- Q: How is the water treated at Cowabunga Bay? A: All water used in our attractions (nearly 1 million gallons) is processed through several filtration systems including Ultra Violet technology. We monitor each filtration system both electronically and manually with state of the art equipment to assure uniform high-quality water standards.
- Q: More about the water quality expertise and quality standards. A: All Cowabunga Bay’s management is certified by the National Swimming Pool Foundation (NSPF) and National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA) as Certified Pool Operators. These premier organizations have set standards for technical training and testing in the pool and spa industry. We test water quality manually every hour to back up a computerized monitoring system. Our system records water quality at all pools 24 hours a day and automatically dispenses chemicals, if needed, to meet stringent quality control standards. Our filtration systems are among the most advanced available. In fact, the filtration system “turns over” and delivers freshly filtered water to each attraction every 30 minutes, twice as fast as the Health code requires.
