Day two of the refit started dramatically with water bursting through the liner from below. Drilling through the black osmosis spots to kill the menace brought a shocking release of water that had seeped through the liner over the years. First thoughts were to create a release for the water but the pool engineers quickly switched tack and opted to lift the whole liner.
A bold and correct decision, but a tough Sunday in the heat. The cavalry arrived in the form of Luke and Jack and by the end of the day the pool was cleared of glass fibre, Despite 44 years of hurt, the concrete base was in great shape and within a couple of days will be ready to receive a brand new coat of many colours.
In the meantime, the lads are planning a temporary skateboard park.
