The Swim England Facilities team

Managing Your Pool

The Swim England Facilities team provide expert guidance on sustainable pool design, management and health and safety to ensure pool builds are efficient, effective and sustainable for the owner.

We also advise on pool refurbishments to achieve improved facility performance.

Working nation-wide with local authorities, leisure consultants, architects, designers and sports specialists we look beyond fit-for-purpose criteria and advise on suitability, regeneration, ROI,  local engagement and sustainability for your location.

We are responsible for leading, creating and sharing industry guidance and documents on pool builds in key areas such as: design, water treatment and supervision in pools.
