MIOX Technology Retained to Manage Water Quality at Radisson Hotel Albuquerque Water Park

SmartStart lease program includes mixed oxidant onsite generation system

MIOX Corp., a provider of safe water disinfection, announced it has been awarded the service contract to provide aquatic sanitation for the new water park opening at the Radisson Hotel Albuquerque, N.M. The contract will include managing water quality and cleanliness for the Radisson’s five water features, including a 63,895-gal river and slide plunge pool; 32,235-gal activity pool; 12,577-gal wading pool; 8,690-gal spa; and a 57,230-gal FlowRider.

The MIOX SmartStart lease program includes a mixed oxidant onsite generation system, training, remote monitoring and onsite preventive maintenance services. MIOX Corp. said the mixed oxidant technology in use at the Radisson Albuquerque offers better control to prevent recreational water illnesses, ensure removal of biofouling that may exist in distribution pipelines, reduce formation of chlorinated by-products and create a better swim experience through elimination of eye and skin irritation.

“By partnering with MIOX, we have found a highly effective water sanitation technology that ensures the safest and most enjoyable environment possible for guests and employees,” said Jim Metzger, general manager of the Radisson. “With the SmartStart program, we have the peace of mind of knowing MIOX’s job is to keep our solution tank full, while also ensuring peak performance from the MIOX system. We were able to achieve the best of both worlds: the performance and cost reductions of on-site generation and the reliability and availability that comes from traditional, delivered chemical models. We’re delighted with this arrangement.”

MIOX’s clean technologies treat water using salt, water and electricity to generate a dilute sanitizer on site.
