Versailles YMCA's Pool Rennovations are Complete!

The YMCA of Darke County is excited to announce that pool renovations at the Versailles Branch are complete and the pool is open!

These enhancements to the swimming pool, slide and hot tub were made possible with generous support from the community, as well as great teamwork from the Versailles Branch staff.

Prior to the month-long renovations, the ceiling and slide were deteriorating with rust. The pool’s aging filtration system was allowing sand to wash into the pool. The pool’s recirculation pump was struggling to circulate 65,000 gallons of water. The water temperature fluctuated week after week.

The pool was drained to start the project, and then the entire pool area, including ceiling, water slide frame, steps, and hot tub, was pressure washed. The ceiling then received fresh coats of primer and paint. In addition to the ceiling’s improvement, the framing of the slide was welded and repaired before repainting. The hot tub’s scratched fiberglass surface was sanded, primed and painted. The pool walls and floor were pressure washed, and painted.

The filtration system for the pool & hot tub, the recirculation pump for the pool, and the pool heater were all replaced or repaired. The pool heater’s burners were replaced, as well.

The week of June 29 – July 3, the swimming pool at the Versailles Branch will be open for all members and guests to use during the facility’s operation hours. Come in and enjoy the renovated area, and enjoy a welcoming and enhanced swimming experience! July classes begin on July 6. Please see our pool schedule at www.ymcadarkecounty.org for open swim times.

The Versailles Branch offers group swim lessons for all ages, private and semi-private swim lessons, and group exercise classes including Aqua Power, Aqua Motion, Aqua Boot Camp, Aqua Zumba and SilverSplash. The swimming pool is also a great spot for a pool party, so come join us at the Y!
