The 25m pool at Brean Splash Waterpark has been closed for the last two weeks whilst the floor in the main pool has been replaced. This was due for a replacement since its initial installation in 2011.
The previous liner was removed and a new cushion layer added before the new dark blue liner along with lane markings. This is a unique system offering a cushion feel underfoot which is popular amongst pool walkers and guests with disabilities. The pool is a constant depth of 1.12 meters.
900 solar panels have also been fitted across the roof of both Brean Splash & Brean Play. With a short investment payback period due to the latest in modern solar technology. Conservative estimate of £1 million financial benefit over the next 20 years.
Jeff Smith Leisure Manager commented ‘It is important we maintain the facility to the highest standard and completing this work during one of our quietest periods to limit the disruption to local swimmers. We are always looking at how we can improve our environmental impact and this along with our biomass boilers which heat all the pools at Brean Splash this is helping to reduce our carbon footprint’
The 25m pool is the home to Burnham on sea swimming club and our own popular Brean Splash swim school.
