Heat pool water naturally with Kamaleon

A commitment to innovation comes naturally to Fluidra – and to conceive and develop groundbreaking products, it’s crucial to harness the ideas of our team. That’s why we promote events like Fluidra Innovation Week where, via Fluidra Accelera, the Fluidra powerhouse set up to foster innovative water-related products, these ideas can be put into practice. We want to provide a way for our people to leverage their capacity for disruptive thought and give them the chance to become entrepreneurs within the company, making their ideas come true and changing the dynamics in which they have first-hand experience.

After explaining the case of Improv3d, it’s now the turn of the second winner of Innovation Week 2018 – Kamaleon, a proposal developed by Alba Carandell (Poltank), Pablo Terán (Fluidra Accelera), and Nikolay Slivkin (Fluidra Kazakhstan).

We came up with the idea of designing a special type of material that would absorb energy from the sun and transmit it to the water so you can heat a pool without any equipment or other additional resources,” (Nikolay Slivkin)

As Nikolay explains, “Kamaleon is posited on the development of a cover designed to line pool walls, able to absorb and channel solar energy to the water. We can harness this simple and natural technique to obtain heat with no other installation and at no extra cost. We could also study the possibility of producing it in different colours for users to customize it as they like.”

Thanks to their work and the fine exhibition presented to the panel of jurors, the group formed by Alba, Pablo, and Nikolay was recognized at Innovation Week as one of the winners and they have the company’s full support in developing this innovative proposal.

  2. A very interesting project. If you have a need to field test in cold winter climate to determine what “winter” will do to the material keep your Canadian office in mind.

    Un proyecto muy interesante. Si necesita realizar una prueba de campo en un clima frío de invierno para determinar qué hará el “invierno” al material, tenga en cuenta su oficina en Canadá.
