Heeley air/water quality
As you may be aware we are experiencing problems at the moment with the air/water quality at Heeley which has caused coughing bouts, stinging eyes and skin rashes, to varying extents for a few of our swimmers. All water tests are well within standard limits but clearly something is a miss. It appears to be worse on hotter days. We have asked Heeley to address the issue as a matter of urgency. In the meantime however can we ask that ALL swimmers shower before entering the pool, particularly at Heeley, to ensure that no contaminants from hair gel, make up, sweat, deodorants, etc are added to the pool as irritants can be produced when these chemicals react with the chlorine based compounds.
