It became evident towards the end of last pool season that the Canowindra pool has been leaking.

The Canowindra Pool has been leaking and will require $50,000 in repairs.

An inspection has confirmed that approximately 35 metres of expansion joints in the pool had failed, Cabonne Shire Councillors were told yesterday.

The leak was confirmed by divers who entered the pool and completed dye testing over the top of all of the expansion joints.

Repair works will involve emptying the pool, removing tiles either side of the failed joint, removal of a one hundred and sixty millimetre wide section of concrete slab centred over the expansion joint forty millimetres deep, the application of an adhesive, the placing of a rubber mat material, application of a bonded flexible material up to the original height and then relaying the tiles.

The repair is expected to be permanent.
