Heated Pool Operations

Council appreciates that we have passionate and dedicated customers who utilise our heated swimming pools at Corrimal and Dapto year round for health and training pursuits. Council endeavours to ensure our outdoor heated pools are able to accommodate lap swimming and competitive training throughout the varying and at times challenging winter weather conditions. 

At Corrimal and Dapto heated pools we aim to provide an optimum pool water temperature of 24 degrees with our goal to maintain a minimum water temperature of 22 degrees throughout winter. To achieve this we operate our heating plants at full capacity and utilise thermal pool blankets outside our opening hours. 

These measures are largely effective in retaining heat however there may be times where we are unable to use the pool blankets on a regular basis (for example where there is predicted overnight moderate to high wind gusts), such conditions inadvertently sees a gradual decline in pool water temperature. 

Unfortunately we may also occasionally experience interruptions to energy or water supply or unplanned failures impacting on our plant and equipment operations. 

In all such situations we will endeavour to maintain all our pool operations open to enable our fee paying customers to continue to pursue their varying health and swimming training regimes. 

Storm events, repetitive adverse weather conditions or inability to operate plant will occasionally occur and not enable Council to provide heated water at desired levels. In such circumstances we encourage those swimmers to use their discretion as to whether they wish to swim at the heated pool or explore alternative options. 

It is important to note that whilst our heated pools remain open that all entry fees and charges will remain applicable.

Swimming Pool temperatures are displayed at entry of our heated pools and if you have any queries please speak to our pool staff on site.
