Otterbine High Volume in Karrinyup

Otterbine 5HP and 1HP High volume Industrial Aerators, Lake Karrinyup Country Club


Karrinyup Country Club - Otterbine High Volume Aerators
In early 2016, Clearpond was approached by Total Eden to supply another Otterbine 1HP High volume industrial aerator for Lake Karrinyup Country Club.

Lake Karrinyup Country Club is a long term Otterbine supporter; having a total of 8 units currently in service. 2 x 5 HP High volume industrial aerator and 5 x 1HP High volume industrial aerator and 1 x ½ HP fractional unit.

A new aerator was required, as they were hosting The Perth International golfing event held from 25th to the 28th February 2016 which is marked as Australia’s richest tournament and a new feature for the event was required.

Discussing with Nigel Fitzpatrick, the Irrigation Technician, why they chose Otterbine, he said it is because ‘they are extremely happy with the Otterbine units, due to their longevity, reliability and reliance’. Lake Karrinyup has had some units for over 8 years without problems & they have replaced other units over to Otterbine due to the reliability.

Reliability and performance are very important from them, as the stakeholders want the course to be looking and playing its best at all times. The High volume units not only assist in the aesthetics and sounds of the course, but also being used in the irrigation lake aerating them to stop the irrigation lines blocking and thus increasing the reliability of the irrigations lines and reducing the maintenance on the systems.
