Swimming Pool Update January 2022

The air handling unit (AHU) in the main swimming pool was decommissioned in 2021 because it is unsafe to run and it needs to be replaced.

We are delighted that our Board approved funding to replace the AHU in Summer 2022. The AHU takes moisture out of the air and prevents condensation. Without a working AHU, we face increased condensation and damage to the pool building and pool itself. It would also be uncomfortable for our swimmers and pool users. We have lowered the temperature of the pool water and kept the pool covered to prevent any further damage ahead of the replacement AHU.

We hope to begin works in the warmer months during the Summer , with the hope of opening the main pool in Autumn 2022. The work will also coincide with the School holidays , so as not to impact on students and teachers already dealing with Covid ventilation requirements.
