Reopening of swimming pool operations after Covid-19 shutdown

As the UK government continues to ease the restrictions imposed during the Coronavirus pandemic lockdown, it is essential that all pool operators prepare a robust plan to ensure the safe re-opening of their facilities. This should be ready to implement once clearance to reopen pools is signalled and will need to deal with the immediate measures to make the pool safe for use, as well as revised processes and procedures for daily operations, maintaining hygiene and ensuring appropriate social distancing measures.

Spectrum Training and Consultancy Services recommends pool operators to refer to the in-depth guidance and technical notes relating to Covid-19, published by the Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group (PWTAG), of which Spectrum’s principal, Chris Bowler, is a member. This comprehensive guidance provides management checklists and detailed information from leading experts in the pool water treatment industry.

You can find the current PWTAG guidance on Covid-19 here

Swim England has also published Return to the Pool guidance, which can be viewed here

Site-specific consultancy

Spectrum is also able to offer you site-specific advice and consultancy to help you prepare for safe reopening of pool operations. We can deliver advice clinics via video conference with your management team and your pool technicians and we can assist with the drafting of policies and procedures and Covid-19 specific operator checklists. Each organisation has different requirements so we will tailor our clinics and consultancy services to suit your individual needs.
