Crystal Lagoons San Alfonso Del Mar Lagoon To Host Swimming Competition10 January, 2020 / News
San Alfonso del Mar, Crystal Lagoons® monumental water amenity located off the coast of central Chile, in the Valparaíso Region, will host a swimming competition on January 25th. Once awarded the Guinness World Record for largest crystalline water body, it’s proportions have consistently attracted media attention due to its size but also state-of-the-art technology.
Totaling 20-acres of crystalline waters, stretching over a kilometer in length, the crystalline lagoon uses sustainable technology, created by the firm’s founder, Fernando Fischmann, a biochemist by profession, turned real-estate developer.
Crystal Lagoons pioneering technology allows for any type of water to be used: salt, fresh or brackish water, based on their availability, while fully complying with the most stringent international physicochemical and microbiological water quality standards. It enables low water consumption, using up to 30 times less water than a golf course and 50% less water than is required by a park of the same size. The lagoons only consume 2% of the energy needed by conventional swimming pool filtration systems.
The firm’s patented solution consists of applying controlled pulses of small amounts of oxidants / microbicides in the water of the lagoons, in very specific patterns that are determined by their own algorithms. This way, it is not necessary to maintain a high and permanent level of disinfection in the water.
Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size clear water lagoons at very low costs.
