During the second day at Piscina Wellness, we stopped by Europa Spas’s stands and asked a few questions to Mr. Galvin Savov about Europa Spas, Gecko Alliance, Gecko products in general and, more specifically, Gecko's in.clear water sanitization system for spas.
On Europa Spas
Europa Spas is a european manufacturer of spas and hot tubs with a factory based in Bulgaria and offices in UK and Spain.
Active in the leisure industry for more than 12 years, Europa Spas started manufacturing their own spa models 3 years ago and this year marks their first presence at the Piscina Wellness in Barcelona.
On Europa Spas customers
Europa Spas have customers in Central and Western Europe but they are aiming for a wider presence all over Europe. They sell direct to consumers in certain locations but also work with distributors in various countries.
On Gecko and Gecko products
Europa Spas’ relationship with Gecko started with meeting Maarten Varenkamp, Gecko’s international sales manager, at a trade show and grew with continuous contacts and discussions. Since some of Europa Spas’ customers were asking for Gecko systems equipped spa models based on previous experiences, commercially, it just made senses for Europa Spas to fulfill their customers’ requests as well as using Gecko components on their spa models.
Europa Spas buys control systems, keypads, in.clear water sanitization and in.touch wifi systems. At Piscina Wellness, Mr. Gavov was impressed with Gecko’s new in.k1000 touch screen display and in.stream 2, the new outdoor audio station for spas.
On in.clear water sanitization system for spas
In.clear is a relatively new system to Europa Spas but they really like the concept of adding one sanitization product after the initial filling of the water and then not having to worry about chemicals so much for the next few months.
They have the experience of dealing directly with the final customers, the spa owners, and they always get the same comment: “We really like to have a hot tub but we’re scared about the chemicals.” The word “chemicals” scares everybody and customers are afraid of doing something wrong that could endanger them, their family or their friends.
Also some spa owners will not engage in the difficult process necessary to keep their water nice and clean. In.clear makes sense because it’s easy to operate, simple to use and very user friendly.
So that’s why Europa Spas decided to give it a go and see how in.clear works.
Europa Spas sell in.clear as an option. For them, in.clear is a nice addition to have that gives the ability to offer something special that boosts the overall value of their spas. Generally speaking, the reception is really good. Their customers are quite ecstatic about it and see in.clear as a really nice addition.
in.clear has to be explained. Customers have to understand the concept on how to operate it and what parameters they have to set but once they get the grasp of it, they find in.clear very easy to use.
On in.clear and Europa Spas models
On some of their smaller models, Europa Spas sell in.clear with its small in.k200 keypad but larger models are equipped with in.k800 keypad with all the in.clear function built-in.
