First of all we would like to say a big thank you to all our valued customers for their patience and to all the companies and individuals who have come forward to offer their experience and knowledge on our boiler system at the lido during this challenging time.
Extensive investigations have been ongoing at the lido to try and resolve the boiler failure. These options have included investigations as to whether we could bypass the component, repair it, replace it or if we needed to replace the entire burner system including control panel. Many different companies have either given their time free of charge or been on site under contract to assist us. Following these extensive investigations we can now confirm that the burner and control panel require complete replacement.
The burner which has been selected will arrive on site early next week and will be up and running in time for the bank holiday weekend and for the Mira Showers Triathlon on the 1st May.
We have received a lot of support, goodwill and understanding from our members and would like to thank everyone for their patience during this difficult time. Every precaution has been taken to ensure we have received advice from the right people/companies to ensure the correct solution has been found to protect the lido in the long term. As a thank you for your patience we are going to provide the following:
Additional evening swims for our season ticket holders
On the following dates:
14th May, 4th June, 12th Aug
These evening swims will run from 7.30pm – 9.00pm
Heated swimming for longer at the end of the season.
We will run the pool water at the normal temperatures for an extra week on the end of the season. Then start to reduce the temperature for the cold swims from the 2nd Oct ready for the Devil’s Aquathlon on the 9th Oct.
Sauna Cabin on site
We will hire a sauna cabin to be located on site during the last two weeks of the season to offer a Scandinavian swimming experience for you.
Whilst awaiting installation of the new burner we shall remain open for all our public swimming times.
