The Otumoetai Pool is currently closed due to a broken pump causing the temperature to drop below the required degree.
Tauranga City Council says the pool is expected to be closed until at least Tuesday while a new bore recharge pump is sourced and installed after the other one was destroyed when it became full of little stones.
A fault in the bore pump was reported on Friday causing the pool to continue to decrease in temperature.
Contractors pulled the pump from underground on Saturday where it was discovered it had become full of stones breaking the pump shaft and destroying the pump unit.
TCC advises the best possible outcome is for the pools to reopen on Tuesday, or Wednesday.
Greerton Aquatic Centre will also be closed next month while scheduled maintenance is undertaken.
The centre on Kiteroa Street will close from September 17 to October 12 for pool re-painting and a facility “refresh”.
Greerton pool members will be able to use their memberships at Otumoetai pool and Baywave in the meantime.
Tauranga City Council advises that the Clubfit facilities will remain open throughout this period.
Meanwhile Mount Hot Pools is currently undergoing re-roofing.
TCC reports these works will be completed by October 2012, depending on the weather.
