The indoor heated swimming pool
Our indoor heated swimming pool welcomes an incredible 22,000+ people a year. This popular facility is available for students and is often used as part of our training programmes. We have an experienced instructor who runs our popular baby and toddler swimming classes, and we also offer lifeguard training. Read on to find out more.
The pool measures 14m by 7m and can take a maximum of 20 swimmers. There is disabled access via a hoist. The pool is heated to a comfortable 30.5 degrees. There are male and female changing rooms complete with showers and toilets.
It’s an eco-friendly ‘Green Pool’
Thanks to a £50,000 grant from the Big Lottery Fund, UKSA’s pool is a Green Pool, with an innovative heating and hot water system – the first of its type ever to be installed.
Island company Minus7 were the brains behind the system, which uses endo-thermic panels on the roof of the pool building to harvest energy.
The energy is delivered to a heat store (solar energy processor) which heats the pool water, removing the need for gas. Any spare heat feeds into the kit-drying rooms, and surplus heat from that feeds into a cold store which services the air conditioning in another large room!
