Fluidra, the global leader in equipment and connected solutions in the pool and wellness sector, was responsible for building two temporary pools for the European Aquatics Championships run by the European Swimming League (LEN) that will be held in Rome between 11 and 21 August 2022.

Both of the pools have premium location in the iconic area of the Foro Italico. The first measures 31 x 21 x 3 meters, and will be used for the synchronized swimming competition. The second, sized 17 x 17 x 6 meters, is completely built using Skypool panels, and will be used for the high diving competition.

The two pools, by the brands AstralPool and Zodiac, have been built and tested at Inquide's production plant located in Polinyà (Barcelona). In addition to building these pools, Fluidra also replaced the filtration system of the Olympic pool that was built in the Foro Italico in 1936. This pool was fitted with an AstralPool filtration system by Fluidra following its latest upgrade.
