The Ooltewah Swim Club was looking for a permanent enclosure for their large pool near Chattanooga, TN. Prior to their engagement with Libart, the club was only able to provide year-round swimming for its members by using an inflatable dome. The dome was compromised when high winds and unexpected air leaks would interrupt its service and 24/7 monitoring was required to avoid accidents. Libart USA presented an excellent replacement with its free-standing Victory Model enclosure measuring 70′ wide X 110′ long.
After the installation, Wendy Roberts of Ooltewah answered some of our questions about her experience:
- What brought about a need for a pool enclosure?
There was a need for a ‘dependable’ indoor/outdoor pool facility in our area. The inflatable dome we had was not dependable at all!
Before and After
- How did you learn about Libart? And what was the process of figuring out “who to go with”?
After researching options on the internet, the retractable building seemed like the perfect solution. Upon making a few phone calls, it was very apparent that Libart was the way to go because of the excellent customer service and excitement and willingness to help in all aspects of being able to purchase and install a Libart pool enclosure.
- What made you decide to name the pool enclosure?
Naming the enclosure gives it a more professional feel, as well as allowing for instant association in the community of our enclosure. We’ve also been able to have fun, while drawing attention to the pool enclosure, by having a “name the enclosure” contest.
- Will you be keeping the pool open year-round now?
- If so, will you create any new programs to suit your schedule? Will this expand business?
We’ve already been able to start a year round swim team, as well as an aqua zumba class, water aerobics, and have become the home pool to several schools in the area and a triathlon group.
- How impacting will the enclosure be to your facility?
There has already been a tremendous impact in the excitement the enclosure has stirred in the community. And we’re at the beginning of hopefully, an excellent financial impact as well.
