4:20PM: The Moss Vale War Memorial Aquatic Centre multi-function pool has reopened. 

2:21PM: Belgravia Leisure centre manager James Borbone said the pool is closed due to an electrical issue. 

“There was an electrical issue in the plant room which we subsequently had to fix. We are working hard to get the chemical balance back within department regulations so everyone can come and swim safely,” he said. 

UPDATE: A spokesman from the pool said they were “working hard to fix the issue” and should have it back in working order “within the next hour”. 

EARLIER: The multi-function pool at the Moss Vale War Memorial Aquatic Centre will be closed until further notice. 

The 25-metre lap pool will remain open “for now.” 

“We regret to announce that we have had to close the multi-function pool until further notice,” a Facebook post said. 

“The 25-metre lap pool remains open for the time being, however this is dependent on how quickly we can fix the issue. The 25-metre pool may also need to close.”

“We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience on such a hot day, we are working hard to fix the issue as quickly as we can.”
