Crystal Lagoons® is a U.S., Miami-based company that has developed a pioneering, innovative, and sustainable technology that has been patented worldwide in over 190 countries. This technology, created by the firm’s founder, Fernando Fischmann, allows crystalline lagoons of unlimited sizes to be built and maintained at very low costs anywhere in the world, using a minimum amount of additives and energy. This allows people to enjoy beach life, year-round, even in large, landlocked cities.
There are currently more than 50 million man-made water bodies around the world, such as artificial lakes, lagoons on golf courses, reservoirs, among others. None of them have the transparency of tropical seas reminiscent of the Caribbean. On the contrary, their water looks murky with a dark green color, because of the algae proliferation and the accumulation of sediment in the bottom.
For years, different water treatment technologies have been applied in large bodies of water, with the objective of achieving good quality, such as the use of ozone, aeration and movement of water, enzymes, biological equilibrium and fish, among others. However, none of these methods have managed to create large bodies of crystalline water with high transparency and microbiological quality.
For this reason, Fernando Fischmann, biochemist by profession, created a sustainable technology method and system that allowed him to build and maintain large crystalline lagoons with excellent water quality at very low costs. In fact, the most important advantages offered by Crystal Lagoons technology are its low construction and maintenance costs, the use of any type of water source and its low water consumption, converting it into the World’s Top Amenity™, and has improved millions of people’s lives around the world.
The results of this efficient system based on pulses of disinfection allows to use up to 100 times less chemicals compared to conventional swimming pools and drinking water treatments, reducing the excessive costs of additives and their consequent damage to the environment.
Telemetric Monitoring and Operation
The application of additives is determined electronically by injectors and sensors strategically located in the lagoon. This operation is managed online by the Crystal Lagoons Control Center, so that the presence of qualified personnel for the application of the additives and the monitoring of the water quality of the lagoon is not necessary.
It also ensures efficient filtration system consumes only 2% of the energy compared to conventional swimming pool filtration systems. In addition, as the Crystal Lagoons filtered volume is up to 300 times lower than in conventional systems, the complete filtration system is smaller, allowing the space required for the installation of pumps and filters to be reduced.
All lagoons that use Crystal Lagoons technology around the world are monitored, controlled, and operated online from the Crystal Lagoons Control Center (CLCC) 24/7.
