Enrolled dealers receive points simply for purchasing qualifying Zodiac products and are able to redeem those points for merchandise, trips, cash, and marketing support. New to the program is the "Points for People" offering, which allows dealers to use their points to donate to participating charitable organizations. Zodiac will cut a check to the chosen participating charity, and the tax write-off will go to the dealer. Several times per year, Zodiac will match a percentage of dealer donations to encourage usage of the program. Currently, participating charitable organizations include: the Arthritis Foundation®, Big Brothers/Big Sisters®, the American Red Cross® and the American Cancer Society®. Plans are underway to add several additional local and national charities throughout 2012.

In addition, ProEdge™ Software Solutions offered by Zodiac can be purchased using rewards points to provide expert, pool industry-focused software that assists businesses with lead tracking and account management. Dealers also have access to 4-year extended warranties on Zodiac products. Beginning in January 2012, big ticket electronics such as HD TVs, iPads, and personal computers are being added to the redemption options.

According to Robyn Gabel, director of Zodiac Premium, Zodiac will continue to look for ways to expand the program and reward dealers for loyalty to Zodiac products.

"We plan to continue investing a great deal of time, energy, and financial resources to ensure that Zodiac Premium is the ultimate program for our hardworking dealers. We believe dealers will enjoy the enhancements made to the program now, but this is just the beginning."
