New municipal swimming pool complex opened
On Tuesday, March 14, 2023, the first municipal and therapy swimming pool complex of the Town of Rovinj-Rovigno was opened. The swimming pool complex is located within the Special Hospital for Orthopedics and Rehabilitation “Martin Horvat” Rovinj-Rovigno, and consists of a public (large) swimming pool with fresh water, a therapy swimming pool with sea water, areas for exercise and therapy, changing rooms, sanitary facilities and other amenities for both hospital and external users.
The public swimming pool, measuring 33.33 x 25.0 m, is made of stainless steel. The use of stainless steel in the design and construction of swimming pools has many advantages over other materials that have been used traditionally. Its use requires much less chemicals to maintain the hygiene and safety standards, and it has a long service life.
The swimming pool has a movable floor with a width of 3 lanes and a length of 25.0 m, which can be lowered to the maximum depth of the pool at 2.0 m, and lifted to the zero point. The movable floor increases the flexibility and functionality of the swimming pool for various purposes, as it allows for several activities to take place in a single swimming pool tank at the same time and at different depths.
In addition, the swimming pool is equipped with a leading safety system for detection and protection of its users against drowning, AngelEye View. This is an innovative software technology where patented underwater cameras detect all movement of users and send notifications to security personnel in the event of an accident.
