West U Rec Center Pool Closed Until Further Notice

April 26, 2010

The West University Place Recreation Center pool is closed until further notice because of mechanical issues.

The pool started having unforeseen issues on Saturday when the pump went down and the filter went into a different cycle, Recreation Manager Brittany Bakes said.

“We don’t know [what is wrong],” she said. “We’re looking into it.”

The recreation center has a year warranty on the pool, but the pool hasn’t reached substantial completion yet. The architects and the pool company are working on the problems, Bakes said.

“It’s costing us down time right now,” she said. “We’re not able to accommodate memberships and we’ve only been open two weeks.”

Bakes said she doesn’t know if the pool will be fixed later today or in the next few days.

Recreation members can use the UT pool, 7779 Knight Road, with proof of West U Rec Center membership and a $3 fee.

Call 713-662-7420 for a status update on the pool.
