Splash pads are the most requested piece of equipment for parks in North America. Understanding how they work, the value of a once-through system vs. circulated, and operational and design options are the focus of this session.
Scott Bowron developed and teaches a course on splash pads in Ontario, Canada. He was a recreation facility manager for a Canadian Municipality and has been a CPO Instructor for more than 15 years. Splash pads now have a separate portion of the Ontario Public Pool Regulations. Understanding the regs, as well as ideas for best operation and understanding the water chemistry, are all part of the course. Scott is President of Clear Aquatics in Canada, specializing in CPO training, sales of filtration, and advanced water chemistry.
