The Path To Nirvana – Bowman Heat Exchangers!
The best ideas usually come when we’re relaxed, and whilst relaxing on holiday in Spain, John Barley had a brilliant idea. Why not re-create this same holiday experience back home in the UK… and from that seed of an idea, Nirvana Spa was born!

The Nirvana concept is simple – from the moment you arrive you should feel you’re on holiday. There are 10 leisure and swimming pools within the complex, each offering a unique experience, including a ‘Roman’ themed pool for relaxed swimming; a surf pool; a 51 jet hydrotherapy massage pool; a heated outdoor ‘spa garden pool’; a fitness pool; a Celestial floatation pool, where spring fed natural water combines with Dead Sea mineral salts to create a unique experience; to the Nirvana Pool, with poolside refreshments and crystal clear waters. Outdoors, there’s even mini-spas offering the full hot tub experience in the fresh air.

With so many pools and so much water, keeping them in top condition is the responsibility of Maintenance Director, Neil Phelps and his team of 6 pool engineers. One of the key issues is pool heating, as no matter how spectacular the pool looks, if the water’s cold, no one’s going in!

Bowman heat exchangers are used for heating virtually all of the pools. "We’ve used Bowman heat exchangers for around 20 years now. And they’ve always performed really well, especially on our larger pools," said Neil.

Nirvana’s most recent purchase is a JK190 titanium heat exchanger, one of the largest units in the Bowman range for pools up to 1,230m³ (270,000 gal) capacity.

"We’re using the JK190 on the Celestial Floatation pool," added Neil. "It’s perfect for the pool size and as you can imagine, the Dead Sea mineral salts would soon kill a stainless steel plate heat exchanger.’’

All indoor pools at Nirvana Spa are heated to 35°C, whilst the outdoor pools are run slightly cooler 29°C; the Bowman heat exchangers quickly getting them to the perfect temperature for relaxation. Which is important, because as we now know, our best ideas come when we’re relaxed!
