PROBLEM:
We have difficulty getting bleacher seating where and when we need it.

SOLUTION:
The Speedy Bleacher system by Kay Park Recreation is highway-towable, push-button-operated and folds with hydraulics. The unit's simplistic design allows you to move it around town for parades, viewing stands and sporting events where seating other than normal, fixed seating is needed.

PROBLEM:
We're using too much water on our sports field.

SOLUTION:
The shift toward eco-friendly products and practices has never been so important. Installing a FieldTurf field can dramatically reduce water consumption. In fact, since FieldTurf's first field was installed in 1996, the company has saved an estimated 24 billion gallons of water. Add the elimination of 120 million pounds of pesticides and over 16 million pounds of carbon emissions resulting from the maintenance of natural grass fields, and FieldTurf stands out as the environmentally responsible choice.

Some of our patrons are cleaning fish in inappropriate areas.

SOLUTION:

The stations are made of stainless steel with poly cutting boards that don't take the edge off of filet knives. Other features include hose bib faucets, cold water pre-rinses with island brackets and an anti-rodent screen protector on the garbage disposal.

PROBLEM:
How does my facility become VGB-compliant?

SOLUTION:
Lincoln Aquatics is the source for helping your facility to be compliant with the new Virginia Graeme Baker (VGB) Pool and Spa Safety Act. Lincoln carries VGB-compliant main drain covers and sumps from four manufacturers. In addition, Lincoln can provide safety vacuum release systems (SVRS) that also comply with the new law.

PROBLEM:
How can a lifeguard signal for help while performing a water rescue?

SOLUTION:
A Safety Turtle water sensor attached to the lifeguard's rescue tube or wrist automatically signals a water rescue is under way. Audible alarming occurs instantaneously both at the pool and at the front desk. Safety Turtle allows a single guard to respond nearly immediately to an aquatic emergency, rather than having to first travel to an emergency call button, thereby compromising the 10-second standard for reaching the distressed swimmer.
