Arizona-based Glacier Pool Coolers continues to be a leader in swimming pool chilling systems and announced it has added three commercial pool chillers at The Scottsdale Plaza Resort.
At a time when people are indulging in staycations, the popular chiller company is also seeing an increase in business with a staggering 300% difference over last year, according to a release.
Developed and patented by owner Rick Argovitz in 2003, Glacier Pool Coolers works to cool pressurized water by airflow created by the unit’s fan. The chilled water is pumped back into the pool creating colder water over the next 12 to 14 hours. Temperatures can decrease by as much as 15 degrees.
The fan-based system does not need Freon or gas and easily installs into existing pool plumbing systems and automated controls. It costs pennies a day to operate after it’s installed.
“The Scottsdale Plaza Resort has been thrilled with the feedback from our guests since the installation of the pool coolers,” said Sean Sachs, Senior Vice President of The Scottsdale Plaza Resort. “We all know the Valley of the Sun summers can make valley pools the largest hot tubs around. Because of the Glacier Pool Coolers, jumping into our pools during the hot summer months is refreshing. It is one thing that helps with repeat guests all summer long.”
The Scottsdale Plaza Resort is the latest in various commercial properties opting to keep water temperatures refreshing throughout the year. Additional resorts that have the pool coolers include the Westin Kierland Resort, Royal Palms Resort and Spa, The Wigwam Resort, Hotel Adeline, Aji Spa at Wildhorse Pass, JW Marriott Camelback, and Talking Stick Resort and Casino.
In addition to resorts, Rick and his wife Mindy, also co-owner of the company, further saw a need for the cooling system in other commercial properties including the Village Health Clubs, ASU Polytechnic, the Phoenix Zoo, and even active adult retirement communities such as Sun City Grand and Sun City West.
