WATER MANAGEMENT is about making water work for the specific needs of your aquatic play design and its surrounding infrastructure. Knowing what will happen with your water is a vital component of a successful aquatic play project.

To get you started, we've put together the top five things you should consider when choosing a Water Management system for your space. 


Before you choose, answer these FIVE questions:

 What is the quality of my water?

 What type of water & electrical service do I have?

› What are the health codes for my area?

› Where will my WMS be located?

 What type of maintenance is required? How often?

The brains of the operation, controllers command the water, telling it what to do and when to do it. They work in conjunction with the Activator and Control Center to control the sequencing of water to each of the play features and open and close the water source in accordance with the splash pad's operating hours.

Waterplay offers a variety of solutions to suit the needs of your project from the simplified Basic Controller to the advanced, feature-rich smartPLAY™ Controller which utilizes Waterplay's smartACCESS™ remote technology.
