Comment on Town pool problems: No end in sight by Pete.

I was surprised to hear on ABC radio today that the defective pool tiling was originally installed only for aesthetic reasons and that a painted surface is perfectly adequate and will allow at least an interim re-opening by the end of the month.
Would be interesting to know why tiles were chosen in the first place, how much extra they added to the price, and what the councils intentions are for the pool surfacing going forward.
