Pool Progress Report
Work on the pool continues, and critical supply issues remain a concern. Underground inspection and steel installation will continue this week.
The electrical service transfer has been completed, so the panel has been moved into the pool mechanical room, paving the way for a concrete foundation to be poured. Construction workers will pour the slab this week.
The 4-inch gas line to accommodate the pool heater has arrived and is scheduled for installation this week.
Re-roofing is complete up to the tie-in of the new structure that holds the pool equipment.
The application of gunite is expected to start once the rebar is installed.
The schedule is subject to change due to COVID-related supply disruptions of all sorts, including pool equipment and materials. Shipping delays, as experienced with other projects in Leisure World, may alter construction timelines.
The pool has been closed since November 2019, when potentially catastrophic defects were uncovered in the 1960s-era facility.
The project that started as a simple remodel soon morphed into a full-blown reconstruction.
The project coincided with the coronavirus epidemic, which has delayed construction, parts procurement and other facets of the job.
The facility will have a pool with five swimming lanes, a 30-by-30-foot activity area with a volleyball net, a 9-by-25-foot spa, new locker rooms and a lounge area.
