Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center pool closed temporarily for repairs

Posted by on Friday, April 14, 2017 in News.

4/19/17 Update:

Note to Our Members: As you know, we are diligently working to repair the VRWC Aquatic Center. While the swimming pool is closed, our members will be allowed to use the 25-meter, 5-lane warm-water pool located at the Vanderbilt Dayani Center (1500 Medical Center Dr., Nashville). Members can access the Dayani facility for lap swimming and general aquatic exercise Monday-Friday, from 12 noon-3 p.m.  VRWC members will be required to complete a guest consent form on your first visit.  No organized classes or flip turns are permitted.  We greatly appreciate our Dayani friends and associates for making their facility available to our members.

 

The natatorium at Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center will remain closed longer than expected due to a substantial repair project to the pool.

 

After a thorough inspection earlier this week identified more improvements needed to the complex, Recreation and Wellness officials said the natatorium will be closed at least another week, if not more.

 

“We apologize for any inconvenience this closure has caused our members, but the total repair effort is simply greater than we initially suspected,” Recreation and Wellness Center Director Kenny Moore said. “We are committed to reopening our natatorium as soon as possible.”

 

Recreation and Wellness officials said the project includes installation of two new water pumps, an overhaul of the electrical system serving both pumps, and replacement of the auto fill system.

 

The pool closed April 9 when a malfunction caused significant damage to filtration and circulation systems.

 

Recreation and Wellness members are asked to direct any questions or concerns to vrwcmembership@vanderbilt.edu.
