Passport to Paradise 2013 and 2014

Hawaii-SwitzerlandThis year we are taking a completely different approach to our Passport to Paradise incentive trip announcement. We’ve decided to give you both 2013 and 2014 destinations. In 2013, we are headed to Hawaii to the beautiful Kahala Hotel and Resort. The trip will take place January 14 – 19, 2013.
In 2014, we will be going to a completely new destination; Switzerland. In Switzerland, we’ll be staying at the magnificent Fairmont Le Montreux Palace in Geneva.
By announcing both trips, we hope builders will be able to easier decide whether or not to roll their points to the following year. We hope our builders are as excited about these destinations as we are. Happy Selling.

Updates on Paralevel, Module and SwingJet

It’s here!  For all of you that have wanted a Pour Lid for the Paramount Paralevel – we now have one.  It comes in Gray and Beige and is available now from Paramount or your Distributor. Its Part Number is 004-762-2930-XX

Many questions have come in about why the 1 + 1 module comes in two versions, 4 gear and the 5 gear.  The 4 gear is for running cycles of approximately 3 minutes per circuit and is used for two circuit systems.  These would be spas, circulation systems and negative edge basins.  The 5 gear module runs for approximately 12 minutes per circuit and is used for running two other 6 port valves on larger pools requiring up to 12 ports on a single pump.

The swing jet is gaining rave reviews in its ability to sweep out much larger areas in pools where down jets have been used in the past.  Remember that the swing jets must be on a water valve circuit or the pump must be cycled at least three times a day to make it rotate to all three positions.  It only changes positions when it is cycled off and on and it has three different positions giving it a 90-degree swing.  A maximum of three Swing Jets can be used on a circuit.   On a PCC system two Swing Jets can be placed with the two Down Jets above the fixed nozzles for the standard circuit on single pump system.  If the system is a booster pump cleaning system then the filter pump needs to cycle three times a day to allow the two Swing Jets cycle to all three positions.  Keep in mind that the off time of the filter pump should be only a few minutes if cycling that pump while the cleaner booster pump is on.
