Setting: Luxury pool and spa in new mixed-use London development

Luxuriously appointed and located in the London borough of Lambeth, The Corniche provides residents with panoramic views over the city's sprawling skyline. The three mixed-use towers are part of the regeneration of Nine Elms, a 195-hectare development between Lambeth and Chelsea bridges comprising of 16,000 new homes - the largest urban initiative of its kind in Europe. Designed by internationally acclaimed architectural practice Foster & Partners, The Corniche includes extensive residents' facilities such as an indoor heated swimming pool and vitality spa built by Aqua Platinum Projects, sauna and steam room.

Fully tiled with glass mosaics, the 15m x 4m lap pool holds 83m³ of water volume while the separate vitality spa, which measures 5.5m x 3.5m, holds 22m³ of water. The latter features numerous spa jets, stainless steel massage beds, a water volcano, and a dedicated air station.

Challenge: Maintaining sparkling pool and spa water for residents

A well-maintained, properly operating pool filtration and re-circulation system is the first barrier in combating contaminants large enough to be filtered. This is especially important with high bather loads in buildings housing large numbers of residents such as The Corniche.

Being a prestigious development located on the Thames, the pool and spa's filtration equipment had to be of the highest quality and durable enough to withstand constant use and contact with chemicals. With residents paying a premium to live in luxury, and the reputation of Aqua Platinum Projects on the line, it was critical that the system was reliable and durable.

Solution: Waterco's high-performance pool and spa filtration equipment

Knowing that the globally renowned water filtration specialists at Waterco had been manufacturing and supplying equipment for over 30 years - all over the world and in many different applications - meant that the team at Aqua Platinum Projects had full confidence in both the supply, quality of the product, and after-sales service.

"The heart of any swimming pool is the filtration and we insist on the best as that is what our clients expect," says Aqua Platinum Projects managing director, Ryan Fonda. "That's why we only use Waterco filtration and pumps."
