Geoff Leaver
Director – Swimplex

Geoff Leaver is a founding Director of Swimplex Pty Ltd, a broad-based company dedicated to the needs of the commercial aquatic industry. Swimplex can trace its roots back to the early 1980’s in Canberra marketing energy saving devices. Solar pool heating and heat retention quickly became core activities and this grew to encompass pool water treatment. Since these early days Swimplex can now boast over 280 successfully completed aquatic projects across Australia. In addition to aquatic contracting Swimplex manufactures and distributes a range of pool hardware products such as its world-recognised Wetdeck® pool grate. Swimplex is a leading distributor of waterslide and aquatic play structure equipment and also the “Myrtha” pre-engineered pool construction system out of Italy.

Swimplex’s Water Attractions division is run by Geoff’s son Daniel, a graduate Industrial Designer. In a few short years their operation has grown to dominate the proliferation of waterslides, and water play structures on Australian Aquatic Centres.

Geoff will outline the community impact of the inclusion of leisure water activities to older facilities.
