From water slides to lazy rivers to aquatic playgrounds to heated wave pools, aquatic centers and water parks need a reliable source of power. In the event of a power outage - even a temporary one - the results can mean loss of significant revenue. IBISWorld, the largest provider of industry information in the U.S. says, " A growing number of international tourists and increasing consumer spending have played a role in boosting the industry's growth since the recession. In the five years to 2018, revenue will continue to grow as consumer confidence improves further and as more water parks jump on the indoor/outdoor park trend to generate revenue year-round." As a 4.4 billion dollar-a-year industry, aquatic centers and water parks are highly dependent on ticket sales and the sale of food and beverages. An aquatic center or water park without a reliable source of power is a recipe for disaster.
Backup power generator sets are essential to the success of aquatic centers, water parks, and facilities as small as recreations centers with a basic indoor heated swimming pool. The loss of power means water pumps cannot function, water heaters will not work, and concessions stands cannot sell food or drinks. Diesel generators are an excellent backup or continuous power source that are used throughout the aquatics and water parks industry.
