Pool Cover Specialists Mobile ShowroomPool Cover Specialists (PCS), an international automatic swimming pool cover manufacturer, launched their Mobile Showroom and Training Center on October 25, 2010. The custom-built van is now traveling the country promoting pool safety and energy conservation. 


"Pool owners need to know that there are potential solutions to help reduce drowning deaths and save energy in backyard pools, and I'm spending the next year traveling the country on a mission to inform consumers, dealers and distributors, that pool covers save lives, save energy, and save money," stated Randy Mathis, VP and Mobile STC project coordinator for PCS.

Mr. Mathis went on to say: "Look, the energy-saving information and proof is confirmed by studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy and others, and show that automatic swimming pool covers, create a win/win scenario for the consumer and the environment by saving pool owners as much as 83 percent on their pool heating costs. Automatic pool covers provide pool owners with multiple solutions: They help make a pool environmentally green by eliminating up to 93 percent of the water, chemical and heat loss associated with evaporation. And they create the most effective barrier protection available, by completely isolating the pool water from children, pets, and unauthorized individuals."

This ambitious undertaking has taken PCS months of planning and preparation and was made possible in part thanks to the support of some very large players in the pool industry, including ISPACA (International Swimming Pool and Automatic Cover Association), a pool cover industry advocate and association promoting pool safety and environmental responsibility. PCS has been officially designated by ISPACA as the association's "Traveling Ambassadors for Pool Safety and Energy Conservation.” In that role, PCS will have the opportunity to visit small towns and large cities across the country and talk with pool builders, local governments, consumers, and pool owners—both in person at special events and during live, local radio, and TV station interviews—about the importance of pool safety and the energy conservation or "green" benefits realized through the use of automatic swimming pool covers.
