Healthy Waterco water for learn-to-swim students
"Waterco’s commercial filters are designed and built for high performance and reliability,
and enables us to satisfy our clients high expectations."
says Gerrie Baldwin from Baldwin Aquatic
Swimmers and water therapy patients on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast have a contemporary new pool powered by Waterco that provides the hinterland community with high-quality healthcare amenities.
The Beerwah Aquatic Centre’s $1.8 million upgrade – which was made possible with capital funding from the Sunshine Coast Council ($1.04 million) in a funding partnership with on-site operators Swim Fit ($260,000) and with grant funding ($500,000) from the Australian Government through Sport Australia – is already leading to healthier lives.
Multi-million-dollar upgrade for community asset
Part of the upgrade involved constructing a learn-to-swim pool sited adjacent to the existing 25m training pool. Plans also included a new equipment room to be installed in the existing plant space.
“The challenge was to provide the centre with a new state-of-the-art filtration system for the new pool that would fit into the existing outdoor/indoor space without compromising existing structures,” explains Gerrie Baldwin from Baldwin Aquatic. Family-owned and operated since 1982, Baldwin Aquatic are commercial swimming pool specialists in construction, filtration and maintenance for aquatic centres and resort pools.

State-of-the-art commercial filtration system
To ensure consistently clean and hygienic water for students and teachers, Gerrie Baldwin installed Waterco’s Micron Commercial Fibreglass Filters (3 x SMD1200).
Micron Sidemount Deep Bed Filters
The effect of deep media bed improves the filtration efficiency over standard High-rate filters by providing enhanced in-depth filtration and increased dirt capacity.
Manufactured from the highest grade of non-corrosive materials and employing the latest in fibreglass winding technology, Micron filters are designed and built for many years of trouble-free operation.
“Waterco’s commercial filters are designed and built for high performance and reliability, which are crucial for facilities like this,” says Gerrie. “Our clients demand the best from Baldwin Aquatic and Waterco enables us to satisfy their high expectations.”
Water-based treatments and exercise programs
For Beerwah Active Physio principal and physiotherapist Christine Bond, the new pool provides the best possible treatment outcomes for patients requiring rehabilitation through warm water therapy.
“The program pool will provide access to a warm water-based treatment and exercise programs supervised by a physiotherapist,” she explains.
“It’s a weightless, warm environment for people with numerous conditions to exercise safely and freely with less impact on the body and joints.
“These facilities are especially beneficial for the elderly and people with a disability and we are really excited about the benefits this upgrade will provide.”
