Here at Cally Pool & Gym we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment. We are doing this through actions such as being more energy efficient, minimising waste and joint actions with Islington Council.
- Changing to LED lights – these use up to 90% less energy than conventional halogen bulbs and are great for helping reduce energy consumption.
- Infrared Sensors – used to detect movement in an area enabling lights turn on when someone is present.
- Pool Covers - covers are used when the pools are not in use in order to reduce the amount of energy required to heat the water.
- Pool Inverters – used to automatically set and maintain pool temperatures.
- Building Management System – used to control, monitor adjust operational systems to help reduce energy consumption.
- Other measures include turning lights off where they are not needed, optimising air & water temperatures and using fresh air cooling.
REDUCING WATER WASTE
- Water saving shower heads – a water efficient showerhead can save more than 26 litres of water per 7 minute shower.
- Time flow push buttons– reduces the risk of taps and showers being left on.
- UV filtration system – safe and energy efficient water treatment using ultra violet lighting.
- Recycling Bins - we have several mixed recycling bins around the centre, we kindly ask that you dispose of waste in the correct bins.
- Plastic overshoes are no longer available – we are encouraging people to remove shoes before entering pool side changing rooms & wear flip flops or sliders.
- Collecting used sportswear – donate your pre-loved boots, trainers and sportswear at one of the allocated bins.
ENERGY & ENVIRONMENTAL ACTION PLAN
- At Cally Pool & Gym we have an Energy & Environmental action plan in place. We regularly review and update the plan with any actions and new ideas.
