- Definition: Domestic Type Spa Pool – Business Use. (E.G. Holiday park individual lodges/cottages) A spa that is used for, or part of a business where there is financial reward and limited to 1 group of users per spa fill.
- Design bather load: The spa must be of a suitable size and water capacity for the amount of users within that lodge/caravan/building. E.g.a lodge that sleeps 6 must have a spa capable of safety handling 6 persons AND the ‘Bather Load’ with the water.
- Turnover of the body of water: The spa must be able to turnover the whole body of water through the spa filtration system within a maximum of 15 mins for low Bather load, reducing to 6 mins for high Bather load. (So ideally, work to the 6 minute turnover).
- In-line Sanitisation: This is a requirement to assist in keeping levels of residual sanitiser within the water during active use, pre & post bathing. (This DOES NOT replace the requirement for human checks and conventional water treatment.
- Cleaning and draining: The whole body of water must be flushed, drained and refilled after every group of users or weekly (whichever is sooner). For example, 1 family group check out of the lodge and another family check in, the water must be flush, drained and refilled BEFORE the next group can use the spa.
- Minimal pipework (especially air pipes): No deadlegs within the plumbing design.
- Shape and size:
- Supply, delivery and installations:
- Maximum temperature of 40 degrees Celsius.
