The St. Davids pool, located at St. Davids Lions Park, was closed last Saturday in order to repair the leak. As the town staff was preparing the pool for the season, they noticed the liner of the pool was leaking, said Victoria Steele, the town’s community engagement co-ordinator.
“The pool water needed to be lowered in order to complete the work. Filling the pool was delayed to fix the leak and, therefore, adding chemicals to the water was delayed,” Steele said in an email to The Lake Report. “As all pool chemicals work, they need time to dissipate in the water before it’s safe to swim, which is why the pool was closed on Saturday.”
The pool was re-opened the following Sunday morning.
