Lakeside camp site looks to the future with the Rada Service Team
All camp site showering facilities need to be robust enough to stand up to any use, but Glanllyn Lakeside Caravan and Camping Park’s shower block needs to be tougher than most.
Situated on the edge of Lake Bala in the picturesque Snowdonia National Park, the site is popular with sailors and watersports enthusiasts who use the showers as often as three times per day.
To cope with such heavy use, Glallyn owners, the Pugh Family, specified a range of Rada products, including Rada Sense digital showers and Rada 215 T3 concealed thermostatic mixing valves, for the park’s four shower blocks.
While the products were selected for their robustness, the park’s management turned to Rada as the experts in commercial showering and washroom controls and the manufacturers of the product to oversee the regular maintenance of the systems.
Rada’s team visit the site on an annual basis to undertake routine maintenance, ensuring work can be completed in low season to keep disruptions to a minimum, as well as offering repairs and replacement parts when needed.
With the site hosting as many as 1,000 guests in the summer, Glanllyn’s owners have taken the step to ensure that the park’s shower blocks are fed in an economical and environmentally friendly way – in keeping with the beautiful surrounding area.
Glanllyn now boasts a unique biomass heating system located on site, which burns wood chips to provide year round heat. Rada’s systems, which were first used with the site’s old gas fed system, have made the transition to the modern heat source seamless – with the Service Team playing a key role in the system’s commissioning and ongoing performance.
