Your safety, as well as the safety of our team, is and always will be, our number one priority. Here at Swim Works we have always prided ourselves on innovation and excellence, with hygiene and health and safety at the top of our list. It is also worth noting that each of our pools at Swim Works have a special filtration, UV sanitiser, which is on top of our chlorination. As well as fresh filtered air handling systems in both the pools and changing areas. Our pool plant and operating systems are of the highest standards.
