A commercial swimming pool is defined as a swimming or leisure pool where members of the public accessing the facility pay to do so.
As well as obvious examples like local authority swimming baths and leisure centres, where members of the public pay directly to use the facilities, it also includes locations where members of the public pay indirectly to use a swimming pool as part of other services or benefits. Examples of commercial swimming pools Hydrospec have been involved with include:
- Leisure pools
- Local authority pools
- Competition swimming pools
- School, college and university swimming pools
- Hydrotherapy (SEN) pools (See specific page on Hydrotherapy pools)
- Hotel swimming pools
- Holiday park swimming pools
- Diver training pools
- Private health and fitness club pools
- Wave and flume pools
- Toddler and fun pools
Commercial swimming pools are subject to specific legislation, standards and regulations that residential swimming pools are exempt from. Hydrospec are the UK’s leading experts in guiding you through, from design stage through to completion, the potential minefield of regulation governing commercial pool installations to ensure your specification and finished project is compliant from the outset.
Hydrospec have been employed to undertake numerous projects for the rectification of installations contravening current standards. Our teams have corrected the areas of the project required to bring the pool into compliance with requisite regulations.
All Hydrospec competition pools are designed and built to governing ASA and FINA standards.

Case Study // Refurbishment of Fairfield Leisure Centre
Dartford Borough Council allowed Hydrospec to recreate and refurbish the identity of this mature Leisure centre.
Case Study // Refurbishment of Dulwich Leisure Centre
Dulwich Leisure Centre is yet another super example of Hydrospec’s work. Built in 1892, the pool needed extensive regeneration to bring it up to modern standards and regulations, whilst still retaining its distinctive Victorian character.
