What-We-Do-Main2

Bad air quality may not be your fault, but it could still be your problem. It’s a problem that costs time, effort, resources, and a whole lot of money to fight–and the fight is futile.

So what exactly do we do?  We:

  • Evaluate facilities, looking for and identifying design flaws and other reasons for IAQ problems,
  • Assist Engineers and designers who are committed to fixing those problems, and
  • Design and manufacture custom Evacuator® systems to eliminate the problems, at their source.

Why-We-Do-It-Main

Ask yourself: Have you ever spent more than an hour in an indoor pool… and enjoyed it?

The Paddock Evacuator Company was created in 2009 to address a growing concern in the pool industry: indoor air quality. Just like you, we have lived through the pain of having bad, unhealthy air.

  • As former owners and operators of indoor pools, we were blamed for bad air quality.  Despite doing all we could, the problems persisted. We spent money on things that did not work, and corrosion continued to get worse.  Air quality problems were stressful, costly, and very frustrating.
  • As industry professionals and pool builders, we were blamed for designing and building pools that had bad air.  The appearance and longevity of the facility and its equipment was our responsibility. When air quality became a problem, our reputations were questioned and it was embarrassing.  Bad air may not have been our fault, but it certainly became our problem.
  • As parents, coaches, and lifeguards, we had no choice but to accept bad air quality as the norm.  Despite the obvious health risks (like asthma and bronchitis), we still put ourselves and our kids through it.
  • As swimmers, when we could not perform at our best because of breathing difficulty, it was heartbreaking–especially after putting in a full season of hard work to be there.  Some of us never reached our full potential because we were held back by breathing problems.  It was incredibly disappointing.

We have lived it.  We have been there.  We understand.  That’s why we do it.

New Pools

The initial stages of planning new construction of an indoor aquatic facility is the perfect time to include a Paddock Evacuator System in your conversation.

Existing Pools

Helping existing pools is the heart of our business.  Everything we do is aimed at reaching one result above all: the best air quality possible for our customers.  That being said, the shape, size, and cost of The Evacuator completely depends on a facility’s needs.  While everything we do is custom-fit, we have to work with what is there.  That challenge is part of the reason why we love what we do.  It motivates us to continue to improve our technology.

There are tens of thousands of indoor pools in the United States, alone.  So far, we have not found any that are identical.  Each project is unique, so we give them the individual attention they deserve.  If you want your pool to be evaluated, just ask us.
