Home' Splash Magazine : SPLASH Aug-Sept 2015 Contents tank it can be used to irrigate lawns and gardens," Bri-
stow says. " is provides additional and signi cant cost
savings of one of our most precious resources."
Waterco has added to its place as an Australian pool
product manufacturer to also become a pioneer of
healthier water systems.
"We nd more and more consumers are interested
in the use of their pools for hydrotherapy and tness,
pool owners are also becoming more aware of alternate
sanitisation systems, and there is a growing movement
away from traditional chlorinated pools," says Waterco
group marketing director Bryan Goh.
Waterco's naturally formulated Hydroxypure system,
which is the only sanitisation system to receive a tick of
approval from the National Asthma Council Australia,
uses a combination of hydrogen peroxide (H202) and hy-
brid ozone (03) in its Peroxone Treatment Process (PTP).
" is is considered the most signi cant innovation in
pool treatment in 20 years," says Goh. "It's known as the
new treatment process of the 21st century because of
the reaction's ability to remove all bacterial threats. It's
superior to other oxidation processes currently available
to the swimming pool market, and the synergy of the
two disinfectants ensures water environments are safe
without the creation of harmful chemical by-products."
Hydroxypure uses a combination of ozone and
hydrogen peroxide to create one of the most powerful
oxidisers in nature.
" e oxidisation potential of hydrogen peroxide and
ozone is much higher than any other sanitiser agent
used in swimming pools," he says. "Also, the combi-
nation of the two disinfectants does not create any
harmful chemical by-products as chlorine does. e
by-product of chlorine reacting with ammonia in the
water is the formation of chloramines, which can result
in stinging eyes and also a ect asthma su erers."
Waterco's sights are rmly xed on the commercial
pool market now that it has established a network of
Hydroxypure domestic dealers. "While we are still
facing hurdles from various state health departments,
we are well armed with a wealth of eld data and
laboratory reports that prove that this system is able to
satisfactory sanitise a commercial pool to meet health
department requirements," he says.
At Adelaide's Oaks Hotels & Resorts, Hydroxypure
was retro tted to the existing plant room due to ongo-
ing issues with chloramine odour.
"It was also important to nd ways to avoid detri-
mental comments on review sites such as Trip Advisor
in relation to the pool," says Hydroxypure's inventor,
Nick Briscoe. "Alternative products were considered but
they were not a 100 per cent chlorine-free substitute
that could be remotely monitored. In addition, having
an endorsement from the Sensitive Choice program
was de nitely an advantage."
Filtration also plays a part in creating healthier water.
From South Australia's rural water puri cation pro-
gram to a desalination plant in the Basra region of Iraq,
Waterco's Micron commercial breglass lter range has
also caught the attention of pool and water treatment
industries around the world.
Rapidly replacing traditional steel tanks due to their
lightweight, maintenance-free construction, breglass
lters weigh two-thirds less than their steel counterparts
-- making them cheaper to ship and easier to install.
" ese revolutionary lters can be customised to suit
public swimming pools, aquatic parks, hotel and resort
pools, aquaculture programs, cooling towers, drinking
water systems, food and beverage processing, industrial
processes, water features, zoos and aquariums," says Goh.
With environmental sustainability now a part of the
vernacular, it seems the concept of wellness is pushing
the commercial pool and aquatic industries to embrace
new products and services. Not only is this shift adding
to patron's options but also providing a new marketing
platform to showcase their o erings.
