AquaZone set for upgrade

News Article Date: 
Thursday, 23 May 2019

Taking a swim at AquaZone is to become a better experience with new air handling and water treatment systems to be installed at the aquatic and fitness centre.

Work will start on the $985,000 upgrade from July 1 and will take up to seven weeks to complete.

During the works the 25m, program and leisure pools will be emptied and the aquatics area closed.

“This project is going to result in a better indoor pool environment and a safer water treatment operation,” Warrnambool City Council Chief Executive Officer Peter Schneider said.

“We know that AquaZone is a valued community asset used by large numbers of people and it’s important that we invest in the centre to ensure it meets the community’s expectations,” Mr Schneider said.

“Moving from a gas to a liquid chlorine system is safer for patrons and also staff operating the system.”

AquaZone Manager Ray Smith said the gymnasium, crèche and group fitness classes would continue to operate as normal during the upgrade.

“All our prepaid memberships and swim school enrolments will be automatically suspended over the period,” Mr Smith said.

“Direct debit fees will decrease to reflect the closure.

“Additional time will be added to the end of upfront memberships to offset the time lost.

“The expiry date of all swimming multi passes will also be extended to reflect the time lost during the closure.

“No changes will be made to gold, gym or fitness memberships, however additional dry area fitness programs will be scheduled for the period. Gold, Gym and Fitness members will also have the option to suspend their membership over the period.”

The option to cancel memberships or visit passes is also available.

“I encourage anyone with any queries to consult the customer service staff at AquaZone,” Mr Smith said.
