San Diego – Nov. 24, 2014 – Zodiac® Pool Systems, Inc., has reached a settlement agreement with plaintiffs which, after court approval, will bring to a close Zodiac’s involvement in two class actions that resulted from an earlier FTC investigation alleging that PoolCorp had used its position as the largest distributor in the swimming pool products industry to limit competition. Zodiac settled this matter to avoid protracted litigation and the expense that results from antitrust lawsuits, even for defendants who ultimately prevail at trial.
On Tuesday, Oct 18th, Zodiac Pool Systems will honor our Canadian Vice President and General Manager Terry Sloan as he retires after 42 years of distinguished service with Jandy and Zodiac’s Canadian offices. Terry is stepping down to spend more time with his wife, Jeannette. Terry began his career with Teledyne in 1969 in Ontario, Canada. He then went on to become Vice President, International Sales, Pool Systems with Teledyne Laars. In February 2008, Terry was promoted to Vice President, General Manager for Zodiac and Jandy Canadian Operations. Terry has been an inspirational leader and good friend to many, both within and outside of the company. We are very thankful for Terry’s many contributions and his commitment over the years he has served Zodiac. Have a great retirement, Terry, and stop in and see us once in awhile!
Good Luck in all your future endeavors, Terry!
"I first met Terry when he came into the Canadian pool and hot tub industry in the early 80’s. If one statement best describes Terry Sloan it’s ‘He is a great mediator’. He and I worked on a number of contestable projects with the National Pool Association and he had the extraordinary tact that was always needed to get things done. I also count him as one of the great friends that I took away from the industry as he was always there to listen and help you with your problems. The pool and hot tub industry will miss him but perhaps his friends will now have more time with him!
Best Wishes, Terry."

"Professional, Gentleman, Mentor, Friend, Warrior. To me, Terry represents the very best of all of these. It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye from the company and the industry. Your wise words and intuition will be missed. However, Lily and I are so very very glad for you, Jeanette and your family. We trust that the priorities in your life can now shift and that you will have a new type of "Plan" to meet that focuses on family and friends, and we look forward to hearing from you from time to time."
Sincere Best Wishes, Gary and Lily Scott
"Terry has been one of the most well respected supplier contacts Aquiform has ever had. He has seen our company transition from one generation to the next and his dealings with both levels of management has always been straight forward and sincere. He’s a straight shooter, and was always well dressed. He is truly a "gentleman". He has always been true to his word and it has been a pleasure over these last 10 or so years that I have been at the helm to do business with Terry. From the time I met Terry until now – I swear the man has never aged. He has to tell everyone what his secret is. In closing – Terry will always be welcomed here at Aquiform and we all wish him a very pleasant retirement, that he so well deserves."
