Demanding customers and strict regulations
Studies and analysis show that, day by day, consumers are increasingly questioning how they are consuming things and the products they are buying. As they are more demanding, their expectations are turning towards products that meet their concerns, both in terms of energy and resource consumption and safety for their health and the environment.
Everyday work for swimming pool specialists
The growing number of strict environmental regulations is having an increasing impact on swimming pool specialists and is already heavily affecting the swimming pool sector all over Europe. Many swimming pool specialists have already taken them on board and offer an increasingly virtuous range of pools, thanks to the installation of equipment that simplifies, improves and automates the running of a pool.
A real benefit for the environment
As a global supplier for the sector, Pentair has been manufacturing long-lasting, safe and high-quality equipment in its European factories for years which meets customers' expectations and makes swimming pool specialists' jobs easier. For over 20 years, the company has invested heavily in innovations in order to:
- develop technologies, which have become market standards, such as the Intelliflo variable-speed pump, the Clean&Clear element filter or the IntelliPool home automation solution;
- improve its processes so it can produce better with less energy and resources (such as the Pisa site which,, generates more energy via its solar panels than it consumes);
- source manufacturing materials, locally wherever possible, that are both strong and have a low environmental impact;
- recycle and reuse its industrial waste.
Its efforts have been internationally recognised many times: EnergyStar Partner of the Year for the 6th year running, and winner of the Shingo Prize for operational excellence for its site in Moorpark, CA.
Furthermore, as a responsible brand, Pentair has been committed for many years to major humanitarian projects, with the creation of drinking water systems and training hundreds of thousands of people in water management in Africa, South America and India (WASH programme).
For virtuous swimming pools
With its ranges of products and services, Pentair offers swimming pool specialists and their customers a set of solutions that make their pools more economical and environmentally-friendly, while also letting them keep the running of their equipment under control.
