Pools were both drained on Friday 3rd August, starting at 5pm. Ironically for a leaking pool, it took until 8am Saturday to finally pump out all the water and leave it dry for the glass fibre work to begin. A long night.
The good news is that pool expert, Steve Grinyer, tracked down the leak in the small pool to the tiling around the sump.
Saturday has been spent grinding off the previous floor and walls of the main pool, which had started to flake and discolour. The plan is that by Wednesday the preparations will be complete and the new surface can be started. It’s going to be cream with blue lines.
Its very quiet here without any swimmers; quite spooky with no water, pumps or fans. Roll on September 1st.
