“We are pleased to provide the aquatic filter for such a worthy cause, we hope everyone will tune in or visit the event and donate to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy- there is still so much work to be done.” - Barry Gertz, CEO-Neptune-Benson

Neptune-Benson, a leading manufacturer of commercial pool filtration systems, is a proud supplier of the 2013 NYAD48 in Herald Square in NYC.

On October 8-10, 2013, Diana Nyad will swim again, this time with no jellyfish or sharks but in a Myrtha pool with a Neptune-Benson filtration system. Diana Nyad will swim for 48 consecutive hours to raise money for a great cause. Myrtha has specially designed a pool for the event, being built in New York City’s Herald Square just outside of Macy’s .

The two companies have teamed up on several occasions in this fashion, converting large capacity arenas into the temporary center of the aquatics universe. There are many victims that need help after suffering the devastation that Superstorm Sandy left in her wake. The hope is to raise awareness and money for these victims to help them to resume their lives the way they were before this storm hit. This 48 hour swim will not only have Diana Nyad swimming but others donating for the opportunity to swim a few laps with Diana Nyad. “We are pleased to provide the aquatic filter for such a worthy cause, we hope everyone will tune in or visit the event and donate to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy- there is still so much work to be done.”
