The Shoreditch club boasts a 25m pool — one of only a handful of 25m pools in the City — and a fully equipped gymnasium and studios.

We decided to explore chlorine-free options for our pool as we understand the benefits and demand from swimmers,” explained general manager Liz Barker.

We currently use Ozone at our CityPoint Club but were put off by the installation costs. Then we were approached by Poolsan. It wasn't a system I had previously heard of, so we were a little dubious. But I visited the Leatherhead Leisure Centre, where there's been long term trials and saw how it worked. From there, we negotiated installation and went ahead.

Although the initial testing period did throw up some issues, we've worked through them and everything is running well now. Most importantly, we've had some good feedback from our members about the clarity of the water and the fact they don't smell of chlorine."

Our coaches from Swim for Tri [who coach members training for triathlons] also enjoy the chlorine-free pool and buy into the benefits.

And even the local environmental health officer has commented on our pool maintenance standards and our approach to using more environmentally and bather-friendly products.
