Many using the pool are disappointed over the one-month long closure during the summer, when more people come there.  What has surprised many is the advancing of the maintenance which is generally taken up every year in August.

According to reports, corporation’s Executive Engineer indicted,  more swimmers come to the pool now because of the scorching heat and the water would have to be changed once in two days. “Otherwise people complain about skin infections and smell. Normally, water is being changed once in a week or twice in a week as the number of swimmers is less. In summer, about 6,000 litres is required to fill the pool. So the corporation decided to take the up maintenance now itself as water scarcity expected to recede in May,” he said.

He said that the tiles of the pool floor would be replaced along with other works done and it would be opened from May 1.
