Almuñécar’s indoor swimming pool will be reopening this week, after months of being closed, both because of the pandemic and structural faults.
Councillor for Sport, Luis Aragón, explained that they had discovered that the pool had been losing water and after finding leaks in its structure had to employ a specialist company to repair it, costing 40,000 euros.
Furthermore, the pool-dehumidifier system in the 20-year-old indoor pool had to be replaced, costing a further 70,000 euros.
“We couldn’t allow a situation where we lost 75 cubic metres of water, so we took advantage of the fact that normally the pool has little use during the summer in order to put it right,” explained Councillor Aragón.
The pool will first be opened to normal bathing and then on the 15th groups can begin but under very restrictive norms aimed at preventing crowding at given times.
The facilities will be open for recreational swimming and classes with monitors from 09.00h to 13.00h from Monday to Friday, and in the afternoons from 16.00h to 22.00h. On Saturdays it will be mornings only from 10,00h to 13.00h. As no hours were given for Sunday, we can take it that the installations will be closed on that day of that week.
