HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, September 29, 2009 7 ................................................ The cutting edge » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING Australia has always been up there in terms of pool designs and innovations, says president of the Swimming Pool and Spa Association (SPSA) Peter Moore. ''We're certainly ahead of the US, and definitely not lagging behind European countries such as Portugal and France, where there are lot of innovative pools,'' he said. ''Years ago a group of US pool builders came to Australia for a convention, and they couldn't believe what we were doing in Australia. ''For example, they weren't using pebblecrete pool interior finishes in those days, so we took them around a number of pool installations to show what we were doing, and they took ideas back to the US,'' Mr Moore said. ''People are now spending more on pools, and we are seeing a lot of architecturally designed pools. ''The pools we do today couldn't possibly have been done years ago because of their complexity. Basic pools are now far better than they used to be.'' He said lots of landscaping features are incorporated into today's pools. ''They are being integrated into housing designs, rather than being afterthoughts,'' he said. Details: spasa.com.au Keeping tabs on the water temperature A good way to check the temperature of your pool or spa is by using a floating monitor. A floating monitor operates as both a standalone device and as a wireless sensor. When used with a compatible professional weather station, the monitor makes it easy to check the temperature of your pool or spa. The THWR800 monitor is completely waterproof and can free-float or be tethered to a nearby object. The monitor has a built-in LCD screen that clearly displays the current water temperature, making it easy to know when the temperature is not suitable for you and your family and friends. RRP: $89.99.
