The Defender Filter is now being described as the industry standard for the cleanest, safest water available anywhere.

Neptune Benson, a leading manufacturer of commercial pool filtration systems, UV disinfection systems, and aquatics components, is proud to treat the water for the OLYMPIC Pool & Fitness Centre in Newmarket, New Zealand.

The OLYMPIC Pool & Fitness Center is the first pool in New Zealand to use the Defender® Regenerative Media System to treat its pool water. The facility has the distinction of being Auckland’s only 50 meter pool and hosts approximately 1,500 visitors per day, most of which take part in the many aquatic activities. With this many bathers, water safety becomes paramount.

The award-winning Defender® Regenerative media filter removes particles down to 1 micron or less. When it comes to water quality, the smaller the particle removal the better. Defender® removes over 99.0% of Crypto in a single pass.

For any installation of this size, water savings are a huge consideration; 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.

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% reduction in electricity.

“Ian Coombes Ltd is proud to be involved as the supplier and installer of the Defender® filter at the OLYMPIC,” says Ian Coombes General Manager Ben Coombes. “The two week installation time was achieved, meaning less down time and the crystal clear water is second to none.”
