Zodiac Research & Development

Zodiac’s Research & Development teams are continuously working on developing the future in domestic pool products.

This also includes investing and improving the original technologies we have acquired through the acquisition of businesses including Baracuda, Polaris, Nature2, Clearwater, Jandy and Premium Quality Chemicals.

Using the latest in materials, manufacturing techniques and technology, we aim to deliver superior convenience, comfort and safety whilst meeting strict international performance standards.

Zodiac’s technological expertise can be found in the design of its products as well as our production and use of materials.  Our highly-diversified range is a good illustration of our ability to apply this expertise: swimming pool cleaners, chlorination systems, control systems, pool heating, filtration equipment, as well as pool and spa chemicals.

Zodiac has three research and development laboratories around the world, that also act as centres of excellence for certain products and technologies. We are proud to host one such design centre at our Australian head office at Smithfield in Sydney. The R&D team in Sydney are primarily responsible for water care, and their role is to develop innovative watercare solutions, both automated and manual (chemical), that help pool owners achieve the perfect pool experience.

All Zodiac products comply with international standards and the toughest quality requirements.
