25m Outdoor Pool: 2x CS145-GEN2
Kids Splash Area: CS95-GEN2
Four EvoHeat heat pumps were installed to maintain consistent water temperatures in three pools at the Griffith University Aquatic and Fitness Centre.
The Griffith University Aquatic and Fitness Centre replaced their inefficient heat pumps with four EvoHeat heat pumps in 316 stainless steel. Their old units were regularly breaking down which caused unstable pool water temperatures and high operating costs for the following bodies of water:
The indoor pool was fitted with a EvoHeat CS57 unit to maintain a toasty 32.5 degrees Celsius for the toddlers and babies attending the learn-to swim school. The outdoor 25m pool has two CS145-GEN2 units to maintain a 28 degree Celsius water temperature for the swim squad and regular patrons and the kids splash area has a CS95-GEN2 unit installed to maintain a comfortable 27 degrees Celsius for young children to be able to play happily.
Large savings will be achieved by upgrading to EvoHeat’s high energy efficient heat pumps. Based on electrical energy rates of 24c kWh, if you compare the estimated operating costs of the replaced heaters, when brand new, to EvoHeat’s modernised technology for all three bodies of water combined, Griffith University Aquatic and Fitness Centre stand to save almost 10k annually. That’s over $145,000 over 15-years.
In addition to improved energy efficiencies gained by upgrading to EvoHeat’s modernised technology, plumbing modifications to improve energy efficiencies were made to the filtration systems for both the kids splash area and indoor learn to swim pool. The heat pumps were connected in-line with the filtration system which resulted in the removal of the side stream water pumps previously dedicated for the heat pumps. The result was minimal impact on system head pressure and a reduction of operating costs of approximately $3,150 annually or almost $50,000 savings over the next 15-years.
