Crystal clear swimming pools keep community active

Problem

The Sunshine Coast Regional Council owns and maintains several public swimming pools in and around Nambour, Coolum, Caloundra, Cotton Tree and Eumundi. With clean water of vital importance to these community assets, the Council demanded a quality upgrade and refurbishment of pool maintenance systems to ensure the ongoing health and enjoyment of the community.

Irrigear Solution

Irrigear store – Aqua-Power was commissioned to repair existing systems, install new equipment where required and provide ongoing maintenance. A work program was designed after reviewing and testing of the facilities and water quality.

Large pool pumps were replaced with new systems in swimming pools in Nambour and Coolum. Sand filters were replaced in a learner pool in Coolum.

General maintenance and repair was undertaken in swimming pools in Caloundra, Cotton Tree and Eumundi.

Results

The Sunshine Coast Regional Council was very satisfied with the system upgrades. Increased efficiency of the new swimming pool equipment and the superior performance of upgraded pumps and filters ensured costs were reduced to taxpayers and high quality water was enjoyed by the people of the Sunshine Coast.

Sports oval revamp scores green pitch all year round

Problem

Wagga Wagga City Council was redeveloping a local sports oval to include a multi-purpose facility capable of holding cricket, aussie rules and rugby league matches all year round. Robertson Oval’s multi-million dollar revamp needed a world-class irrigation system that delivered water to infields, outfields and new spectator areas.

Irrigear Solution

Irrigear store - Southwest Irrigation consulted with Council and architects before designing a sophisticated irrigation system that considered priorities of player safety and equipment longevity.

143 sportsturf sprinklers were installed - Hunter I-35 & I-25 - controlled by 21 electric solenoid valves.

Plasson Poly Fittings and Iplex Pipelings supplied the treated effluent water to the site.

Results

The city of Wagga Wagga now enjoys a premier sporting venue capable of hosting numerous football games and sporting competitions.

The irrigation system is discretely installed to safely protect sportsmen and women in play and its design has increased water efficiency and lowered running costs and taxpayer expense.

Cleaner sportsgrounds as council improves water filtration

Problem

The Cootamundra Shire Council could not keep up with a growing demand for town water. A water filtration system that treated effluent water for irrigating sportsgrounds and parks was in drastic need of an upgrade.

Irrigear Solution

Irrigear store - Southwest Irrigation provided a full-system design and installation of a brand new water filtration system, consisting of;

  • Toro Australia 3 x 48 inch Automatic Backflush
  • Toro Sand Media Filter System
  • Iplex Pipelines
  • Plasson Poly Fittings

Sand tanks were used as part of an automated media filtration system, replacing the antiquated legacy screen filtration system.

A high operating pressure - 1100 kpa – required the use of purpose-built stainless steel tanks.

Results

The system was installed, tested and exceeded expectations of the Cootamundra Shire Council. The Irrigear solution delivered superior grade filtration that provided cleaner water to service parks and sporting grounds and saved taxpayer expense by reducing overall running costs.
