Central Worthing’s premier fitness and swimming venue, Splashpoint Leisure Centre was opened in spring 2013. The centre provides a range of fitness suites and classes, plus 3 swimming pools, - a leisure pool, main pool and a diving pool. The main pool and diving pools are equipped with a movable floor operated by ‘hydraulic rams’, which use no outside power, to adjust the depth of the pool instead of emptying or topping up water levels.

Further water-saving is provided by an innovative, industry leading filtration system which allows the filtration medium to be cleaned without the need for frequent filter replacements and drain-downs, saving waste and water.

Heating for the pool and hot water for customer use is provided by a combined heat and power unit (CHP), backed up with gas-fired boilers. As well as hot water, the CHP generates electricity that is used within the building. Local heating demand elsewhere in the building can be satisfied by a high capacity ground source heat pump which utilises heat from the ground to efficiently heat the building. This system can also serve the building with chilled water, keeping fitness suites and workout areas cool.

Large amounts of water and air have to be pumped around the building and to the pools, so variable speed drive pump motors help reduce the energy needed by reducing flow rates when not needed.

All this technology is managed by a building management system (BMS), which ensures that all this equipment works efficiently in tandem with each other, and that backup systems are engaged when required.
