CORRIMAL heated swimming pool will remain closed until the start of July as improvements are undertaken to the 48-year-old facility.
Wollongong City Council closed the pool in May for scheduled maintenance, which included tile repairs, realigning the water supply pipes and maintenance to pool plant and equipment.
As these works were being carried out, Council uncovered additional critical repairs that would need to be completed to ensure the pools can continue long term operations. This remedial work was identified as the realigned water supply pipes were brought online, and includes repairs to the pools’ balance tank, which is a key component of the water filtration system.
Council anticipate this will see an additional three weeks added to the scheduled closure, provided we get good weather.
A Council spokesperson said it appreciated winter swimmers will be disappointed with this update and thanked them for their patience as work continued to reopen the popular heated pool as soon as possible.
“We will continue to keep swimmers updated as we work through the necessary pool repairs,” the spokesperson said.
