Waterco Provide Pool And Spa Solutions For Luxury Boutique Hotel

Having been vacant for over a decade, the 17th Century Grade II* listed Langley Park House in South Buckinghamshire has been given a new lease of life as the 5 Star Langley Park Hotel. The £30m landmark development features a major subterranean extension to provide a luxury, full-service spa and swimming pool facility fitted with Waterco’s world-class commercial filtration solutions. Transforming a heritage-listed site into a destination wellness retreat requires solutions that are not only hard wearing and reliable but which also enhance the quality of the water, as opposed to merely filtering it. With vast knowledge in designing and constructing a variety of luxury wellness features, Aqua Platinum Projects understand the requirements that are necessary to create a high-quality facility with incredible functionality whilst also ensuring the user experiences ultimate relaxation. “With a project of this calibre it is imperative that the filtration system is of the very highest quality and can continue to produce consistently superior results,” said Aqua Platinum Projects Managing Director, Ryan Fronda. “That’s why we only use

and recommend Waterco filtration and pumps for all our installations, particularly for high profile projects of this type.” Working in conjunction with their preferred distributor, Paramount Products, Ryan’s team installed ten Micron fibreglass filters and over 20 pumps from the brand across the hotel’s two pools and three spas. Knowing that the globally renowned water filtration specialists at Waterco have been manufacturing and supplying equipment for over 30 years – all over the world and in many different applications – meant that the team at Aqua Platinum Projects had full confidence in both the supply, quality of the product, and impeccable after-sales service. “Waterco’s commercial filters and pumps provide high-quality pool and spa water for guests, and a low maintenance solution for staff,” added Ryan.

In The Swim – As Newcastle Pool Opens

A new, state-of-the-art learn to swim centre has welcomed its first wave of swimmers. PaddlePod @ Newcastle, near Gosforth Park, is the first of two new swim centres devised by North East entrepreneur and former swimming coach Phil Groom. And along with swimming lessons for babies, toddlers, children and adults, it offers a range of other activities, therapies and classes – from yoga and music to cookery and dance. At the heart of the purpose-built centre is a 25m pool, with modern changing facilities, where more than 450 swimming lessons will be held each week. Parents and family members can also watch the lessons from an on site café, with an integrated play area, to keep siblings engaged and entertained. The aim behind PaddlePod @ Newcastle – and its sister site, PaddlePod @ North Tyneside, scheduled to open at New York Road, Shiremoor in spring 2020 – is to create a truly family-centred environment, where swimming sits alongside other educational and developmental activities. “The idea was always that this would be more than just a swimming pool,” said PaddlePod founder and director Phil Groom. “We wanted to make swimming lessons a positive experience for all involved – whether they are in the water, a parent watching from the side, or a younger sibling being brought along while their older brother or sister swims.” Phil, a former swimming coach, drew on considerable experience in setting up PaddlePod, having founded SwimNE in 2006 for adults and children, followed by Nemo Swimming in 2009 for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers to learn to swim.
