At the top of the Energy Performance league table, due to both pools at the centre being closed from Monday 28th April for a period of approximately 4 to 10 weeks; carrying out repairs to pipework and general maintenance work.

It looks like the low but constant gas consumption has stopped recently. Presumably this is due to the end of the heating season. So it begs the question, why was the consumption constant?

Just a thought - if it was heating the pool, wouldn't there be a low level fairly constant load to keep a large body of water to a certain temperature? As @patep003 said, they closed down for maintenance (not sure why it's 3rd June not 28th May, but maybe that's just a delay). In normal operationI'd expect a fairly constant load compensating evaporation from the pool - in the order of 10s of kW in addition to the building space heat load. I guess the constant load would disappear when the building is shut for maintenance.
N.B. My thoughts on a formula for this available on request

Hi Snapey, can I have that formula you thinking about for this, especially if it has to do with the electricity consumption as I am studying its baseload for dissertation purposes

Hi @ibrokola - it's for gas consumption (heating) - just the physics of how much evaporation you get from a body of water at a certain temperature and the energy needed to maintain the pool at that temperature. Do you still want to go into it?
