A LEAK in the refurbished outdoor 50m pool at Bayswater Waves has been rectified after an urgent pipe inspection yesterday.

The refurbished pool was closed until 9am yesterday for the inspection, in order to meet compliance standards set out in the Aquatic Industries’ Code of Practice.

This comes after the pool was reopened on January 31, following nine months of construction.

Bayswater Mayor Dan Bull said the minor issue was immediately identified and rectified.

“Prior to the reopening of the 50m outdoor pool at Bayswater Waves a range of inspections, water sampling and pressure testing were conducted to ensure it was fully compliant,” he said.

“During routine operations a leak was detected that resulted from uncapped section of old pipework.”
