GL1 Leisure Centre, Gloucester
2.1 million kWh savings worth £200k since the Pool Sentry system was installed in September 2011. The carbon emissions this has saved are equivalent to 8.5 million car miles (the same as keeping 1,000 cars off the road for a year).
In addition to the large energy savings there was a substantial reduction in the amount of chemicals used, as well as an improvement in the control of the water chemistry and in the quality of the water.
"I am very pleased with the whole system. To be honest I had my doubts at first but once it was installed I was very impressed. I too had concerns regarding turnover times, but the slower the water goes through the filtration system the better the filtration will work. Once our system was installed I monitored the test results, then adjusted the pump speeds on the VSD's to give me optimum filtration and water quality.
I have seen a significant decrease in combined chloramines and the clarity of the water is excellent. Here at GL1, we have four pools and the water quality is second to none. We host the National Synchronised Swimming championships here annually and they always comment on the clarity of the water."
