The training pool at DG One will be closed for 14 weeks for repairs work
A training pool in a new leisure centre in south west Scotland is to be closed for major repairs just 17 months after it opened to the public.
The shutdown is needed to allow a moving floor and tiling to be replaced at the DG One facility in Dumfries.
The opening hours of the main pool in the building will be extended in an effort to minimise disruption.
The DG One centre opened in May 2008 after a string of delays during its construction process.
The repair programme to the training pool has been timed to coincide with what Dumfries and Galloway Council said is its quietest period.
The 14-week shutdown will begin on 26 October.
Building contractor, Keir Northern, which constructed the multi-million pound leisure centre will carry out the work.
The council said the repairs would be completed without any cost to public purse.
The prolonged closure of the training pool follows unsuccessful attempts to resolve a problem with its moveable floor.
