Energetic sobriety is one of the main themes of this fall. The government specifically presented this Thursday a plan aimed at achieving energy savings of 10% this winter. Many establishments, communities and facilities have already taken steps.

This is the case, for example, of AquaNova America, where it was decided to lower the water temperature in the pools. The sports pool thus increases to + 27.5 ° C, compared to the previous + 29 ° C, the leisure pool at + 29 ° C instead of + 30 ° C, and the temperature of the bathing pool decreases by 1 ° C to be now heated to + 31 ° C. And depending on how the situation evolves, minor adjustments may be made in the future.

At the same time, the water temperature in the washbasins also drops and all lighting switches to LEDs. “Today we have 80% of LEDs, soon it will be 100%” specifies Fabien Lacroix, Deputy Director of the Déodatien water park. The latter adds that “to save energy, we adapt and modify many processes. Let’s think, for example, of the technical emptying of swimming pools, or the functioning of hammams and saunas. We also encourage users to book their hammam and sauna sessions in advance, online or at the reception, as well as group sessions. This allows us to organize ourselves better upstream. “
