Title

Consider Approval Of The Purchase Of Sand Filters From Sunbelt Pools Through An Inter-Local Agreement With BuyBoard In An Amount Not To Exceed $194,547.10.

 

Body

BACKGROUND:

The Thomas Splash Park currently has two sand filters that service the 4,000 gallon splash pad.  The average life cycle for sand filters is 15-20 years.  The existing sand filters are over 20 years old and have been exposed to the elements.  We will be replacing the two sand filters with one sand filter which will allow staff to more efficiently backwash while still maintaining the appropriate turnover rate. 

 

The Rosemeade Rainforest Activity Pool has a sand filter that services the 81,740 gallon zero-entry pool.  After the facility closed this fall, a crack was discovered in the filter that does not allow it to properly pressurize and function. The existing filter will be replaced with a more efficient model. 

 

This project includes the cost for the sand filters and installation.  A 10% contingency has been included in the budget.

 

FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS:

Sunbelt Pools is a reputable company that provides a quality product and has completed projects for the City of Carrollton in the past.  The sand filter replacement and installation will be funded out of the following account:

 

ACCTG UNIT                      ACCOUNT                     BUDGET AMOUNT

854360                     Sand Filters                     $194,547.10

 

IMPACT ON COMMUNITY SUSTAINABILITY:

This project supports and aligns with Council goals and objectives through the fiduciary care and maintenance of our infrastructure.

 

STAFF RECOMMENDATION/ACTION DESIRED:

Staff recommends approval to replace the Thomas Splash Park and Rosemeade Rainforest activity pool sand filters from Sunbelt Pools in an amount not to exceed $194,547.10 using the City’s existing agreement with BuyBoard.
