For example – Did you know that HSG179 Managing Health and Safety in Swimming Pools and BS EN13451 requires all swimming pool operators to ensure that there are no risks of danger from the inlets and outlets of swimming pools and spas?

  • Inlets and Outlets should be designed to prevent limbs and fingers getting trapped
  • Undue suction should not be created, which could result in a body being held against a grille, and there should be no exposed sharp edges. This is particularly important in areas of moving water
  • Where Spa Pools are installed particular attention should be given to ensure users are not harmed by the water/air flow inlets and that body parts or hair are not caught by suction outlets
  • The main hazards associated with pool water treatment systems include: risks to bathers from poor hydraulic design, eg inlets and outlets of unsafe design and operating at pressures where suction from outlets or the buffeting from inlets can result in a hazard to bathers.

Taking a proactive approach to health and safety, saves lives, and BRIO Group can assist you in ensuring your Pool and Spa outlets are not a hazard to the users of the facilities.
