Waterco Products Provide Superior Water Quality Down Under Aquatics Down Under Swim School is a popular facility in New South Wales but after the state government’s planning authority approved a multimillion-dollar expansion of North Rocks Shopping Centre, it meant the school’s existing 45-year-old swimming pool had to be re-built in a different location within the complex. The new design needed to comfortably accommodate up to 1,500 people and the goal was to create a community asset and expand aquatic services beyond learn-to-swim classes. When TradeMark Pools constructed the new pool for Aquatics Down Under, Director Mark Holland chose a range of Waterco products to provide swimmers with healthy water and comfortable pool temperatures year-round. Capable of filtering below 3 microns, Glass Pearl filter media was used to deliver outstanding water clarity – more than any other granular filter media on the market. Its spherical, smooth shape significantly reduces backwash time, providing valuable water and chemical savings.

Waterco’s multi-award-winning MultiCyclone 70XL – the only centrifugal filter built for commercial installations – pre-filters up to 80% of the incoming dirt load prior to it reaching the main filter. This increases the filter media’s lifespan whilst reducing backwash frequency and water use. Purpose-built for commercial pools, Waterco’s new Hydrostar pumps were chosen and they operate with lower noise levels and improved hydraulic efficiency. The pump body does not rust or corrode and is able to withstand damage from many types of water treatment chemicals. Designed to heat up to 250,000 litres, Waterco’s Electroheat PRO is the latest advancement in commercial size swimming pool heating. It delivers efficient costeffective pool heating in an easy-to-operate and install package. Lastly, Waterco’s Micron Side Mount Media Filters were installed which feature ‘Fish tail’ hydraulically balanced laterals that improve its filtration and backwashing hydraulic efficiency. Once installed, there is virtually no maintenance or repairs required.
