Indoor pools reopen at Aquazone

Indoor pools reopen at Aquazone
August 20, 2019

Three indoor pools at AquaZone in the Victorian community of Warrnambool have reopened following the replacement of the aquatic centre’s ageing climate control and water treatment systems.

The new systems have created a better atmosphere within the pool hall while the new water treatment system uses liquid chlorine and UV lamps instead of chlorine gas to sanitise the pools and is a safer system for AquaZone staff to operate.

Announcing the reopening, Warrnambool Mayor Tony Herbert stated "this is a great outcome for regular pool users and for those having swimming lessons.

“Council would like to thank all of our loyal customers for their patience during this major upgrade.”

The deck surrounding the pools has a new anti-slip treatment that not only improves safety but has brightened the indoor space.

The climate control system features more energy-efficient boilers linked to a computerised system that allows the boilers to switch on and off automatically to maintain the hall temperature.

A new fabric ducting system helps better control humidity. This system is also easier to maintain as sections can be unzipped and removed for repairs or replacement.

As AquaZone’s boilers came back online the smaller pools - used for junior swimming classes - were heated as a first priority with the 25 metre pool brought up to its regular temperature this week.
