All About Aquatics.png

Your skin is the biggest organ of the human body therefore one of the most important to look after. h2o Skin is dedicated to providing you with information and product solutions to look after your skin, wet or dry, after being immersed in pool water.

We live and die at a cellular level. Every aspect of our health begins with the condition of our cells. Cells that are damaged, stressed, and slow to recover diminish the body’s ability to maintain a healthy balance. Cells that protect and heal themselves quickly result in improved health.

Young, healthy cells make an abundance of special molecules that speed healing and enhance cell-to-cell communication. These molecules are called Redox Signaling molecules, and they are vital to keeping your body young and healthy. As we get older, our bodies’ ability to make these molecules decreases, resulting in what we call “aging.”

Since all disease can be linked to unhealthy cells, redox signaling molecules are therefore vital for your health, youthfulness and longevity.

As we age, and as stress and environmental toxins inundate our lives and weaken our defenses, normal cellular function declines, and with it, the body’s ability to produce and maintain a proper balance of redox signaling molecules.

What happens if there is a technology that can replenish these molecules?

A company called ASEA has developed the only technology that can create and stabilize active redox signaling molecules that are native to the body in a consumable form. This proprietary process suspends these life-giving molecules in a pristine solution—a first-of-its-kind, cutting-edge health breakthrough.

No matter what your health concern may be, ASEA Redox Supplement (RENU28) can bring your cellular communication to optimal levels, improving the health of every system of your body, starting right now.

Life Floor
Silver Trade Exhibitor│
Life Floor logo.png

We all know the importance of water safety. Not just in the water, but also around it.

And forever, kids have been slipping and falling on those slippery, hard or abrasive concrete or tile pool decks.

Now a new product has solved that problem.

Life Floor™ is an impervious foam rubber tile flooring system specifically designed and made for aquatics – where anyone is barefoot.

 

Life Floor has two main features:

  1. Traction: Life Floor is slip resistant without being abrasive, soft for bare feet, and becomes even more slip resistant when wet. It has a P5 to AS4586:2013 wet pendulum test.
  2. Cushioning: if someone does fall, the built-in cushioning will minimise bumps and bruises.

With 32 colour options, four textures, and three thicknesses, Life Floor can accommodate most needs for wet area where safety is #1.

Made in the USA, Life Floor has been specially designed for use around swimming pools, zero depth entries, change rooms, splash pads, water parks, slide towers and play areas.

Here’s what some facility managers say about Life Floor:

“Life Floor solved a great problem we were having with kids slipping. Since installing, we haven’t had any issues or complaints. We have been especially pleased with the tile’s colour fastness and durability”

“We have had our Life Floor on the pool deck for the past several years and are very happy with the results. We went from nearly daily slips and falls, to virtually none. Patrons love it, staff love it, and I would do it again in a minute.”

Further demonstrating its commitment to aquatic safety, Life Floor won the 2016 Kelly Ogle Memorial Safety Award from the World Waterpark Association.

With proven installations throughout the US and Middle East, Life Floor is now available in Australia from Sport + Venues Australia.

OCPMS

ocpms-web.jpg

For over a decade of being involved with swim schools in many positions, from teacher to coordinator, and using many different management systems from spreadsheets to commercial software, I have found that there was very little in the way of programs specialising in swim school at an affordable price. I found the software that I have used lacked the ability to track performance of teachers, clients, and the swim school as a whole.

From this background we have developed the Online Client Profile Management System to specifically cater to the needs of running a swim school. Our swim school program can be integrated with other systems and with other programs in the OCPMS range to deliver a full system embracing management, eLearning, phone apps and more.

We have a passion for technology and by using and embracing technology we can bring big gains in performance, staff training, time saving and ease of use.

I have found that technology is an enabling factor in modern swim teaching and running swim schools. The introduction of affordable technology into swim schools brings huge improvements for program quality, teacher satisfaction and client progress. With informative accumulated data, management is able introduce focused program improvements to cater to their clients needs.

Our goal is to cater for both swim schools and for teacher who have the passion for teaching and wanting to always improve. That is why we will be producing a range of flash cards, teaching resources. So if you are looking for something for an entire swim school or just for a teacher we would have something for you.

Brauer Industries

Brauer Industries, which was setup in 2004, is now Australia's leader in air and water purification, manufacturing Ozone-based technologies for both commercial and residential application. Brauer Industries has produced, patented and proven the effectiveness of their ozone technology across a large portfolio of products in many industries and are heavily invested in research and development to improve the standard of air and water treatment across the country making for a sustainable future.

Ozone Swim - Advanced Oxidation Disinfection Systems

Brauer Industries has developed a revolutionary line of Secondary AOP Disinfection Systems suitable for Learn to Swim, Hydrotherapy and Aquatic Centre Pools. These AOP systems combine the powers of both Ozone and UV technology to produce one of the most reactive oxidising agents known to chemistry.

Put simply, Ozone is produced using patented Corona Discharge technology and is introduced into the water via a unique injection manifold. Ozone enriched water then passes through TiO2 UV reactor chambers where it undergoes photolysis to produce Hydroxyl Free Radicals. Hydroxyl Free Radicals effectively destroy bacteria, fungi, viruses, cysts, chlorine by-products (chloramines) and chlorine resistant parasites such as Cryptosporidium.

AOP systems have low running and maintenance costs and can be pre-built and skid mounted on 316 stainless steel frames to enable fast and easy install.

AOP Benefits include:

Reduces Trihalomethanes (THMs);

Dramatically reduces Free Available Chlorine levels (FAC) to as low as 1ppm;

Dramatically reduces combined chlorine levels (Chloramines);

Reduces skin, eye and respiratory irritations;

Breaks down dissolved impurities such as oils and organic wastes;

Improves filtration of suspended solids such as human dander; and

Economical with minimal maintenance requirements.
