This year Chris Carr FISPE celebrated 39 years (1979 – 2018) of being in the Pool Industry. Chris is a qualified mechanical Engineer who has specialized in the field of system hydraulics and water filtration. Many people in the Industry will remember Chris for being the Technical Director of Lacron Ltd (now Waterco) the UK’s most favoured brand of Swimming Pool filters. Chris was the designer of all Lacron’s larger commercial filters and has considerable experience in both manufacturing techniques as well as commercial filter installations.
Chris is also the current Company Secretary for the Institute of Swimming Pool Engineers having been President between 2002 – 2005 and has served more than 20 years on the council. Chris also presents the very successful – ‘hands on’ ‘ISPE – Filtration Workshop’ which has been a regular and well attended event for the Institute over the last Decade. Recently, Chris has welcomed the assistance of Philip Barlow MISPE who has been an excellent addition to the ISPE Filtration Workshop with his wealth of knowledge and ‘hands on’ practical experience.
Currently Chris runs his own consultancy company called CC Filtration Services and is more than happy to discuss any projects you might like his assistance with. Chris will be again assisting Ross on the ISPE stand as well as introducing many of the guest speakers in the SPATEX Training Arena during the show. Chris warmly invites both ISPE members and non-members to drop by the ISPE stand and say hello and review the wealth of information available.
