ScumGutter to WetDeck

Water World

Design Brief

Tea Tree Gully Council own and operate Waterworld, one of South Australia's largest outdoor swimming centres.  Decades old, Waterworld was in need of a makeover.  Attendances had been falling over many years and the cost of maintenance was increasing.

State Wide Pool Services won the contract for a major refurbishment which included:

  • Installation of a new disabled access ramp and wet deck gutters to the existing 50-metre pool

  • New wet deck gutters to the existing 25-metre pool

  • A new splash deck with a range of water toys

  • Waterslide runouts

Of course, these refurbished and new pools needed new tiling, stainless steel fittings, plant, hydraulics and balance tanks.

The Result

The result is a state-of-the-art outdoor swimming centre which could easily be mistaken for a brand new facility.

Quality materials and equipment will result in minimal maintenance and this, combined with huge increases in attendance rates has turned around the financial performance of the centre.
