Judges' Notes:

"Solar is something that is evolving and every year getting better, but I have not seen any one of the big three players enter the solar market with
a successful cleaner or skimmer. This could be a very good product if the solar component works seamlessly."

"It’s wonderful that it has no cords, no hoses attached to it. I think it is a neat idea."

"Perma-Column has an awesome approach. It has created a solution that is easier to use than the traditional way of pouring cement. It’s a time saver and a high-quality way to do it. And the column will never be affected by rot, mildew or freeze-thaw."

Product: The Shelf Lounger
Manufacturer: GPM Manufacturing

Poolside days are for entertainment, relaxing & enjoying the water. The Shelf Lounger's all-in-one tanning ledge with lounging chairs & spill-over edge showcases the perfect innovation for any pool. Min installation allows the poolside user to enjoy a 2ndbody of water rather than minimizing pool space.

Judges' Notes:

"The shelf lounger is a great option for renovations. It could be very popular with how hot the renovation market is now. It looks like it would be a great way to renovate without a huge additional expense of ripping into the structure. It’s creative, and it looks like it would be a much more cost-effective option for some clients as long if they have the deck and patio space."

Judges' Notes:

"The industry is needing a good quality rechargeable skimmer vac that can handle leaves. This will be very beneficial to service professionals as well as pool owners. The main feature is that it is cordless, which is outstanding. There has not been another product on the market that can handle leaves."
