UNIVERSITY OF THE SUNSHINE COAST
Health and Sport Centre Tower, School of Health and Sport Sciences.
Elite aquatic training and competitive swimming facility.
The University of the Sunshine Coast’s use of inline chlorination at its School of Health and Sport Sciences demonstrates that the aquatic industry’s traditional dependence on liquid or granular chlorine is unnecessary even at TDS levels 80% lower than standard salt water pools.
100kms north of Brisbane, The University of the Sunshine Coast (USC) is one of Australia’s fastest growing universities. The 100 hectare campus includes an impressive School of Health and Sport Sciences, located in the Health and Sport Centre Tower. Its 2 million litre, 10-lane, Olympic-standard 50-metre heated pool is one of many advanced facilities available for the delivery of programs such as occupational therapy, nutrition and dietetics, sport science, nursing and paramedic science.
Open to the public. Used by elite athletes. Protected by EcoLineTM.
While also open to the general public, this pool also takes pride in its role as a training facility for world class elite athletes. It is frequently used by Paralympic athletes who have represented Australia at the Beijing and London Paralympic Games. As a centre for sport research and development, USC sets a high bar for the standard of water quality in its pool. In 2011 USC commissioned the EcoLine FSRC inline chlorinator that continues to protect elite athletes and local families alike, keeping them safe from waterborne pathogens and the transmission of infectious disease.
Couldn’t be happier.
Nathan Gordon, Manager of Sport at USC, couldn’t be happier with the EcoLine technology. “This is an Olympic-size teaching and learning pool annexed to a High Performance Training Centre, so we have to maintain very high water quality and hygiene standards. With the EcoLine technology there’s no need to have drums of chemicals in store. Our pool room is tidy, dry and clean. The EcoLine system is plumbed in, easy to use and utterly hassle free. We just set it, check it and walk away. It just works.”
