DeBrett’s Water Park Taupo


Products used:

DeBrett’s water park in Taupo had a problem with their wet play surfacing – it was leaching into the water and turning it a horrible colour. Not a good look for a business that relies on its clean water image to attract customers.

“We have a zero depth water playground and we had a real problem with our prior matting being affected by the chlorine. The matting was leaching into the pool and making the water turn a horrible colour. It was a really unsatisfactory situation we were facing.”

Fortunately for the team at DeBrett’s, they found the solution to their problem in the form of Numat’s Pour’n’Play surfacing. Not only is Pour’n’Play a great option for dry playground surfacing, it’s also perfect for wet play areas too. This is because it uses Rosehill TPV® rubber which offers the highest level of water and chlorine resistance available.

With a short time-frame in mind, the team at DeBrett’s were impressed with Numat’s timeliness, expertise, and competitiveness when it came to price. “Luckily we discovered Numat. The company was extremely competitive on pricing, very professional and made the whole job a seamless experience. The team really did their homework on their products to make sure it was going to be suitable for our purpose. We had a very short time frame to get the installation completed and Numat did this with minimal impact on our business.”

The result couldn’t have been better for DeBrett’s, “It was an immediate, positive impact the new matting made to our business. The pools have been crystal clear. After such a good experience, I have no hesitation recommending Numat to others.”

"Luckily we discovered Numat!"
