A lot of people don’t know this but Kreepy Krauly is a second-generation Western Australian family business started over 40 years ago by Terry Jackson.
Kreepy Krauly’s unique cleaning action was pioneered by Ferdinand Chauvier, a South African hydraulics engineer who was seeking a solution to the laborious task of cleaning a swimming pool.
Chauvier’s first machine was revolutionary. However, the early prototypes would only last a few weeks. Terry, who was the managing director of a company manufacturing above-ground pools, brought Chauvier’s prototype to Australia and set about refining it for the local market.
Every component was completely re-designed and new materials utilised to enable the machine to be totally manufactured from durable injection and extrusion-moulded materials.
Wanting to provide Australian families with more time to enjoy their backyard pool Terry paired up with Ferdinand Chauvier to create the Kreepy Krauly pool cleaner. Designed to minimise the time spent cleaning and maximise the opportunity for enjoyment in your pool.
The first Australian-designed Kreepy Krauly was launched in 1976 and was an immediate success. Not long after Terry started exporting the new, vastly improved Australian model around the world.
Every Kreepy Krauly has been designed to “set and forget”. That means your swimming pool will be swim-ready year-round, allowing you to spend your precious time on the more important moments in life.
