400,000 euros to repair the small aquapolis pond in Limoges

A technical problem blocked the removable bottom of the 25-meter basin of the Limoges aquapolis. Only one company in the world is capable of carrying out the repairs.

In fact, the Limoges aquapolis center didn’t really need this big technical problem in its 25-meter pond. The latter has a removable bottom that ranges from 90 cm to 5 meters deep.

On October 25, 2021, the system collapsed. During the last two months, the depth has been 1.8 m on one side and 3 m on the other.

Under these conditions, it is impossible to use the equipment for aquagym classes and school swimming. Now they take place in the aquatic pool and part of the 50 m pool.

Athletes who practice diving are the most affected by this failure. The small basin of the aquapolis is the only one in Haute-Vienne in which it was possible to descend to a depth of 5 m.

To go further, they must go to Montluçon, or to Civaux, very close to Poitiers. An agreement has been reached with the management of aquapolis so that they can bathe in the large pool, where the depth does not exceed 2 m.

Only one company in the world is capable of repairing the small Limoges basin. It is based in Germany and, unfortunately, its response times are very long.

To understand where the fault comes from, it will be necessary to disassemble the system. The operation could take place in February. The problem is, the repair won’t take place for several months.

The French Swimming Championships will take place from April 5 to 10, 2021 in Limoges. The small pool can be used whatever happens to allow competitors to warm up and recover.

But the removable fund will not be repaired on this date.

The financial stakes are high. The work is estimated at 400,000 euros.
