Perth Leisure Pool will undergo a £150,000 refurbishment that will see new flume features, a swipe entry system, a sauna cabin replacement and a cafe makeover.
The building will close its doors to the public for a week, from October 30 until November 5, for the maintenance works which will also see pool surround resurfacing, repairs to the children’s area flooring and pool plant repair and refurbishment.
A spokeswoman for Live Active Leisure (LAL) said the revamp of the building will also include self-service cashless kiosks and improved parking access with the introduction of parking charges. The improvements to the flumes will include speed timers and a light and sound system.
Leisure pool members can use swimming pools at Kinross, Blairgowrie or Crieff during the closure of Perth Leisure Pool. Alternatives for gym users include Live Active Rodney or North Inch Campus in Perth.
The LAL spokeswoman said: “As with any ageing building, Perth Leisure Pool requires ongoing maintenance works in order to provide a continued safe and reliable operation and to ensure the venue remains attractive to customers.
“These works include such essential items as pool surround resurfacing, Monkey Jungle repairs and maintenance to the changing cubicles and lockers. The whole of Perth Leisure Pool will close from October 30 to November 5 inclusive, which enables the various and complex works to be undertaken over a short and focused period.”
She added: “Whilst carrying out the essential maintenance work, the opportunity will be taken to carry out enhancements to the flumes and the upgrading of facility lighting in areas as the reception area. The introduction of new kiosks and entry arrangements that will enhance the customer experience and bring a new and attractive focus to the venue.”
Perth Leisure Pool is scheduled to reopen at 6.30am on November 6.
