The use of the pool is significnatly impacted due to very low water temperatures. The local swimming club struggles to keep children swimming due to the cold water, resulting in cramps and head aches. Regional swimming events, school carnivals, SAPSSA & Vac Swim can struggle with enrolments. Elderly pool users struggle to enjoy the remedial effect of swimming and general community use decreases during the cooler months of Nov, Dec, Mar and April. This wonderful town asset could be used for many more months in the year with an improvement in the water temperature.

I would really love to see the Penola pool heated. I would join the swimming club immediately if water temps were better.

Interesting: Heated pool sounds a wonderful idea. However does this mean our rates go up to maintain the heating? Also if the pool season were to be extended who would be covering the additional cost?

Heating the Penola would allow the community to make use off the pool all year round for young old and rehabilitation purposes.
