PROBLEM:
How do you design an aquatic play space to accommodate future growth?

SOLUTION:
A detach and exchange (DEX) system provides the flexibility to phase, swap and transform the design of your play space as community needs change. Stage your design into a five-year plan that adds new development each year, swap out play features to keep the look and feel fresh and change the layout completely to allow for seasonal activities that keep your community active even in the cold winter months.

PROBLEM:
Offer a safe alternative to synthetic turf infill. Reason, real or imagined, infill is in the "dog house" because the public is concerned about infill being a health hazard when used on synthetic turf athletic fields, playgrounds, landscaping and other surfaces.

SOLUTION:
Remove the need for infill by gluing synthetic turf to a shock absorbent underlayment. Bond and install the two surfaces by using an all-weather and durable one-part NORDOT® urethane adhesive.

PROBLEM:
Seaside, Ore., Sunset Aquatic Center's pool chloramine level was causing eye burn and breathing irritation for swimmers.

SOLUTION:
WMS Aquatics was chosen to install low-pressure ChlorKing UV to destroy chloramines and solve the problem. Now, the chloramine level at the facility does not go above 0.3 ppm, 24/7. The smell and eye burn are eliminated. Their pool is clear. Patrons notice the difference and are very happy that Sunset chose ChlorKing for its teaching pool, lap pool and spa.

PROBLEM:
How can we accurately monitor chlorine levels?

SOLUTION:
The new CP-1 Free Chlorine/Bromine Sensor provides a direct residual PPM measurement of pool water. The CP-1 sensor is based on a new technology that is virtually maintenance-free—without membranes or electrolytes needing replacement. BECSys7, BECSys5 and BECSys 3 controllers can all use this CP-1 sensor to control residual sanitizer levels, resulting in a more stable PPM level than when using an ORP set point.
