UBBESTON SWIMMING POOL


COVID-19 CLEANING AND DISINFECTING POLICY


This policy details the measures put in place to make our facility COVID secure and safe for users against virus contamination.


Our current measures:

Three times a week the pool is deep cleaned - there is a routine clean of the changing and WC rooms, emptying bins and disinfected the showers, washbasins, and loos. Mop heads are put into a bucket of disinfectant to soak overnight. The pool water is checked for chlorine and pH levels and appropriate treatments are added to the pool water accordingly.


Additional cleaning measures will be:

1. Disinfecting the door handles, shower on/off buttons, shower squeegee’s and mop and bucket handles.

2. In the WC room’s we will disinfect the loo flush buttons and taps.

3. In the pool hall we will disinfect the pool safety handrail, chairs and bench and emergency phone.

4. We will disinfect the bolt inside the changing rooms & internal door handles - the keycode door locks/ keys will be out of use at this present time.


Installed disinfecting equipment:

To help further protect pool users we have installed five wall mounted hand sanitising points throughout the facility.

Hand sanitisers are now placed: 4 by the entrance to each changing room - Flying Swan, Diving Duck, Gaggling Goose and Swim School changing rooms which can be used on entry to and exit of the building. Another hand sanitising point is placed by the outside courtyard area.


Pool water quality:

The pool water quality will be kept in accordance with best practice and guidance from PWTAG, thus maintaining appropriate chlorine content for everyone’s safety. Such chlorine levels are still well within normal safe swimming ranges for commercial swimming pools.


Ventilation:

We have a ventilator in place which operates daily to bring fresh outside air into the pool hall. We also have window ventilation with the use of trickle vents (within the window frame) to further improve fresh air flow throughout the pool hall.


Pool user procedure:

Please be sure to follow our step by step user procedure for the safety of all swimmers.

  1. On arrival sanitise your hands using one of the external hand-sanitising points
  2. Take off shoes in entranceway
  3. Come ‘beach ready’ preferably having showered at home beforehand
  4. Enter the pool hall.
  5. Enjoy your swim.
  6. Please use hand wash facilities if using the wc.
  7. Finish your swim and exit pool hall.
  8. Shower and change. N.B. Hairdryers are not to be used at this time. Please dry hair at home.
  9. Use shower squeegee to flush away any dirt/hair left on shower tray and mop any standing water on the changing room floor.
  10. Leave squeegee in shower area and leave mop and bucket in hallway.
  11. Gather belongings, put shoes on and exit premises, closing the door behind you
  12. Sanitise hands at external hand sanitiser point as you leave.

Social Distancing at the pool:

We kindly ask that everyone always observes social distancing guidance. Do not enter a changing room or the pool hall until previous users have vacated. If possible, arrive changed and ready to swim. Aim to arrive no sooner than 10 minutes before your swim time begins. If you are to arrive early, please stay in your car and do not wander around the premises as there are other domestic and commercial activities taking place nearby.


Please ensure you have vacated your changing room 15 minutes after the end of your swim session.


As an ongoing directive we require anyone who has possible COVID-19 symptoms NOT to attend their swimming session or swim lesson and to follow government guidance by self-isolating and getting a test.


We believe social distancing should be easy to maintain while utilising our facility due to the layout of the changing rooms and separate accesses into the pool hall.


We encourage you to practice your best hand hygiene behaviours by using the hand washing and hand sanitising options provided. Please take individual responsibility while attending the pool to ensure everyone’s collective safe enjoyment of our facility, many thanks.
