Cleaning at the venue.
All surfaces within the venue are regularly cleaned with disinfectant by our Crew. This cleaning is not limited to but includes: Walls, Floors, Seating, Handles, Lockers, Toliets, Sinks, Taps, Basins, Cabins. This has been the case since 2018 when The Pound Edinburgh opened.

This chemical is used to clean facilities throughout the day. Each facility will be closed twice daily for a period of 20 minutes each to allow our chemicals to work inside each facility. This does not apply to our hot tub, however the pool surrounds will be cleaned on a regular basis throughout the day. We apologise for any inconvenience caused in advance.

Dark Spaces and Cabins will also be closed on a random basis to allow for effective cleaning.
