Tepid Baths Spa Pool Reopened


A spa pool at Tepid Baths that had closed down two weeks ago after testing positive for legionella bacteria has been reopened.

The spa was opened again yesterday afternoon after being treated according to procedures recommended by the Auckland Regional Public Health Service, and confirmation that negative test results had been returned.

Auckland Council Acting Leisure Manager Michael Groom thanks pool users for their patience and understanding while the spa was shut.

“We take health protection very seriously and as soon as we were informed of the positive result, the pool was shut immediately.”

“Visitors to the Tepid Baths, particularly regular spa pool users, have been hugely understanding of the reasons for its closure and the need for us to be certain the pool was negative for the bacteria before it could be reopened,” adds Mr Groom.

The pool will continue to be monitored over the next three months to ensure testing for the bacteria remains negative.

Additionally, a new cleaning regime has been established throughout Auckland Council’s leisure facilities to minimise the risk of future occurrences of the bacteria, meaning processes for all spa pools exceed current New Zealand Standards.

We had a phenomenal time last year. Our team, made up of mini-teams from a whole lot of our centre, came third in the open team competition! It was an incredibly fun day, and the run-up to the day itself, with our six week running club, was also amazing.

So it should come as no surprise that we’re doing it all again!

Early-bird registration to take part in Round the Bays 2015 as part of the Auckland Leisure team will open 8 January 2015. Watch this space…

Tepid Baths Learn to Swim best in NZ


Tepid Baths has won the top prize at this year’s New Zealand Swimming Coaches and Teachers Association (NZSCTA) awards! Its Learn to Swim programme won the Outstanding Swim School of the Year award at the ceremony in Wellington.

Auckland Council Pools and Leisure Manager Rob McGee says, “This is a major achievement for the hard working Tepid Baths team who have put a huge amount of effort into establishing their Learn to Swim programme. In just two years, since the Tepid Baths reopened, the team has built an award-winning programme that people are lining up to join. The ‘Teps’ team is supported by a network-wide programme of classes and exceptional instructors – so this is really an award that all of our facilities can be proud of.”
