Pool FAQs

The Island Rec Center Pool is the only public lap/training  pool on the Island! In addition, we are home to the Hilton Head High School Seahawks Swim Team, as well as our own swim programs. Please note our pool is mainly used for fitness lap swim. Here are some frequently asked questions about our pool.


What Are The Specs On Your Pool?

  • Our pool is a 8 lane short course pool. It is 25 yards in length.

  • Lesson pool is 3.5ft deep

How is your pool Sanitized?

Our pool is sanitized by using chlorination puck system. We also use a UV filter when the dome is up for added sanitation. We keep our pool between 1-3 ppm of chlorine as regulated by SC DHEC. All commercial pools in the state of SC have to have at least 1 ppm of chlorine to run.

We aim for a water temperature of 82, but it does fluctuate with air temperatures.


Where is your pool located?

Our pool is located right next to the Rec Center, located at 20 Wilborn Rd, Hilton Head (on the public school campus).


Are you open in the winter?

Yes! The pool is under a dome from November to March. Take a look below. The installation and take down take about a week a piece. For this reason our pool is closed for at least 2 weeks (one week in November and one week in March).
