Dear Winchester City Council,

(For the Winchester leisure & sports park)
Could I please have clarification to if you have a Pool Technical Operator, who is responsible for caring, taking samples, back washing and looking over the upkeep/maintenance of the pool?

How many Pool Technical Operators are employed?

What is the salary of a Pool Technical Operators?

Do the employees who are responsible for the swimming pool restricted to just caring for the pool only or are they expected to maintain other buildings that are owned by the university?

Yours faithfully,

Michael

Winchester City Council

Good Morning Michael,

 

In response to your FOI, please see below.

 

Everyone Active have on-site staff who hold the Pool Plant Operators
Qualification and are responsible for completing pool plant tasks and
follow the ‘Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group’ (PWTAG
[1]https://www.pwtag.org/) - guidance in standards and guidance in the
management of swimming, spa and hydrotherapy pools.

 

Regular water testing is carried out throughout the day to ensure water
quality and safety. Furthermore microbiological samples are collected and
analysed as per frequencies outlined within PWTAG guidance by a contractor
used across the Everyone Active group. Everyone Active also employ the
service of a contractor for the regular servicing and inspection of pool
plant equipment.

 

Everyone Active currently have 8 members of staff who hold a Pool Plant
Operators Qualification –
[2]https://www.swimming.org/ios/course-info....
This is a PWTAG approved Pool Plant Operator course. It covers everything
you need to effectively maintain a swimming pool, spa or water feature.
During this course staff will learn about circulation, filtration,
disinfection, pH correction and heating of pool water. They will also
learn how to maintain water which is safe and pleasant to swim in, how to
correctly test pool water and understand how to restore it to ideal
conditions. Certification lasts for three years.

 

Multiple job roles include this qualification as an essential
qualification as part of their role, including maintenance colleagues,
duty managers and team leaders, as a result salaries do vary.

 

Everyone Active do not have any responsibility over any University
buildings only the areas that fall within the red line boundary.

 

Kind regards,
