A swimming pool has been closed temporarily due to a problem with a chemical pump.

Splash Pool in Rushden has been closed to swimmers since Saturday due to a technical issue with the pump.

However, a spokesman for East Northamptonshire Council said a new part has been ordered and it is hoped that this will be installed tomorrow (Tuesday) so the pool can re-open tomorrow afternoon.

Aspirations Wellbeing, which manages the pool on behalf of the council, tweeted on Saturday to say the pool would be closed until further notice.

It has been keeping customers updated on the closure on Facebook and Twitter, and tweeted today: “We apologise for any inconvenience.”

Anyone wishing to check if the pool has re-opened for their next visit can call 01933 410505.
