Temperature problems with main pool at Pyramids

The pool is currently open for business but swimmers are being advised that the temperature is at 24 degrees celsius and is dropping. This may be too cool for some recreational swimmers or those having fun splashing around. If the pool temperature continues to drop the pool may need to close until the issue is rectified.

The learner pool and gym remain unaffected and are open as usual. Swimmers are being encouraged to use the swimming pools at the Riverside Leisure Centre and Northbrook Swimming Pool while the problem is fixed. Members can use these other facilities at no extra cost.

Parkwood Leisure manages Pyramids on behalf of Exeter City Council.

Cllr Rosie Denham, Lead Councillor for Economy and Culture, said: "This is unfortunate timing during the school holidays and I would like to apologise to anyone who has been inconvenienced by the main pool being too cool. However we do have two other pools open for business just a short distance away and we are looking at alternative training facilities for clubs if they need to go elsewhere.

"The part we need to replace is a bespoke unit that has to be made from scratch. As soon as we realised that it had gone and the pool was losing temperature, we rang the manufacturer and they are working on the replacement as we speak."
