Go Green: Save Green. Make Green!
Smart properties are attracting new business and at the same time saving significantly on expenses by going green.
Solutions from VivoAquatics can save your facility money and help you to achieve your sustainability goals.
The need to create sustainable solutions is large and growing. Each year, it takes all the energy produced by 20 medium-sized power plants just to fuel America’s in-ground swimming pools!
Water scarcity is increasing on every continent. Around the world, demand for fresh water is exceeding population growth by a factor of two. And yet unnecessary backwashing and poor aquatic water management are costing the loss of millions of gallons of water and profits.
There is no one strategy that provides all the answers. That’s why we approach environmental responsibility by considering the full impact of our offerings, from development through disposal.
VivoAquatic’s focus is not just about reducing water and energy costs, but rather about doing the work necessary to understand how we can build solutions that provide our clients with sustainable longer term solutions.
These solutions save energy, conserve water, reduce chemicals and otherwise contribute to a more environmentally responsible aquatic system.
