Splash Landing to reopen Thursday; Moline hosts movie in the park on Friday | Local News

Splash Landing to reopen Thursday

Splash Landing Aquatic Center in Bettendorf will re-open Thursday as the issue that caused the problem is fixed.

Bettendorf Director of Culture and Recreation said there was an issue with the paint that caused the pool to be closed May 30. The pool will be reopen for normal summer hours.

Brock Aunan of W.F. Scott Decorating said in an email to the Times on Tuesday that the issue was a maintenance problem. 

Aunan said the Sherwin Williams paint rep has twice explained to the city that the chalking is a normal process with epoxy paints exposed to the elements. The rep does not believe there is any problem with the paint.

Because of this inherent chalking, Aunon said, the pool should be thoroughly cleaned every year.

“We provided four guys working all day on Friday performing normal cleaning consisting of scrubbing with an over the counter cleaner and pressure wash rinse,” Aunon said. “We went over the pool walls and floors twice. I can’t speak as to what the City of Bettendorf’s pre-opening cleaning procedures consist of.”
