Everybody Health and Leisure have been working in partnership with Cheshire East Council to introduce two new Chlorine Hyprolyser units, the project was managed by Equans. These systems have been installed at two of the larger swimming pools within the Everybody estate, Crewe Lifestyle Centre and Macclesfield Leisure Centre.
The Chlorine Hyprolyser units produce a form of chlorine which is then generated by electrolysis of diluted brine solution. This is done through salt which is added on a daily basis. The Chlorine that is produced is safe and user friendly, where the units themselves also bring a number of environmental and sustainability improvements to Everybody’s current leisure operations as they seek to further reduce their carbon footprint.
In light of the nationwide chlorine shortages, installing these Hyprolyser units has brought an extra level of resilience to the charity, ensuring the swimming pool operations continue to run unaffected.
Dominic Crisp, Head of Operations at Everybody Health & Leisure, commented:
“This project brings an extra layer of resilience to our facility operations should further chlorine shortages occur in the future. Investing in these units will not only just see a number of environmental and sustainability benefits but will also further support our Learn To Swim Scheme. This will aid Everybody in continuing to prioritise the learning and development of children’s swimming in Cheshire East by ensuring minimal, if not zero, disruption is caused in the future due to delays in supply chains. “
Peter Shallcross, Building and Statutory Compliance Manager, at Cheshire East Council shares:
“Cheshire East Council’s Facilities Management Service continue their close working partnership with Everybody Health and Leisure and are delighted with the success of the recent installation of the Hyprolyser systems, to the swimming pools at Crewe Lifestyle Centre and Macclesfield Leisure Centre.
The significant safety benefits of using salt as the primary raw material for producing disinfectant has now eliminated the need for the delivery, storage and handling of hazardous chlorine chemicals.
Apart from the improvement in plant room safety standards, the introduction of the Hyprolyser systems has also offered the advantage of an environmentally friendly means of producing chlorine, together with lower operating and ongoing maintenance costs.”
