Evoqua’s Neptune-Benson Named Official Water Quality Sponsor of USA Swimming

Neptune-Benson to build on a legacy of providing sustainable, clean
water solutions for elite swimmers

Water Technologies Corp.
(NYSE: AQUA), an industry leader in
mission-critical water treatment solutions, today announced that
Neptune-Benson will become the Official Water Quality Sponsor of USA
Swimming, the national governing body for the sport of swimming in the
U.S., through 2020. As part of this sponsorship, Evoqua’s Neptune-Benson
will provide filtration and disinfection treatment systems for the U.S.
Olympic Team Trials – Swimming, and provide support at Phillips 66
National Championships, Toyota U.S. Open and other major USA Swimming

Neptune-Benson has been synonymous with water filtration and
disinfection for the commercial aquatics market since 1956. The USA
Swimming sponsorship builds on a long and successful partnership dating
back to 2008, when Neptune-Benson began providing both filtration and
secondary disinfection for all USA Swimming competitions including the
U.S. Olympic Trials in Omaha.

“Consistent and reliable access to clean, safe water is critical to
ensuring the health and success of competitive swimmers, no matter what
level of competition,” said Sean Curley, Vice President and General
Manager of Evoqua’s Aquatics Division. “Neptune-Benson has a proven
track record of providing safe and sustainable water quality solutions
to competitive pools, as it works to transform water and enrich life for
all participants. We are honored to continue providing high quality
filtration and disinfection solutions for select USA Swimming events.”

As part of the sponsorship, USA Swimming will use Neptune-Benson’s
Defender® Regenerative Media Filter and ETS-UV™ disinfection generators.
The Defender filter is an efficient, environmentally friendly
alternative to traditional sand filters: it uses up to 90 percent less
water, takes up a quarter of the space and provides pool operators with
up to 50% energy savings — all while removing particulate down to 1
micron versus 20-30 microns. ETS-UV disinfection generators provide a
supplemental source of disinfection, reducing chemical usage and
chloramines, thereby improving air quality at the air/water interface.
This provides competitive swimmers and spectators with a healthier
environment and reduces corrosion of surfaces in the natatorium.

“USA Swimming is committed to excellence at all levels of competition,
and the health and development of our athletes—and that all starts with
clean water,” USA Swimming Director of Partnership Marketing Jim Fox
said. “We know Evoqua and Neptune-Benson share that commitment, which
makes them the right partner for us.”
