THE performance of the thermal pool blankets in their maiden season at the Mansfield Aquatic Centre has been nothing short of remarkable.
The blankets were installed on both the main 33 metre pool and the learners’ pool shortly after the commencement of the 2014/15 season.
Mansfield Shire mayor Marg Attley said “the blankets are part of the council’s commitment to improving the facility to be more efficient and user friendly”.
“The pool blanket system has successfully reduced heat loss from the pool, as well as reducing water and chemical usage through the replacement of evaporated water,” she said.
“Daily monitoring of pool temperatures has confirmed that the pools maintained a far higher and more consistent temperature than ever before.”
Facility manager Kate Barnett said that YMCA staff had received some overwhelmingly positive feedback regarding the pool this season.
