Projects Include Pools for Two New YMCA Facilities in Iowa and Illinois
A busy year for St. Louis-based Capri Pools & Aquatics is concluding with the completion of three pools, including two for new YMCA facilities in Iowa and Illinois.
In Marion, Ia. near Cedar Rapids, Capri installed a six-lane swimming pool, a leisure pool and hot tub for new YMCA at 3740 Irish Dr, The leisure pool includes a number of fun features for children, including a splash pad, waterfall, bubble-generating cannonball splash, spray features and pool toys. Capri worked with the project’s mechanical team to install a Defender pool filter which saves on space and water with a more efficient filtration system at no additional cost to the YMCA.

In Springfield Ill., Capri completed an eight-lane lap pool for the new downtown YMCA at 601 North 4th Street. The pool depth ranges from four- to nine-feet deep. In addition, Capri installed a zero-entry leisure with a maximum depth of three-and-a-half feet. The new facility is part of the YMCA of Springfield. Learn more at www.springfieldymca.org.
The final year-end project for Capri was a two-lane therapy pool as part of a number of improvements to Lutheran Hillside Village, a continuing care retirement community in Peoria, Ill.
