Neptune Benson, leading manufacturer of commercial aquatic filtration systems, ultraviolet disinfection systems and aquatics components is proud to have installed the Defender® Regenerative Media Filter in the newly renovated Canowindra Pool Complex in New South Wales, Australia.
The Neptune Benson Defender® Regenerative Filtration System was chosen for its superior water quality output as well as sustainability. Before installation of the filters the old system was backwashed weekly using around 40,000 liters (approx 10,500 gallons) of water. By using the Defender® Filtration system there is 90% less water usage. In addition to the tremendous water savings, the Defender® removes particles down to 1 micron or less resulting in clean crystal clear water.
“We love the Neptune Benson Defender® filtration equipment Beau Corp installed for our Canowindra pools. Beau Corp Aquatics recommendation of Defender® filtration has proven to provide sustainability and financial viability for us. Our summer season saw an increase of traffic by 48%, with exceptional high water quality delivered daily. We noticed an increased volume of people commenting on the reduced concentrations of chlorine in the aquatic centre, which allowed for maximum user comfort. Traditionally, prior to the upgrade, we had high chemical residuals due to super chlorination requirements,” states Jarrod Strange, Pool Manager of Canowindra.
The Canowindra Pool Complex formerly known as the Charles McCarron Baths celebrated their 60 year anniversary with a grand reopening and renovation project of the complex earlier this season. The project converted the 33 meter pool into a 25 meter lap pool, added a children’s program pool with a beach style entry and water features, computerized timing equipment, solar heating and a state of the art pump and filtration technology for the pools.
Michael Hoy of Beau Corp Aquatics recommended the Neptune Benson Defender® because it would have an annual water savings of more than 1 million liters (approx 255,000 gallons). The energy savings on the VFD pumps will save in excess of 60% on the overall annual power bills.
“These intelligent Defender® systems eliminate over 90% of the backwash associated with sand filter operations and use a quarter of the space occupancy. Delivering these and other sustainable, smart, green ambitions are what Beau Corp does best” says Michael Hoy of Beau Corp Aquatics. “We are enormously proud of our work and the impact it has on our environment. Beau Corp has built aquatic centres all over Australia and is committed to water savings for our clients and highly recommends the Smart Approved WaterMark Defender® equipment. It is user friendly to install, and benefits our clients enormously.”
In 2013, Defender® regenerative media filters received certification by the Australian “Smart Watermark Program” in recognition of its water saving qualities. Defender® is the only filter of its type to ever receive such recognition.
