AFTER being closed for almost a year due to a number of leaks and various other deficiencies to the building, Torrevieja’s municipal swimming pool is expected to open within days.
According to Councillor Víctor Ferrández, there should be an imminent announcement as to the official reopening day once the pool has been completely refilled and all the required health and safety tests have been carried out.
They started to refill the pool last Friday afternoon and is taking longer than normal so all the locations where leaks were discovered could be checked and double checked. The water heating system was also thoroughly examined.
Once the pool is full, the levels of the chemicals will also be checked and then subject to approval of the health authorities. After everything has been authorised, a formal opening date can be announced.
Councillor Ferrández said that before the pool is open for customers again, it’s important to check each step of the process so the municipality can once again offer a quality of service with no associated problems.
