Balclutha Centennial Swimming Pool Annual Closedown

 

The Balclutha Centennial Swimming Pool will close for four weeks from tomorrow (Wednesday 6 August 2014) for annual maintenance to address issues with pool water temperature variability.

 

Clutha District Council Corporate Services Manager Alan Dickson said that the Balclutha Pool usually closed for a period of two to three weeks each winter to allow for general maintenance and cleaning.

 

Mr Dickson said this yearís closedown would be slightly longer so that Council could also address issues with pool water temperature variability.

 

This would include replacing plastic heat exchange pipes with larger stainless steel pipes, installation of a new flow meter, and a thorough clean and inspection of the pool boiler.

 

The details of the proposed work had been discussed with the independent consultant who reviewed the poolís water filtration and heating system earlier this year. The consultant had confirmed the general extent and details of the proposed work.

 

Mr Dickson said that water loss which was observed at the pool in late June had not seemed to occur in the same way since. The pool temperature has remained stable since then.

 

Mr Dickson said that given the water loss hadnít occurred in the same way since June, Council did not plan to undertake leak testing at this stage. It would continue to monitor the rate of water use, and inspect the poolís filter and balance tank valves during the shutdown to make sure they were all closing properly.

 

At this stage, the Pool will be closed from Wednesday 6 August and reopen on Wednesday 3 September. The pool may reopen earlier if progress is good. Any updates will be communicated to the public via the media, Council website, and Balclutha Centennial Pool facebook page.
