Several swimmers raised concerns regarding the quality of the main pool water of the lido following our new Dog Swim event in October.
In preparation for our annual Christmas Day Swim we circulate the pool and shock dosed (high levels of chlorine) as well as topping up with fresh water. As a form of reassurance, this year we have also instructed Kingfisher Environmental Services Ltd to test the pool water quality.
Kingfisher are an independent UKAS Accredited Laboratory who monitor our water throughout the summer season. On the 23rd November they confirmed that ‘all bacterial results are highly satisfactory’. The pool water will now be maintained leading up to Christmas Day and following this our Brass Monkey Swim on 8th January.
