Mangaluru, Feb 15, 2019: Renovation works of Mangala swimming pool of Mangaluru City Corporation (MCC) have already been completed and the upgraded swimming pool will be inaugurated on February 16, Saturday, tomorrow.
The earlier water purification system at Mangala swimming pool was almost 28 years old. Hence hi-tech technology has been introduced. For this very reason, the renovation work had commenced almost 5 months back at a cost of Rs 1 crore.
The new technology, allows water at Mangala swimming pool to be processed through the ozone unit and thus a new technology has been introduced. The earlier water purification system was wholly manual, with the new unit, the work will be automated. Previously, there were 2 pump sets with 10 hp each. Now 4 pumps have been installed. The earlier 3 drum system has been changed with a new technology of 4 drum through which the water is purified. Any impurities and virus in the water will be removed and the purified water is safe for the eyes and skin of the swimmer.
Entry fee increase : The entry fee to the newly renovated Mangala swimming pool with the latest technology has increased. There has been no revision of user fee since the last 5 years, in view of the upgrade an increase is expected.
