Sheraton Mirage Saves Thousands of Dollars in Water Charges After Leak Inspection
Sheraton Mirage on the Gold Coast reported their large lagoon swimming pool was leaking.
Approximately 25000l per day was being added to keep the pool in operation.
After extensive structure testing and pressure testing of all lines, a large leak was located inside the “ballast pipes” between the kid’s pool and the large resort pool. Due to the difficult location of the leak it was repaired using internal sleeving / relining of pipeline.
All this work was able to be conducted with minimal disruption to resort guests and no closure of the pool areas.
After great success with the resort pool Sheraton Mirage also employed Australian Leak Detection to locate the cause of sudden rapid water loss to their main pond /water features. We were able to determine the water loss was occurring through the structure or body of the ponds and not the water features or pipe lines. This allowed us to concentrate on the structures of the ponds and not waste time and money testing the extensive pipe work and filtration systems. The leaks were discovered to be from rapid movement of some of the expansion joints, with a combination of smaller leaks on other sections of the expansion joints.
“Thanks to Australian Leak Detection, we were able to save thousands of dollars in excess water charges and hundreds of thousands of litres going to waste,” hotel management said.
