Neptune-Benson Defender® Filters Selected for Wet'n'Wild Sydney in Australia

Coventry, Rhode Island (April 16, 2013) - Neptune-Benson, a leading manufacturer of commercial pool filtration systems, announced today that its award-winning Defender® regenerative media filters have been selected for Wet'n'Wild Sydney. Wet'n'Wild Sydney has set its sights on becoming "the world's best water park." And the world's best water park demands the world's best water filters.

Billed as "the world's best water park", Wet'n'Wild Sydney will be home to a total of 42 slides and attractions. Due to open in December of 2013, the water park will feature a massive beach and the latest in waterslide technology - from a giant "tornado" ride to the world's tallest looping tube complex and a double Sky Coaster.

With a variety of operational and environmental benefits, the Defender® UFF filter is a key component of Wet'n'Wild Sydney's environmental management strategy. Defender's ability to filter down to 1 micron helps to ensure the safety and enjoyment of the park's visitors as well.

Water efficiency was established as a top priority for Wet'n'Wild Sydney. The park will save more than 50 million litres of water a year by using rain water and recycled storm-water for 90% of the park's irrigation, wash-down and sanitation needs and by using Defender® filtration technology for all of the park's water attractions.

Selected for its ability to eliminate up to 90% of backwash water waste along with significant savings in chemical and energy consumption, the park's 20 Defender® filters are a key component of the park's environmental management plan. As the latest in Village Roadshow's family of world-class theme parks, Wet'n'Wild Sydney is the 5th Village Roadshow park to take advantage of Defender's advanced filtration technology.
