The TEC4000 offers a full colour touch screen, with swipe menu navigation, wi-fi communication and on-screen & download data-logging, together with energy saving variable speed drive control, PAC pump output & agitator timer control. Together with an all new flow cell, housing an advanced platinum/platinum self cleaning free chlorine sensor, the TEC4000 provides increased chlorine measuring and control resolution.

Work has completed at the NHS hospital, "on time and on budget".

Two new Waterco SMDD filters, with 5-valve face pipework have been fitted, filled with a pea gravel base and 16/30 grade silica sand.

Access for the filters was very tight, but manageable, using a chain block from the overhead lifting beam to lower the filters into the basement plant room.

After that the pipework and valving was a straight forward installation project for our engineers, completing the works to the pre-agreed programme.

Now you see it…..

Work is progressing at a south coast NHS hospital on the replacement of the older steel filter, with new filters and five valve face pipework, for their hydrotherapy pool.

Being located in the underbelly of the hospital, the filter couldn’t be removed without cutting it up into small sections. Taking five days, the media was emptied into a skip, then the filter cut up into sections and removed.

Just to complicate the new build, there is no access for a single filter of a similar size to replace it. Therefore, smaller diameter filters are to be fitted, which have already been lowered into the plantroom from an access gantry above, with about 25mm clearance on each side.

The total contract build schedule is two weeks, from draining the old filter through to rebuild completion and recommissioning.

 

More to follow as the works progress.

When one of the busiest swimming pools in North Kent floods into its own plant room, at the start of the Christmas holidays, the Local Authority needs to rely on their contractors to get to everything repaired, dried out, cleaned up and the pool back open again without delay.

And so when a balance tank float valve failed last week, Topline became a major link in a chain, working with the Local Authorities leisure operator and their M&E contractor, and took just two working days to replace the failed 10” balance tank float valve and isolation valve, ensuring the works were carried out quickly, safely and included all the necessary supporting H&S RAMS.

Using commercial divers to plug off the sumps, our service engineers drained the balance tank and remove the failed valves, while the back office sourced replacement valves. The engineers returned to replace the valves and reinstall the pipework. A positive outcome to a serious breakdown.

This is the service that Topline offer to all our customers. If a pool is out of use it is losing money, disappointing customers and putting the owners business at risk. Topline understand these fundamentals, and work to ensure that problems are fully resolved and pools are back up and running in the event of an unforeseen failure.
