Prestige commercial filtration for FINA compliant pool
"Waterco manufactures reliable, robust water filters that are non-corrosive
and easy to maintain, they also provide exceptional after sales service
ensuring queries are answered quickly and issues promptly resolved."
says Gerrie Baldwin from Baldwin Aquatic.
With names like three-time Olympic gold medallist Grant Hackett, two-time gold medallist Melanie Wright and world record breaker Giaan Rooney, Bond University has an impressive history of fostering world-class swimmers.
To continue creating a pathway from junior swimmer to Olympic calibre, the campus decided to upgrade its 30-year-old aquatic facilities with a FINA-ratified 10-lane 25m swimming pool. Water treatment equipment, therefore, needed to be equally high-status.
Bond University has a rich history of high-quality swimmers coming through the university and they are adding to that every year.
Space-saving high performing commercial filter
In order to meet FINA’s strict standards and be eligible to host aquatic competitions, the short course competition pool was required to maintain impeccable water quality year-round. It also needed to be compatible with the existing 50m pool sand filtration equipment to reduce maintenance.
“We needed to provide a cost-effective filtration system that could ensure the highest of water quality,” says Gerrie Baldwin from Baldwin Aquatic. Specialists in commercial aquatic facilities, the family-owned company is the preferred choice for reputable institutions including St Andrew’s Anglican College, The University of the Sunshine Coast and Sunshine Coast Grammar School.
To ensure consistently clean and hygienic water for students and teachers, Baldwin Aquatic installed Waterco’s high-performance Micron Horizontal Filters (2 x M5000H).
Waterco’s Micron Commercial fibreglass filters are made from continuous strands of high quality fiberglass filament wound under controlled tension to create a seamless, impervious vessel. This produces a filter that is free from welds or seams, or special tank linings that typically corrode or electrolyse.
Setting new global benchmarks in durability, versatility, reliability and longevity, Waterco’s Micron fibreglass range is the preferred choice for commercial and industrial operations demanding superior water quality.
“Waterco manufactures reliable, robust water filters that are non-corrosive and easy to maintain,” says Gerrie. “They also provide exceptional after sales service ensuring queries are answered quickly and issues promptly resolved.”

World class sporting facilities
The new aquatic facility will accommodate bigger squad sizes and increase Bond’s sport program, while also helping attract prestigious swimming competitions to the Gold Coast.
Bond University director of swimming Kyle Samuelson said it was exciting to see the construction going up.
“We have a rich history of high-quality swimmers coming through the university and we are adding to that every year,” he says.
“We feel strongly about creating a pathway from junior swimmer to the elite level and having the additional pool will contribute heavily to this strategy.”
