Kin Pool Piping Project

Mar 31, 2016

The Kin Pool in Bowen Park recently underwent some work on the piping system. The original pool circulation piping was at the end of its life and needed to be replaced. Starting in February, crews worked to dig up the piping and replace it with new piping.

The original piping was made up of ACM (Asbestos containing materials) and had to be properly removed and disposed of.  Then the new piping made of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) was installed and pressure tested for leaks. Once that was complete, grounding cables were installed - these help to ground any lightning strikes that may occur - and cement was poured. Crews were lucky to have some dry days to get this project completed in time to prep the pool for the upcoming Nanaimo White Rapids swim season. 

Check out pictures of the project below.
