About Us

From a small startup company in 1989, we have gone from strength to strength and now have AHC’s at over 50 swimming pools around New Zealand. We are a leader in our field and currently have service agents based in Auckland, Wellington & Christchurch.

Our Story

Aquacare Water Treatments was formed in 1989 when director Rex Page retired from running Christchurch City Council’s Centennial Pool after 30 years service.

Initially manufacturing and delivering hypo by truck to CCC pools only, as demand for non-dangerous chlorine increased, so did our number of customers.

Demand also increased from outside our viable delivery range, so the need for on-site generation became apparent. Our first generators were installed in the South Island where they could be maintained easily. By ongoing fault analysis various improvements were made to the AHC’s and they have evolved into what they are today. As the reliability of the AHC’s improved so did our confidence to install them further away from our Christchurch base.

Cheap copies of our 1994 model are currently available from other suppliers, but we’ve learnt a lot since then!

In 2007 the AHC side of Aquacare Water Treatments had become big enough to sustain itself and Aquacare AHC Ltd was formed. Since then we have gone from strength to strength and now have AHC’s at over 65 swimming pools from Gore in the South to Auckland in the North. We also supply Aquacare Water Treatments with their AHC’s for their 60+ sites.

We currently have service agents based in Auckland, Wellington & Christchurch and have developed into a leader in the design, manufacture, supply and installation of 1% Electrolytic Sodium Hypochlorite Generators in New Zealand.
