Vandalised Boiler At Local Leisure Centre

The Solution –

Emergency Response, Replacement Temporary Boiler

A local authority run leisure centre was plunged into chaos when vandals targeted the site’s industrial boiler. The boiler was left inoperable, needing considerable repairs and the day to day operation of the leisure complex was at risk.

Without being able to heat the pool and shower area adequately, and the ambient temperature of the whole building dropping, the comfort of customers and staff was in jeopardy, which could have a serious financial impact on the business overall.

Aqua Hire were approached by the facility management company operating the site, and from the outset it was clear time was of the essence. The team responded swiftly, delivering a 600kW boiler hire unit, along with all necessary ancillaries such as hoses, fittings etc to ensure installation was quick and operational disruption could be kept to an absolute minimum.

The full hire solution included:

  • 600kW boiler on a fully flexible hire agreement
  • Hose, fittings, cabling and pipework – everything necessary for a quick install once on site

“This is a prime example of when emergency hire really comes into its own” explains Aqua Hire Sales Engineer, Jack Crawford. “No one plans to be the victim of vandalism, and for us the focus needed to be on working with our client to ensure further disruption was kept to a minimum for the end user. Without heating to their pool and building, their whole business was impacted, so prompt delivery and install were key.
