Hot tub at Panorama gets heavy duty heater

Panorama Recreation Centre's hot tub is running again, after difficulties with heater that wasn't heavy-duty enough

The hot tub at Panorama Recreation Centre will soon be back in action after a short hiatus around Christmas.

When it was last replaced under warranty two years ago, the supplying company, AME Group, assured staff the model they provided would work fine. Turns out it wasn’t “heavy duty enough,” according to facilities manager Ron Rieberger’s report. After this latest break-down, Panorama got a heavier-duty model, at a cost of $9,800.

Panorama plans to re-open the hot tub on Feb. 15.
