    1. Site Visit to Turtle Beach Resort – Thursday 17th July

    Site visit co sponsor

    Join Nick Briscoe, Waterco and the team at the award-winning Turtle Beach Resort on Queensland’s Gold Coast, where the swimming pools are a key drawcard. There are four separate swimming areas, including a children’s wading pool, an adult’s only pool, lagoon pool, lap pool, in addition to four spas.

    With large volumes of water, the resort’s maintenance team were previously faced with a number of challenges trying to maintain the pools and spas. The resort team were initially very sceptical that it would work and that it would be approved for use by the local authority (Gold Coast Council).

    Council was briefed on the Hydroxypure system prior to it being installed and it approved a six month trial with a strict testing regime. The Hydroxypure system was subsequently retrofitted to the existing pool plumbing system, but first the resort wanted to completely drain the pool and water feature and start again with fresh water in order to remove the salt. Additionally, the media filters were all changed to Waterco Glass Pearls in order to improve filtration quality.

    “It really highlights the versatility of the Hydroxypure system to be retrofitted to older commercial pools,” Briscoe says. “There are many such pools which will face the same challenges, so it is important to know that the Hydroxypure system can be adapted to work on just about any hydraulic situation.”

    Nick Briscoe, inventor of the Hydroxypure system, will be on hand to answer any questions about the system and departure from Jupiters at 730 and be back at  SPLASH! by 10am for the second day of the show, education and networking.
