Pool Resurfacing Progress

Our pool is done… our swimmers are back in the water and we are super excited about the 2015 season… the 50th anniversary of our club and the 45th anniversary of our team.

A huge thank you to everyone who supported our campaign to fund the pool and those whom worked tirelessly to make the project the huge success it is.

Everything happened pretty quickly over the past couple of days… the plaster went in and then the water went it!!!!  Not quite ready to get into it yet (permits and final cleaning), but we are waiting for that day in early April!!!  Congratulations to our entire community!

Not it is starting to look like a pool again (ok, not really… but it is getting closer!!!)

The tiling is pretty much done and it is beginning to look like a pool we could actually race in again.  (Feb 27th)

The tiling is starting… the first row is always the most important!  Here’s a quick look!

Did you know that coping is a thing, and no just what we do to get through the week?  Well, it is and the coping is being install and the last step before the tiles go in!

A couple of very busy weeks at the pool… the pictures are less than stunning, but know that we’ve seen huge updates in the plumbing, the overall structure of the pool, and things are about ready to start moving VERY fast!  Here’s a picture from Thursday (Feb 19)… expect some great changes over the next week (tiles, water, etc!!!)

Ready to tiles, grout and water!  Bring it on!  (Feb 19th)

We had a great kick-off party on Feb 7th and we shared the progress…  this week, the plumbing will be completed after fixing the final leaks.

Then the next week, the tiling will happen – and that will only take four-days!  Then we have 30-hours to get 190,000 gallons of water in there!

We are getting close…
