EPIC Pool Renovation Information (PDF)

The scope of the EPIC pool renovation was extensive. Major areas of focus for this project were health, safety, and functionality. The competition pool was the most affected area of the entire renovation project.  

The major highlights of the renovation include:

  • Installation of a new, heightened, flush gutter system that will reduce wake and increase water depth.
  • Enlargement of the gutter piping to increase pool circulation and turnover rate.
  • Installment of new bulkheads and starting blocks that will be much safer, faster, and easier to move.
  • A complete renovation of EPIC’s pump room.
  • Re-plumbing return lines for all pools at EPIC.
  • Converting from gas Chlorine to a bleach-based disinfecting system.   

The entire scope of the project will improve the efficiency and circulation of the pool.  These new features will result in better air quality and water purity while creating a better experience for all pool users.

In addition to the pool area, EPIC’s main lobby area is also being renovated. The new lobby space will be more functional and it will enable us to better manage large events and provide better customer service.
