    Port Hardy Pool Update

    January 26, 2024

    February 17, 2024

    The cleaning was completed last night, and the pool began filling today at a rate of approximately 1 inch per hour. We anticipate it will take about 4 days to reach full capacity. The next steps involve the liner contractor on-site for equipment commissioning and staff training from Tuesday to Saturday. Following that, the mechanical contractor is scheduled for commissioning and training in the subsequent week. We are currently awaiting dates for the final inspections and health approvals. Stay tuned for further updates.

    We are still waiting to confirm the pool’s fill date and coordinate the commissioning with all the agencies required. We will keep posting updates as we find out more information. Still looking for lifeguards!

    JANUARY  2024

    We’re thrilled to announce that the pool project is nearing completion! Our two dedicated contractors are working together to wrap up the final stages. The liner installation is almost finished and the mechanical systems are nearly ready to be activated. The synergy between the two is crucial for a seamless operation.

    Anticipating great news, we hope to confirm the pool’s filling date around January 31, with the process expected to take up to 4 days. Following this, thorough testing will be conducted, troubleshooting and potential repairs if needed and then the  regulatory agencies, including engineers, architects, and Island Health, can be called to inspect the systems, barring any issues with the scheduling it is expected to take 2-3 weeks.

    The next step involves training our staff, and we’re still on the lookout for lifeguards. If you know someone interested, please share the application link below. As we gradually open, we’ll operate within our capacity, continually building our staff complement. We understand your eagerness to dive in, and we assure you that we’ll provide swimming opportunities as we progress. Stay tuned for more updates!
