Waterco provides commercial filters for FINA-certified pool
"Installing Waterco’s commercial filters provide enormous peace of mind,
they’re not only durable, reliable and efficient
but are easy to maintain for facility managers."
says Gerrie Baldwin from Baldwin Aquatic.
To qualify as a FINA (Federation Internationale de Natation) certified swimming pool, it must provide the best possible environment for competitive use and training. Stringent regulations have to be met, and impeccable standards must be maintained.
For Queensland’s prestigious Sunshine Coast Grammar (SCG), constructing a 50m FINA-compliant pool would create a world-class aquatic centre for students and a facility fit for international sportspeople. Combine that with a new learn-to-swim indoor pool and you have the perfect combination to create a pathway from junior swimmer to professional athlete.

To satisfy global guidelines and be eligible to host aquatic meets, the short course competition pool was required to maintain impeccable water quality year-round – especially with high bather loads.
“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 swimming pool construction, filtration & maintenance, the family-owned company is the preferred choice for reputable institutions including St Andrew’s Anglican College, Bond University and the University of the Sunshine Coast.
