Best Practices for Keeping Water Properly Filtered

April 4, 2013 No Comments

“Our maintenance department conducts hourly checks of all pools for chemical levels. They also perform hourly checks of all controls and filter bays. Regular maintenance of the filtration equipment is conducted and we have back-up plans for all systems to ensure proper operation.”
-  Megan Fulbright, manager of operations, Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, Arlington, Texas

“We test each pool every hour during operation. Staff are constantly adding and adjusting chemicals to keep the pools clean and healthy.”
- David Riddles, general manager, White Water Bay, Oklahoma City, Okla.

“Your maintenance and water quality team has to know how to balance technology with hands-on maintenance. Water quality is a lot of science, but there is some art involved and the human element plays a role – at least for the foreseeable future. …Paying attention to details and having a disciplined staff to walk through equipment and pump rooms throughout the day is important, as it allows you to proactively address issues as they arise.”
- George Rohman, senior operations manager, Morey’s Piers Beachfront Waterparks, Wildwood, N.J.

“To keep the water clear and clean, you must make sure chlorine levels stay consistent, the water is balanced, and that back washes are done correctly. Monitoring chemicals in the water as well as the pumps and filters is paramount to ensuring sparkling, safe water.”
- Frank Morandi, general manager, Roaring Springs Waterpark, Boise, Idaho

Monitor, monitor, monitor! You can never check water too often.”
- Stephen Ball, general manager, Wild West Water Works at Frontier City, Oklahoma City, Okla.
