Summer Pool Shutdown F.A.Q.

Why is the pool shut down for 6 weeks rather than the typical 3 weeks?

  • Additional maintenance time is required to reinforce the hot tub drains (similar work that was done to the Leisure Pool drains last Fall) and to inspect and do any required repair work on the Main Pool drains.

 What is being done?

  • The existing fibreglass drains will be taken out and new drains made of concrete will be installed.

Why does this work need to be done?

  • This is precautionary work that is being undertaken during normal pool down time to avoid a possible leakage failure during peak times.

 Weren’t other solutions available?

  • All remediation options were thoroughly investigated to ensure the best solution for the Community Centre.

 How much will this cost taxpayers?

  • The work will be completed by the original pool design and construction team at no cost to the City.

Who is doing the work?

  • The original contractors have been called in to complete the work.

 Wasn’t the pool just built – shouldn’t this be fixed?

  • The problem was not discovered until after the pool was completed and it is being fixed at no cost  to the City and with the least possible inconvenience to the public.

 What about the Fitness Room?

  • The Fitness Room remains open and ready to serve customers (see hours listed above or schedule posted below).

 I have a year-long/monthly pass for the pool. What are you going to do for me?

  • Pro-rated refunds or credits on accounts are available.
