marketplace.”
