Main NSC pool now 'fully operational'

DESC confirms boom issues have been fixed

The main swimming pool has at the NSC has been declared fully operational by the Department of Educations, Sport and Culture.

The boom, which is used to divide the fixed depth floor from the movable floating pool floor, was not able to be lowered since the opening of the facility in August due to a fault with the control mechanisms.

However, engineers from the installation company travelled over from Holland this week and worked through the night on Thursday to undertake the repairs and necessary testing.

The leisure pool and flume rides will remain closed off to the public following problems encountered with the flume stairway installation.

The DESC says discussions with the manufacturer and installer in order to resolve this matter are ongoing.
