COTSWOLD POOL ADDS ACCESS EQUIPMENT People with disabilities in Cirencester now have better access to the swimming pool at Cotswold Leisure Centre thanks to the installation of new equipment. The equipment, worth £12,000, consists of a powered transfer hoist, an adjustable changing bed, a chair to transport swimmers to the poolside, and a pool hoist to lift users in and out of the water. Funding for the equipment was provided by a grant from Cirencester SCOPE (a small independent charity affiliated to the National SCOPE organisation), financial support from Cotswold District Council (CDC) and fund raising efforts from the local community. Cllr Stephen Hirst, cabinet member for Health and Leisure at CDC, attended a ceremony to celebrate the launch of the equipment and said: “This new equipment is a game changer, and I hope that this will encourage a big increase in take-up from those who previously felt excluded.”

London School Looks North For Pool Tiling Needs Cheshire-based Tiling & Pool Projects (UK) Ltd were working in the capital recently after being approached by the Facilities Manager at The Lady Eleanor Holles School, a prestigious private education establishment in Hampton, west London. The school needed a reliable company to tile its 25m swimming pool and pool surround floors. After meeting on site and discussing the available options, the company then provided references and tile samples so that the client could be sure they were dealing with a professional company. Soon after that the decision was made and a date set for the pool to be drained and work started. The firm from the northwest completed the works in the time scale allowed and upon completion the client was extremely pleased with the finished result. “We were confident when we chose Tiling & Pool Projects to carry out

the works due to the excellent references we had back from previous customers who had used them for similar projects. The team of men who carried out the works were fantastic from start to finish and any problems that did occur were dealt with and fixed quickly,” said Mr Lowe the Facilities Manager. Tony Crank, Managing Director of Tiling & Pool Projects said: “The contract had a few problems during the works, but this can be expected when dealing with swimming pool repairs/ refurbishments. The client and his staff were fantastic and

nothing was too much trouble during the contract with regard to quick decisions. “We work all over the UK and carry out projects that include full re-tiles, repairs, re-grouting to areas using cement based and epoxy materials, expansion joints and sika products. “We have carried out works for many local authorities, schools, hotels, health clubs and private clients.” Tiling & Pool Projects (UK) Ltd 0161 969 0660 www.tilingandpoolprojects.co.uk

A Monopool That’s Worth Czech-ing Out! This beautiful pool, installed by North London pool specialist, Unipools, showcases the beauty of NIVEKO products – Monopools made in the Czech Republic and supplied in the UK by Certikin International. Having installed the outdoor pool at this property in Hertfordshire some ten years ago, the owner of the property called in Unipools to install an indoor one. As a keen athlete who swims daily, the owner wanted a lap pool that he could use throughout the year. The stunning 2m by 19m level deck pool, called the ‘Overflow Multi’ is a customised pool with no limits in dimensions, it was the cornerstone of a new gym/pool complex which took just under a year to complete. The steel-blue Monopool was brought over to England in seven insulated pieces with all the inlet and outlet fittings. They were then welded together by the NIVEKO engineers, who also plumbed and fitted the in-roller motor cover shaft on site. It was supplied with an insulated

buffer tank and fully automatic technology modular unit for the NIVEKO filtration set. Managing Director of Unipools, Selwyn Mindel said: “This was a challenging project but I am very impressed with how easy the NIVEKO is to install and how well thought-out the design process is. The pools have a beautiful sleek design and the superior finish and quality is what sets it apart from other one-piece pools.” Controlling the temperature of the water and the pool hall is a Calorex Variheat fresh air unit.
