ESPLANADE LAGOON, CAIRNS
INSTALLED BY THE POOL MAN HOTELS, RESORTS, CASINOS AND SPAS
The Esplanade Lagoon on the foreshore is one of Cairns’ famous landmarks no doubt made all the more memorable by the unique Woven Fish stainless steel sculptures that emerge out of the water.
AutoChlorTM: ideal for foreshore pools using seawater.
Used by residents and tourists alike, the enormous 4,800 m2 facility sources salt-water from the adjacent sea inlet. Cairns based swimming pool supplies and installation firm, The Pool Man was appointed to install an AutoChlorTM AC-2000 inline chlorine generator alongside the lagoon’s water filtration systems in 2003.
More convenient than buying, storing & dosing sodium hypochlorite.
Commenting on his experience with AutoChlorTM at Esplanade Lagoon, Paul Musetti, director of The Pool Man, said “Since the Esplanade Lagoon has opened its popularity has been so great that bather loads way exceeded the original forecast. In 2009 we had to expand the pool’s disinfection capability. That could have been achieved by complementing the AutoChlorTM unit with traditional chlorine dosing as and when needed. But satisfaction with the technology was so great that it was decided instead to install a second AutoChlorTM unit in 2009, which is far more convenient than reverting to the hassle of buying, storing and dosing sodium hypochlorite.”
Paul has also successfully installed AutoChlorTM commercial inline chlorinators in other nearby schools, hotels and resorts. “We’re really happy with the technology itself as well as the excellent after sales service and support provided by the engineers and technicians at AIS,” he said.
