Glacier Pool Coolers Expands its Reach and ‘Gaines’ Support From Olympic Swimmer 

(Scottsdale, Ariz., July 6, 2017) – As the country hits record-breaking temperatures, Arizona-based Glacier Pool Coolers continues to be the leader in swimming pool chilling systems. What started out as a good idea in 2003 has become a thriving business. Glacier's recipe for success for almost 15 years might be defined in just one word; diversify.

Developed and patented by Rick Argovitz, Glacier Pool Coolers works to cool pressurized water by airflow created by the unit’s fan. The chilled water is pumped back into the pool creating colder water over the next 12 to 14 hours. Temperatures can decrease by as much as 15 degrees. The fan based system does not need Freon or gas and easily installs into existing pool plumbing systems and automated controls. It costs pennies a day to operate after it’s installed.

“Beyond personal use, we saw a real need in the commercial space to keep pools cool year-round,” says Rick Argovitz, co-owner and founder. “Many of our biggest clients are resorts like the Westin Kierland Resort and Spa and Talking Stick Resort and Casino in Scottsdale, Arizona, the Waldorf Astoria luxury hotels in Orlando and Key West, Florida and the Las Ventanas Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico.”

Rick and his wife Mindy, also co-owner of the company, further saw a need for the cooling system beyond just people.

“Zoos, marine and wildlife rehabilitation centers, aquaponic and hydroponic farms, and fish hatcheries are all benefiting from Glacier's product line,” says Rick. “The Phoenix and Cincinatti Zoos, The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) in Sanibel Island, FL, FarmedHere LLC in Illinois and fish hatcheries throughout the U.S. are some examples of how unique some of the spaces we are in really are.” 

Aquatic centers at a number of military bases and schools like Arizona State University, water parks like Wild River Country in Little Rock, AR, and county parks and recreation centers like those in the City of Lakeland, FL area are all enjoying the benefits of Glacier's swimming pool chillers. 

The company also helps the community when needed. Recently, Glacier Pool Coolers installed one of its patented systems in the outdoor pool located at the Lake Nona YMCA in Orlando, FL. The donation was not lost on Vice President of Aquatics for YMCA of Central Florida, Rowdy Gaines. Gaines is also a three-time Olympic gold medalist.

“Glacier Pool Coolers has completely transformed our YMCA Family Center in Orlando, FL.,” said Gaines. “Previously we had to cancel swim lessons because the water was too hot and our members were having problems swimming even recreational laps. We now have a cool pool and happy swimmers during the hot summer days in Florida.”

A product once labeled as a luxury for many has ended up being a necessity as summers become more extreme. Glacier Pool Coolers has always prided itself as an efficient and economical alternative to heat pump chillers. For more information go to glacierpoolcoolers.com or call 480-272-7700.
