31 Oct Seattle Parks Department discovered water loss from the South West Seattle Pool
In Seattle, during a routine water conservation maintenance test for the city’s public parks and facilities, the Seattle Parks Department discovered water loss from the South West Seattle Pool. This 30+ year old, Olympic size pool water loss seemed to becoming from its drain and recycling system. Seattle Parks Department video inspected the drain system and found a crack in a 8” PVC pipe, that was 15 foot deep beneath the pools concrete deck.

Excavating would only add to the revenue lost from the closing of the pool. After several inspections with contractors only offer excavation methods the Superintendent of SPD research the web. Next, the company Insta-Pipe, a trenchless contractor that installs cured-in-place-pipe lining visited the pool and watched the video inspection showing the crack in the drain pipe. The Seattle Parks Department faces lit up when Insta-Pipe told them that the liner being installed to reline the drain and would fix this leaky drain pipe.
