Water Management Solutions


Water management is at the heart of every successful project. Beneath the eye-catching features of your attraction is an intricate system that controls water usage and quality, and ensures that your attraction is safe, efficient and sustainable over time. Vortex has developed two industry-leading types of systems: Recirculation and Smartflow™.


Recirculation and Smartflow™ systems are specifically engineered to meet your project’s demands and manufactured in our state-of-the art manufacturing facility. Combined with on-demand activation options, nozzle technologies and our innovative Maestro water controller, our water management technologies provide a complete, eco-friendly and cost-efficient solution to ensure your project’s success, season after season.

Recirculation system

Recirculation is a closed-circuit system that filters, disinfects and reuses water. Our Recirculation systems are more cost-efficient, specifically engineered by our in-house team to meet your project’s unique requirements and therefore superior in quality to site-built systems.

Smartflow™ system

Smartflow™ systems utilize potable water from an existing water source. The effluent water returns to the municipal treatment system or transfers into a holding tank where it is repurposed to nourish vegetation and replenish ground water.


Intelligent Water Control

MaestroPro™ is the central control system that operates all of our managements systems. MaestroPro™ gives you full control of multiple water functions; using a simple and intuitive user interface, you can activate products, orchestrate lighting, and synchronize water features. MaestroPro™ also includes Link™ – an intuitive web interface that you can remotely access from your mobile device to control a single or multiple locations.
