Design recommendations for Children Wellness pools

Just like adults, children also deserve to enjoy these types of pools. They are a way of introducing children to a culture of water through fun spaces where they can have a good time other than in a pool.

Children´s  wellness pools that are watched over by a lifeguard also allow adults to enjoy their downtime in peace.



Standar features:

  • Uses: Children´s leisure
  • Target public: Children from 3 to 12
  • Seasonality: All year round

Design recomendations

  • Geometry:  There no specific geometry in this case as they can be any shape from rectangular, to round trhough to completly irregular.
  • Temperature:  Between 32 and 34 ºC. The temperature is slightly lower than in adult wellness pools as kids tend to move around more once in them.
  • Depth:  From 0.3 to 0.6 m. all water features such as air bubbles and hydromassage benches are designed based on the stature of children from 3 to 12.
  • Recirculation time:  As often as possible. In order to avoid any risk of Legionella from spreading through air and water convection, the recommended recirculation time is every 20–30 minutes.
  • Water Treatment:  In order to look after children’s health as well as possible, the system recommended for these types of pool is called Neolysis, which in a single reactor combines salt chlorination with UV radiation.
  • Pool shell finish:  Ceramic or vitreous tiling.
  • Water recirculation:  Overflow channel around the entire edge of the pool to reach the level required for filtration.
  • Construction system:  Concrete basin.
  • Regulations:  It is important to compare previous regulations with the ones currently in force.
