FR 2 12 Water Temperature and movement,Water temperature shall be 25 to 28.
During competition the water in the pool must be at a constant level with no. appreciable movement, In order to keep the water level preserve the transparency of water and take into. consideration the health regulations in force in most countries inflow and outflow has. to be regulated as follows,220 to 250 m3 h for 50 00 m pools. 150 to 180 m3 h for 33 33 m pools,120 to 150 m3 h for 25 00 m pools. At these turnover rates the water distribution has to be such that no appreciable. current or turbulence is created, Appreciable current is defined as water movement that can move a floating. basketball filled with 6 liters of water to obtain the right buoyancy in one direction for. more than 1 25m in 60 seconds, The practical way to test this is to install two floating lines crosswise in a swim lane.
to obtain a square with 2 5m size ref Image 1 and then to leave the basketball in. the central point of the square If the ball does not touch any of the four lane ropes. within 60 seconds the turbulence test is successful. Test should be repeated in lanes 1 3 6 8 on two sides at 5m from each headwall. FR 2 13 Lighting, Light intensity over starting platforms and turning ends shall not be less than 600 lux. Version 06 10 2017 6,FACILITIES RULES 2017 2021,Valid as of 22 September 2017.

Length 46 0 metres for 50 metre long pools,21 0 metres for 25 metre long pools. Each lane line shall end 2 0 metres from the end wall of the pool with a distinctive. cross line 1 0 metre long and of the same width as the lane line Target lines shall be. placed on the end walls or on the touch panels in the centre of each lane of the same. width as the lane lines, They shall extend without interruption from the deck edge curb to the floor of the.
pool to a maximum of 3 metres A cross line 0 5 metre long shall be placed 0 3 metre. below the water surface measured to the centre point of the cross line. For 50m pools constructed after 1 January 2006 cross lines 0 5 metre long shall be. placed at the 15 metre mark from each end of the pool After October 2013 this shall. be measured from the end wall to the centre point of the cross line. See Swimming Diagrams SW 1 SW 6 SW 7,FR 2 15 Bulkheads. When a bulkhead serves as an end wall it must extend the full width of the course and present a. solid smooth non slippery stable vertical surface on which touch pads may be mounted extending. not less than 0 8m below and 0 3m above the surface of the water and must be free of hazardous. openings above or below the waterline which may be penetrated by a swimmer s hands feet toes. or fingers A bulkhead must be of a design that provides for the free movement of officials along its. length without such movement creating any appreciable current or water turbulence.
