Nappy Policy

At Waterlife Swim School we insist that each swimmer under the age of 2 years “doubles up” with a neoprene nappy and a under layer for hygiene.

The passing of solids (or semi-solids) into the water can create a serious risk of an infection called Cryptosporidium being passed into the water. Should a movement occur and leaks into the swimming pool, we must cancel classes, and drain, clean, re-fill and re-heat the water, usually a 24 hourNappy1 turn around.

If you arrive at your class without a neoprene nappy you may not be able to swim.

The neoprene nappy comes in a variety of colours and sizes. They start from:

X small – birth to 2 months (3-4kg)

XX large – toddler (16kg+)

Prices start from around £9.99 from www.splashabout.com

Nappy2

 

Although disposable nappies are available from chemists and supermarkets we are conscious of the environmental impact that our nappy mountains create having been used only once.

 

We therefore encourage the use of an under wrap and biodegradable liner such as the splashabout wrap and liner system.
