Proteus®, the technology of a great swimming-pool. From all aspects. Proteus® represents a real revolution on the swimming-pool market, with unparalleled technical solutions and standards of finish. Between reinforced concrete and traditional prefabs, Proteus® technology has opened up a third path, which offers the project freedom advantages of concrete together with the building speed associated with prefabs.
Proteus Pools therefore commissioned ACOR Consultants (www.acor.com.au), a renowned Australian engineering company, to compare the energy used in building a Proteus pool versus a traditional concrete tank. Such quantity of energy is expressed as the “Carbon footprint”, that is the quantity of CO2 which corresponds to the energy necessary for the production of the materials used.
During the last 15 years a development process has begun in the swimming pool sector, bringing this market to a strong growth not only as far as the swimming pool equipment are concerned, but above all in the private swimming pools. The philosophy about the purchase of a swimming pool by private people has completely changed: swimming pool does not mean luxury and exclusivity any more but physical well-being and relaxation for all the family.
