THE sauna at Omagh Leisure Complex has become the latest facility to fall victim to “technical issues” at the council-owned venue.
On Wednesday morning, Fermanagh and Omagh District Council (FODC) confirmed that the sauna had re-opened after being closed for two days because of an “issue” with a heating element.
Last week, FODC blamed a “technical issue” after the main pool at the leisure centre had to be closed for more than four days.
A spokesperson for the local authority told the UH that an issue with a pool valve that resulted in the water level in the main pool being reduced.
And, last month, FODC apologised for any inconvenience being caused to members of the public by the frequent closure of Omagh Leisure Complex’s hot tub.
At the time, the council stated that there had been “some issues” with the hot tub that had been outside of the leisure centre’s control.
Speaking this week, the council spokesperson said, “Omagh Leisure Complex is open seven days per week, welcoming 14,000 customers on a weekly basis, so there will be issues from time-to-time. We endeavour
to resolve any issue as quickly as possible and to minimise inconvenience to our customers. However, the health and safety of our customers is paramount and at times it is necessary withdraw a service temporarily to undertake remedial work.”
The spokesperson added, “We appreciate customers’ patience and understanding during such times.”
