“The project required several sturdy pumps specifically designed for large pools, waterfalls and other water attractions that demand high flow rates and continuous operation,” said Panama Pools Project Manager Rob Pursley, who has been in the pool construction business over 20 years.
The project at hand was the construction of a 650-foot lazy river that encircled a zero-depth lagoon pool, a heated pool, a waterfall and two spas at Destin West Bayside Resort on Okaloosa Island. The attraction would be located between two condominium buildings and connected to the buildings by two footbridges. The job required 13 high capacity, efficient and streamlines pool pumps to complete the large-scale water attraction project. “For a project of this size, the EQ Series offered us the best price and moved more water more quickly than comparable pumps, which offered tremendous energy savings,” Pursely noted.
