Thanks to the installation of a new heating system, there is no waiting for summer to arrive at the Deloraine Swimming Pool.

“The previous system relied on consecutive days of sunshine to generate enough heat for the water. This new system is based on pumped heat and ensures the pool remains at a constant 24 degrees,” Mayor Wayne Johnston said.

Installation was timed to coincide with the start of the pool season, which commenced on 1 December.

“The new system provides more reliable heating, even if the weather is a little unpredictable. Swimmers will not have to brace themselves before dipping their toes in the water, nor will they have to wait a few days for the pool to reach a comfortable temperature,” Mayor Johnston said.

This pool season will once again see the Rotary Club of Deloraine running their Learn to Swim and Water Safety program in January, for children over the age of 5 years.

“Providing children who cannot swim with the skills they need to save themselves is invaluable. This is a free initiative and I encourage all parents of younger children to consider enrolling them in the program,” Mayor Johnston said.

Enrolment day will take place at the Deloraine Swimming Pool on Thursday 2 January.

The Pool is open from Tuesday through to Sunday from 11am - 5pm in December and February and from 11am until 6pm during January. The pool is closed on Mondays, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
