Pool closed Wednesday

The Glenwood Hot Springs Pool will be closed for the day on Wednesday, May 8, for repairs and maintenance.

Mays Construction Specialties will assist in the pool maintenance and repair using a procedure known as HPI. This procedure involves the ejection of a hydroactive polyurethane grout into the joints and any existing cracks in the concrete lining of the hot springs pool. The grout acts as a gasket to help eliminate water seepage and loss from the pool. It is very effective for several reasons; the water actually acts as a catalyst to activate the grout, thus making repairs possible in a timely manner. Also the grout holds up very well with the presence of minerals such as the ones naturally present in the hot spring water (sodium chloride, potassium sulfide, calcium bicarbonate). The polyurethane grout (resin) forms a gasket that has the ability to move, expand, contract; it forms what is known as a tenacious bond.

Within the 24-hour period that the pool is closed, Mays Construction Specialties Inc. will spend approximately an eight-hour shift. This allows for cleaning and refilling of the pool, which will actually accommodate the HPI process as well as the pool’s schedule.

Mays Construction Specialties Inc. is located in Grand Junction Colorado. It is a division of Mays Concrete, a well-established Western Slope company. For more information, contact Dwain Cook, project manager for Hot Springs pool work, at 970-245-0834.
