Crystal Lagoons speaks about growth plans in Australia10 February, 2017 / News
Crystal Lagoons Regional Director, German Rocca, to talk about the role of water lagoons in the future of property development.
Crystal Lagoons allows for the construction and maintenance of crystal-clear lagoons of unlimited size at a low costs. The firm completed their first lagoon in a development called San Alfonso del Mar, Chile. The developer was also the founder of Crystal Lagoons. He wanted to create the idyllic beach lifestyle next to a Chilean coastline which had dangerous currents, unfit for swimming.
He took this salt water and placed it inside a lagoon. After many attempts, he finally found the formula which from night to day turned murky waters into a tropical turquoise colour. The value of the development sky-rocketed.
What about sustainability?
Rocca’s team says that “…having received many awards for sustainability, Crystal Lagoons provides an eco-friendly solution in the form of a top quality amenity…”
Their technology uses only 2% of the energy consumed by the average water filtration system while using 100 times less chemicals. It uses 1/2 of the water used by a park and 30times less water than a golf course. In the long run, this creates minimal maintenance costs.
Role in Australia
Rocca says the technology provides a solution to many problems we face in some of our Australian coasts (such as jellyfish, crocs, sharks, etc.). Also, inland developments can now create the so-desired beach lifestyle. Crystal Lagoons is able to turn any water source (salt, brackish, well…) and turn it into a crystal-clear oasis.
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 crystal clear lagoons at very low costs.
