“The Inflatable Pool”

Life Saving Victoria (LSV) has designed and built an inflatable pool for use in open waterways.

The Inflatable Pool is a 6-lane by 25-metre pool with a mesh bottom, that sits on open water. It is intended to be portable and adaptable to a variety of open waterways including inland waterways (rivers, lakes) and the beach. LSV want to see more people learning to swim, enjoying the water and being safe in open water ways; and the Inflatable Pool is an innovation being piloted to bridge the gap between swimming at a pool and in open water.

LSV is leading the way in developing innovative and practical solutions for people accessing open waterways safely and Risk Intelligence has supported this important community project through the development of a dynamic Risk Management Framework so that the Inflatable Pool can be used in many and varied locations.
