PRODUCT NEWS Roko Health Club Group Gives Thumbs Up To COVERFree

The Roko Health Club group have five sites in the UK offering quality gym and leisure facilities.

Roko decided to trial the new COVERFree liquid pool cover product from HeatPumps4Pools Ltd. They had previously been using another liquid pool cover product and wanted to evaluate the performance, benefits and cost savings that using the product could offer. COVERFree was initially trialled on two pools at Roko’s York site. The pools are 20 x 8m and 6 x 6m in size.

Stuart Holmes, Maintenance Manager at the York site reported: “The changeover from Heatsavr to COVERFree was incredibly straightforward and problem free. We simply flushed the existing dosing pump through, recalibrated it and primed it with the COVERFree liquid pool cover. “After extensive testing, we have found COVERFree to be just as effective as the previous liquid pool cover product that we were using for reducing heat loss, evaporation, and water loss from the pool.

“COVERFree’s lower dosing rate means that the amount of liquid pool cover used has reduced by over 50% from 144 ml per day to 78 ml per day required by COVERFree. This will give us

substantial cost savings by using COVERFree on our five pools. “Our building

management system (BMS) accurately records the running costs for the pool heating and air handling and we have found that using COVERFree gives us measurable cost savings for the heating of the pool water, the dehumidification process and the air heating.”

As well as the cost savings that are on

offer, Roko also found other benefits arising from the fact that COVERFree does not

contain any alcohol and uses a patented polymer based formula.

As the product is non-flammable, Roko found that the risk assessment for the pool plant room was not as high compared with the previous flammable alcohol based product. The success of the trial means that all of the company’s pools will now use the product to deliver considerable cost savings and to allow the group to meet its energy reduction and environmental targets. COVERFree is suitable for both indoor and outdoor domestic and commercial pools. It is available in three sizes with no minimum order quantity and free delivery. COVERFree can be added to the pool by hand or an automatic dosing pump is available.

One of the points it has been working on was to extend the options of the system to connect more applications. Until recently you could only connect the backwash to the system as an extra. This is now changing with the 4X Extension.

This is a small device that can be built into your electrical box and which has four extra inputs and outputs plus a connection for the solar panel. Where

IntelliPool’s first concern was to maintain the optimum quality of the swimming pool water, the

operation of the system is now being extended to the pool environment. With extra inputs and outputs owners can now operate their garden lighting, their infinity pool, their waterfall or their spa via the internet or the remote control.
