Zodiac Pool Systems has acquired California-based Grand Effects and its portfolio of custom outdoor fire and water combination features for pools and spas.

The acquisition is the latest in a series of strategic acquisitions by Zodiac to provide its customers a wider product selection, especially in the high-end market.

“Grand Effects enhances our premium product offering to Zodiac customers and gives them added options to create an incredible backyard experience for pool owners," says Troy Franzen, managing director at Zodiac. “It’s a great fit because our customers expect top-of-the-line innovative products, and that’s exactly what Grand Effects delivers.”

“We are extremely excited to partner with Zodiac,” says Kevin Doud, founder and senior vice president of Grand Effects. “They are an industry leader and, by joining forces, we’ll not only be able to expand and enhance our product line, but also be able to reach new markets.”
