Kickboards, noodles, aqua mats and other equipment may be used in lessons to provide freedom of movement and to assist with mobility.

Our pool has an automatic dosing system that tests the water every 6 minutes and then doses chemicals accordingly. Our sanitation system is state of the art with a combination of Chlorine, UV and Ozone. On top of this, we vacuum the pool every evening and send a sample of our pool water away for biological testing once a month.
