Fluidra and Insnrg reach settlement in patent dispute

December 1, 2021

Insnrg Techne Pty Ltd and Fluidra Australia have reached a settlement in relation to patent disputes involving two models of Insnrg’s variable speed pumps and two of their chlorinators.

Fluidra’s marketing director Jonas Ryberg says that Fluidra is the registered owner of various patents relating to such variable speed pumps and chlorinators.

“Since June 2020, and up until recently, the parties have been engaged in correspondence regarding this matter. In the interest of avoiding further costs and inconvenience for both parties, without admitting liability, Insnrg has agreed to modify certain features of the two variable speed pumps and one of its chlorinators, and to pay royalties to Fluidra on the sales of those variable speed pumps and the other chlorinator.

“Fluidra invests significantly in the development of innovative, Australian-made products, and in obtaining and maintaining patent protection for those products. As demonstrated by its recent actions, Fluidra will take all steps necessary to enforce those patents and protect its intellectual property when required,” he says.
