Safety & Maintenance Considerations for Successful Splashpad Design

There’s no denying the popularity of Splashpads in large and small communities across the nation. In many cases, Splashpads are replacing old wading pools. In others, a Splashpad is being introduced in lieu of a swimming pool or as a brand-new attraction.

Beneath the eye-catching features of these attractions is an intricate system that controls water usage and quality, and ensures your attraction is safe, efficient and sustainable over time. When it comes to sanitation, and chemical, mechanical and preventive maintenance, water management and a well-thought-out maintenance program is at the heart of every successful Splashpad design project.

The key to successfully maintaining a Splashpad is to design and install it with maintenance in mind.

In this presentation you will:

  • Explore the different maintenance requirements for flowthrough and recirculation water management systems, and how this impacts design.
  • Discover Splashpad design strategies to mitigate some of the more common maintenance issues.
  • Gain an understanding of systems, maintenance requirements and lifecycle, and how to integrate the right solutions at the project design stage.
