There are 4 weeks with water heated to 20c, then 10 weeks of cold water swimming and 2 weeks of swimming after the boilers have been turned on to heat the pool up ready for the 2018 heated season.
To help us maintain water quality can all swimmers please shower before entering the pool.
If you are applying sun cream, please apply 15 minutes before swimming. This allows it to soak into the skin and not wash off. This ensures the suncream will be more effective
Whilst we endeavour to maintain a consistent water temperature of 28C/82F this is changeable due to the Great British weather conditions and other issues out of our control. During periods of cooler outdoor air temperatures (particually at the beginning and end of the season) the pool cools down faster than we can heat it… If the pool being at the full 28C is important to you please call us on 01433 650843 before your visit and ask for the current water temperature. We will also update the pool homepage if the temperature drops below 26C.
Pool Maximum Capacity
During warm weather we may reach the maximum capacity of the pool and pool area, this limit is set by Health and Safety regulations. In the event we do reach this capacity further admittance to the pool and pool area will be strictly on a 1 out 1 in basis. Please check at the pool office on hot days before paying for parking in the pay and display car park.
Part of the pool will be available for lane swimming each day; the lane may be removed during busy periods at the managements discretion. Specific adults only lane swimming is available all season on a Monday & Wednesday evening 19:30 - 21:00.

Storm closure procedures
In the event of thunder storms we must clear the pool immediately. An 'all clear' to re-enter the water will be given once there has been a 20 minute lapse between thunder rolls. Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds for lost swimming time.
