On Monday afternoon, the Streamland pool, built in 1965, was filled with 60,000 gallons of water with the help of the Danville Fire Department. The pool had been emptied previously due to tears and other damages.

“Flex Seal was used to fix the pool, but we’ve never used it before so we don’t really know what the outcome will be,” stated David Cochran, who’s wife, Kristi, is president of Streamland Swim Club. “We’re going to see what happens and go from there”.

Before the Flex Seal was used for some of the repairs, Kristi Cochran said her two sons, Brady and Trevor, worked on the pool. 

“They’ve painted, they pressure washed, and they helped with the wood. They’re hard workers and we’re very proud of them,” she said.

For those who live in the Streamland community, a membership can be purchased for a discounted rate of $255. People outside of the community can purchase a membership to Streamland Swim Club for $295. One membership covers the cost of an entire family. This includes babysitters, who can bring the children in their care for no additional cost.

Streamland Pool is set to open this weekend and will operate Monday — Saturday from11 am. -8 p.m. and Sunday from 1-6 p.m.
