PROBLEM:
Our restrooms suffer from odors, as well as high pumping and cleaning costs.

SOLUTION:
Biological Mediation Systems' proven solution with patented technology reduces odors, pumping costs and cleaning labor. Using cutting-edge, waterless vault technology, the application is effective for remote back-country or heavy front locations. Fresh air is continually pulled into the vault mechanically through the toilet riser, urinal and floor drain. Air then enters the waste-reduction system and is exhausted through a vent pipe in the roof.

Our park benches are rusting. How can we reduce maintenance requirements?

SOLUTION:
An all-plastic bench will help avoid rusting problems. The bench pictured also has stainless-steel fasteners to prevent rusting. Anchor kits are available for a nominal charge. Plastic benches are less expensive than steel benches and feature a 50-year limited warranty. They are available in a wide variety of colors and can be custom-built, including engraving services, and shipped directly.

PROBLEM:
How can we get a scoreboard that will provide adequate game information for all events?

SOLUTION:
Many parks and recreational facilities accommodate multiple sports on the same fields or courts. Fair-Play Scoreboards offers a complete line of multipurpose scoreboards that can be used for a number of sports and incorporate two- or four-digit clocks to display time remaining. The stylish MP-7200-2 multipurpose scoreboard (pictured) is highly recommended.

PROBLEM:
The cost and maintenance associated with chlorine have become a real problem for our pool.

SOLUTION:
Commercial pools face tough operating conditions, and salt chlorination is one way to reduce the headaches. ECOmatic Commercial Saltwater Systems effectively stabilize the price of chlorine, which has increased over 300 percent recently. They provide commercial pool facilities with a means to eliminate the need for on-site chlorine storage, thereby reducing hassles and the risk of fire. They also reduce operating costs and maintenance fees.
