Glacier Pool Coolers Supplies Pool Chiller for Olympic Games

Phoenix – The eagerly anticipated Summer Olympics is slated to kick off on July 23 in Japan, drawing thousands of elite athletes from across the globe to showcase their prowess in various sports. Among the preparations for the event, attention has turned to the swimming competitions, where an Arizona-based company, Glacier Pool Coolers, has been selected by the U.S. team to provide their pool chilling solution for the scorching hot games.

The GPC280 Model Series Pool Cooling System by Glacier Pool Coolers has been installed at the U.S. National Team’s 50-meter private pool facility, serving as the training ground for Team USA’s Olympic and Paralympic swimmers between their events.

In climates like Japan's, characterized by high temperatures and humidity, maintaining an optimal water temperature is crucial for peak athletic performance. Warm water not only hampers swimmers with excess sweating but also poses challenges in training. With the help of Glacier Pool Coolers’ pool chiller, the water temperature at the training facility has been successfully lowered from 86 degrees Fahrenheit to a comfortable 77 degrees Fahrenheit.

Rick Argovitz, the president of Glacier Pool Coolers, emphasized the significance of providing relief from the intense heat for U.S. Olympians. He stated, “Our GPC280 Model Series Pool Cooling System will offer swimmers a reprieve from the heat and create an ideal training environment in the water.”

Traditionally, heat pump chillers have been used to regulate water temperature, albeit at significant operational costs and energy consumption. In contrast, the GPC280 Model Series Pool Cooling System utilizes an electric fan instead of Freon, heat exchange, or gas, thereby reducing both running costs and environmental impact. This innovation aligns with the U.S. Olympic Committee's goal to minimize expenses associated with running and maintaining the pool during the event.

Glacier Pool Coolers, originally founded in Texas, boasts a rich history of developing cooling solutions for various applications, stemming from rigorous testing conducted in diverse climates, including the sweltering summers of Houston. Since its inception in 2004, the company has expanded its reach globally, catering to the cooling needs of pools, fish hatcheries, sea life exhibits, hydro farms, and stacked lakes. Now headquartered in Scottsdale, Glacier Pool Coolers continues to serve clients in the Valley and beyond with its cutting-edge pool-cooling technology.
