Bathing water quality - Swimming pools
In the interests of public health we conduct regular water quality sampling at various swimming pools within Adur and Worthing, listed below.
These pools conduct their own tests to ensure disinfection levels are correct. When sampling the water, we are testing for the presence of potentially harmful bacteria to check whether the disinfection treatment is effective.
Samples are delivered to the Environmental Microbiology Unit at Haywards Heath Hospital for analysis.
If levels of potentially harmful bacteria are found to be too high then we recommend that the pool's disinfection levels are revised and a re-test is conducted. If necessary we will take enforcement action to resolve any issues.
To view a pool's test results please contact the relevant pool owners or operators directly:
