Q?

IS THERE A POLICY ON BABIES USING THE AQUA DOME?

A.

Yes!

  1. Young babies get cold quickly and easily so water temperature is important. The main pool of the Aqua Dome is maintained at 29C and the whirlpool spas at 31C.
  2. Young babies under 3 months require a water temperature of 32C and so the Aqua Dome is not suitable nor recommended for their use.
  3. For babies over 3 months water should be 30C so use of the Aqua Dome is at the discretion of the parent.
  4. If the baby starts to shiver, get out of the water, dry your baby and get them warmed up.
  5. Proper swimming nappies must be worn by all babies.
  6. Babies as long as they are well, can be taken swimming once they have had their immunisation jabs.
  7. Do not spend too long in the pool with your baby. No more than 30 minutes for the first few sessions is recommended.
  8. If you are worried about your baby’s health, or have a specific query, talk to your GP or other health professional.
  9. If your child has had diarrhoea, wait for two weeks after it clears before letting them enter a swimming pool.
