The patented technology that makes Pool Tiger so effective was originally developed for the oil business.
More than a decade ago, Randy Sellers, now President and CEO of Pool Tiger, was a partner in some oil leases located within an environmentally-sensitive area. Waste water from the drilling operation had begun to accumulate so rapidly that it had to be periodically trucked away to a disposal facility. Over time, the expense involved became so great that it jeopardized the viability of the operation itself.
Seeking a cost-effective solution, Randy turned to Gary Powell, a world-renowned water consultant and engineer. After much study, Gary devised a method to break down the organic compounds in petroleum as well as to eliminate the suspended minerals and other particles. He called the principle upon which his method was based, Hydrodynamic Cavitation. Then he set about designing a prototype to incorporate this principle.
The price tag for his one-of-a-kind unit was more than $20 million, but the results were fantastic. It worked so well that what had once been smelly, oil-and-salt-infused waste water was rendered into the equivalent of distilled water – like the kind you might buy in a grocery store.
After this success, Gary continued to tinker with his concept and eventually developed the first Pool Tiger prototype. This he installed on his own pool and achieved similarly remarkable results. Word spread and soon he began receiving requests to build more units for friends and neighbors. When they experienced the same kind of results that he had experienced on his pool, he knew the concept had been proven beyond any doubt.
A phone call was placed to his old associate Randy and in time a partnership was formed to market Pool Tiger to the public.
Another product, called Polar Vortex, was also developed. This unit utilizes essentially the same principle as Pool Tiger, only it was designed for snow-making and is now being sold to ski resorts all over the U.S. and Canada. Polar Vortex makes 75% more snow using the same amount of water as conventional snow makers.
