'As with most projects, the most important requirement is water quality,'says Michael Turner, Vice President of International Business Development for Neptune-Benson.

Neptune-Benson, a leading manufacturer of commercial pool filtration systems, ETS-UV disinfection systems, and Lawson Aquatics components, is a proud to be chosen to supply their award-winning Defender® aquatic filtration system to the Lotte World Gimhae Waterpark in South Korea.

For any installation of this size, water savings is a huge consideration; with a flow rate of 5,394m3 per hour it is crucial to use a water saving device. The Defender Regenerative Media Filter eliminates over 90% of the backwash water associated with sand filter operation. The dramatic reduction of backwash waste directly translates to savings in chemicals and fuels for reheating associated with make-up water. If Lotte World Gimhae had chosen sand filters, 33 would be needed to replace 20 Defender filters.

Lotte World is set to open in 2014 in Gimhae, near Busan, South Korea. The park will have both indoor and outdoor attractions all supported by 20 Neptune-Benson Defenders. Neptune-Benson Defender® was chosen for water quality as well as sustainability. By using Defender® there is 90% less water and waste, 30% less fuel and chemicals used, 75% smaller footprint as well as 50% less electrical power required.
“As with most projects, the most important requirement is water quality,” says Michael Turner, Vice President of International Business Development for Neptune-Benson. “The Defender regenerative media filter was chosen because it constantly produces the cleanest and safest water available”.

The Defender removes particles down to 1 micron or less.
