Pool Maintenance Ltd - Projects
We have been involved in the design, installation & maintenance of the following projects:
Leisure Centre, Great Yarmouth Marina.
The Great Yarmouth Marina Leisure Centre pool is our largest project to date. We fully automated the backwash and filtration system, using Pro Logic Control – PLC. We designed and manufactured stainless steel manifolds, pump suction and manifolds.
We installed very cost effective horizontal GRP filters, replaced the big steel filters. The circulating pumps are inverter driven and we installed all new chemical dosing – Bayrol PM5 chemcal doser with ATG UV system, operating on a timer, giving a fully automated back wash system.
This project required our engineers to work in a very confined working area and we kept the pool open for the duration of the 10 week project – having a huge impact on the revenue stream for the Centre.
This large scale project was delivered on budget and on time.
Wirksworth Swimming Pool, Derbyshire
This project began with Pool Maintenance being asked initially to undertake a site investigation, to establish why the pool was losing water. In the process of the investigation we found that the water quality was very poor. The system was very old, many of the pipes being in place for 35 years. Also, the system been grown over time with no design criteria and much of the equipment had been incorrectly specified.
Following our report we were asked to redesign and upgrade the entire water treatment system. This involved:
- Digging up all promenades
- Removing old pipework
- Installing two end wall outlet suction sumps.
- Installing new skimmer ,pipework & vacuum
- Ripping out old filtration system, including chemical dosing.
- Installing new filters, pumps & pipework
- Installing PM4 Bayrol chemical controller
- Providing full instruction manuals
- Staff training in the correct use of the equipment
- Sub contracting a new pool liner installation
The project took 3 weeks to complete – on time and on budget.

Powys C council – Upgrade of Municipal pool.
The main requirement for this project was to insulate the pool, as it was extremely costly to run. Also, a complete filtration system redesign was required.
A key problem that we identified was numerous circulation and control issues.
The Ingound pool pipework was 3inch diameter, combining with 15 year old undersized metric filters, which were in very poor condition. Also two circulating pumps were in use, both running at 100% capacity. We replaced them with one of the right capacity, resulting in a significant cost saving.
This upgrade involved the following activity:
- Drained down the filters
- Emptied media
- Cut up and disposed of the filters
- Slowed down water speed and switched to using use just one efficient pump. This alone saves £15,000 per annum

Merryfields Special Needs School, Newcastle Under Lyme, Staffordshire
For this full therapy pool refurbishment we removed the old water treatment system and installed a modern set of filters with a valve system, allowing each filter to be taken off line while keeping the facility running, thus maintaining operation and the revenue stream from clubs such as Water Babies.
Only 2 of the 4 filters were in usable condition, there was leaking water from valves and filters and no air support bracketing. The new filtration system involved 4 new filters, new bracketry, PVC pipework and new valves, complete with individual filter isolation.
Archbishop & Ilsley School, Birmingham
For this school pool, our brief was to remove and replace with new, the complete water filtration system. We ripped out all existing kit and undertook a full refurbishment of the filtration equipment.
Private Pool, Hale Barnes, Cheshire
This private pool had experienced severe algae growth over a period of several months. To remove the algae we undertook a chemical treatment of the pool, with significant backwashing.
