The Calorex Pro-Pac has highlighted its environmentally friendly credentials in a breath-taking swimming pool in the Cotswolds.

The owner of the swimming pool gave SPATA award winning wet leisure experts, New Dawn Pools, the freedom to create the pool of her dreams with the only stipulation being that the project had to be environmentally friendly.

And with a Calorex Pro-Pac designed to provide an industry leading coefficient of performance, saving CO2 and reducing operating costs; Richard Adams of New Dawn Pools had only one heat pump in mind for this project.

The Calorex Pro-Pac uses state of the art green technology, meaning pools are heated at a fraction of the cost of gas, oil and direct electric heaters, but without the carbon footprint.

In line with the owner’s brief for energy efficiency, a Pro-Pac was installed as the plant room work horse and, in addition, two Certikin heat exchangers (one to assist the heat pump in the Winter and one for the hot tub), were installed and connected to a domestic boiler to boost the pool’s temperature when they have parties and to heat the spa independently.

The swimming pool has now become the latest flagship pool for New Dawn’s array of projects – particularly for future customers wishing to pursue similar environmentally friendly solutions.

“This is probably the pool of my career…so far,” admitted Adams. “We were honoured and privileged to be awarded this project, which was an absolute joy to work on.”

The Calorex Pro-Pac has several features such as ‘Smart Pool Pump Control’ which synchronise a pool pump to run only when the pool requires heating, significantly cutting down on pool pump running time.

As well as this, the Pro-Pac also offers touch screen controls, which enable easy adjustments of the pool water set point temperatures, and comes with three-year on-site parts and labour warranty.
