Announcing SCUMBUG PLUS -The easy way to capture and remove pool and spa surface crud.

St. Paul MN, October 30, 2018, Paradise a trusted Rola-Chem brand has announced the immediate availability of the SCUMBUG PLUS.

“The SCUMBUG PLUS is a new bigger version of the widely used, original Scumbug. Pool and Spa owners around the world have long used our bug shaped foam surface scrubber to improve water quality.” Stated Mark Lynch, Rola-Chem brand manager.

When placed in a clean spa, SCUMBUG PLUS floats freely where it helps to prevent the formation of a scum line. The new Bigger Bug has roughly 20% more surface area than the original. This additional surface area enables the SCUMBUG PLUS to absorb 40 times its weight in body oils, suntan lotions and pollens.

In residential and commercial pools, the SCUMBUG PLUS gets placed in the pool’s filter basket and acts as a prefilter, providing a boost to water quality and clarity.

Under normal conditions, SCUMBUG PLUS can be expected to last for an average swimming season. It can also be easily cleaned with soap, rinsed with water and reused.

Like the original Scumbug, SCUMBUG PLUS is available via Amazon.com and through Rola-Chem’s nationwide retail and dealer network.
