This will help with the additional cleaning measures that the pool has had to put in place to ensure Covid-19 compliance.

The Sagewash Sanitizer kills viruses and bacteria as well as destroying harmful organisms and controlling algae.

It will enable staff to disinfect and clean large areas and items with greater speed, meaning that more time for swimming sessions can be made available.

Chairman of Ythan ASC, John Rae said: “Ythan ASC has been part of the local community for 40 years and we have been working very closely with staff at the pool to allow us to get back to the water.

"The swimming club, through the support of a local business, are delighted to donate a Sagewash Sanitizer which will help the necessary cleaning to be done more quickly and efficiently allowing more access to the water for swimmers of all kinds”.
