Myrtha Pools end 2019 in Vegas with ISL Grand Final
The International Swimming League Grand Final in Las Vegas was our last big challenge of 2019. Transparency was the slogan of the temporary Myrtha pool being installed for the final stage of the 2019 ISL events. For the first time in history of sport, a swimming pool for an international competition featured a 21m acrylic wall: to boast not only the clear water but also the swimmers that were the center of the show.
Two new short course world records were set in this iconic pool (Caeleb Dressel in the men’s 50m breaststroke and Daiya Seto in the men’s 400 individual medley) and Energy Standard club – thanks to Chad Le Clos, Sarah Sjostrom and Florent Manadou – won the first ISL title.
In addition to the show, Myrtha also thought of the environmental aspects, as the skid mounted Defender filtration system provided the best possible water quality and reduced water loss. Not only does Myrtha promote sustainability by being eco-friendly; emitting less than 50% of CO2 emissions than a traditional concrete pool, but in this case the pools are being reused and will be recycled. The build of this temporary pool is extraordinary as it was used for two previous temporary events, and after the ISL Finals, will be installed permanently in another location.
Staying on the topic of being environmentally friendly, the pool featured the innovative Myrtha Pools STZ inlet system. A system that contributes to the reduced use of chlorine and pool chemicals, due to great water circulation. A result that makes both Myrtha Pools and ISL proud and that have saved the thirsty city of Las Vegas many gallons of the precious “blue gold”.
