Why Do We Need Annual Maintenance?

Annual maintenance is needed to meet public safety standards and service expectations. The pool is open to the public 16 hours per day, every day, and the systems run continuously. Annual maintenance closures allow the City to perform work that cannot be completed while the facility is in use. These closures are essential for extending the life of the City’s assets, reducing the likelihood of program interruptions due to mechanical failure and ensuring a safe environment for all staff and patrons.
