Pool and Spa News Names AQUA-SHIELD a Top 50 Product

MAY 16, 2018

ST. LOUIS – May 16, 2018 – Nidec Motor Corporation’s AQUA-SHIELD® motors are consumers’ top choice for pool motors and among their top 50 pool-related products, according to Pool & Spa News, a leading source of product information, marketing and management tips, and design ideas for professionals in the pool and spa market. The chosen products are the result of reader response to the Pool & Spa News’ 2018 New Products issue. AQUA-SHIELD® was the only motor line that made the list.

Nidec designed the U. S. Motors® brand AQUA-SHIELD® motors to provide superior moisture resistance with four levels of water and debris protection. They are constructed with four layers of bearing protection— fully-sealed ball bearings, lip seal and water slinger — as well as an internal bearing cover to protect the drive end bearings from heat. Optimized internal airflow keeps the motor cooler and minimizes moisture buildup.

Its easy-to-access drive shaft, high-visibility angled terminal board and capability to change voltage (115v to 230v) with a flip of the switch makes AQUA-SHIELD® one of the easiest and quickest motors to install on the market today.
