Aliaxis becomes permanent reference for temporary swimming pools

Category: Project, Date: 14 May 2017

After equipping all 18 swimming facilities in the Rio Olympic village, Aliaxis’ Italian business FIP was also selected by our client Myrtha Pools to equip three temporary pools for the FINA World Swimming Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

The Championships took place in April 2017 in the City Park of Budapest. To compensate for the poor availability of training facilities before the big event, the organising team asked to have three temporary pools installed at two different locations in the early months of the year. The pools needed to be dismantled and reinstalled for the main swimming competition, just a few metres away from the UNESCO world heritage site, Heroes Square in Budapest’s City Park. Furthermore, the pools did not have the same dimensions for warm-up as for the official competition.

It goes without saying that all equipment for the pools needed to be easy to install, dismantle and reinstall without losing quality. Having proved their high technology and reliability at the Rio Olympic Games, our Italian FIP team was again selected to provide valves for the pools. FIP supplied high-reliability ball, butterfly, retaining, sediment strainer valves and PVC-U fittings.
