Opening times, prices, and information on the facilities available
Like other swimming pools, Hythe Pool routinely tests for legionella in its water systems. On Monday we received a notification that traces of legionella had been found in the showers in the women's changing room.
The type of legionella found is common and is very low risk. However, we have contacted the small number of people who used the women's changing room before the discovery to let them know.
The showers were closed as soon as we received this news to allow the necessary treatment to be undertaken. Following treatment - and tests to confirm this has been effective - the showers at the pool will reopen.
The pool is unaffected and remains open for swimming.
