Baywave Features & Facilities:

Operating Hours of Hydroslide and Waves

  • Hydroslide operates weekends, public holidays and school holidays between 10.15am and 5pm (runs for approx. 40 mins every hour). Also operates between 4pm and 6pm Monday to Friday during the school term.
  • Waves operates weekends, public holidays and school holidays between 11am and 5pm (run on the hour for approx. 10mins).

Ultra Violet Disinfection system. 

Our Learn to Swim pool at Baywave now uses an Ultra Violet Disinfection system which provides the following benefits:
  • Ultra violet filtration allows us to reduce the required amount of chlorine used in the pool by up to 50%, significantly increasing bather comfort.
  • It improves the clarity of the pool up to an additional 40%
  • It eliminates the “chlorine smell” by destroying chloramines which create the “smell” in the atmosphere.
  • Because it kills up to 99% of bacteria, the need for chlorine is almost non existent, allowing us to run at such low levels.
