Salt water pool reopens

The St Clair Hot Salt Water Pool reopened this morning, returning to normal operating hours.

An electical fault which caused damage to pipes saw the pool close on Tuesday. It opened briefly yesterday, but had to close when a mechanical problem, related to the earlier fault, was discovered.

Dunedin City Council Parks and Recreation Planning Manager Jendi Paterson said all repair work is complete.

"The filtration and pool treatment is now functioning properly and the pool temperature is rising back up towards the normal 28degC," she said.
