Antivortex Grills

Current legislation recommends that there are two suction points in a pool at a distance of 2m apart, unfortunately logistically on many pools where only one sump has been fitted this is very expensive to retrofit, as the pool shell need to be excavated to install a new suction point.

The grill can however be brought up to current standard by fitting an anti vortex grill on the current suction point, this will stop any entrapment by allowing the suction to be spread evenly around the whole surface of the grill. Each anti vortex grill is specifically designed for the pool circulation flow; there are slots cut into both the sides and the top of the grill allowing an even suction.

The new grill can be fitted to the pool floor either with the pool empty or full with HSE qualified specialist underwater diving team.

It is the responsibility of the Pool Operator to carry out Risk Assessments and decide if the provision of an Anti Vortex grill will remove the hazard or lower the risk to an acceptable level.
