This interactive panel discussion will take an in-depth look at available systems in today’s waterparks. Technological advances have led to the ability to fully automate many critical elements in a mechanical room. These include but are not limited to water quality and chemicals, flow rate and pumps, filtration and integration into building or site-wide energy modelling systems. These systems are billed as saving both operating and staff costs but have been implanted with varying levels of success. Our panelists will discuss their experience with the pros and cons of these systems as well as making recommendations based upon their specific experience.
