The Robson & Lindley Aquatics Center features a 50-meter pool with eight lanes and a 10-meter diving platform; the center opened in November 2017. The large surface area and deep water also called for a powerful circulation system, so Bevard turned to Pentair’s Aurora line of commercial pumps as the basis of design. Specifically, it’s two 40-horsepower, fusion-bonded epoxy-coated cast-iron recirculation pumps and a smaller 2-horse drain-down and agitation pump.
