The Downers Grove Swim and Racquet Club, constructed in the early 1950’s, their main pool which holds approximately 190,000 gallons of water. The pool was leaking thousands of gallons per day. One of the leaks was coming from the main drain system, a 40 foot long, 10 inch ductile iron drain line under 5 FEET of concrete.
This water leak was costing them thousands of dollars in water and chemicals every year. The water level in the pool would drop as much as four inches overnight. The club president Gordon B. contacted Ben Franklin Plumbing of Northern Illinois to fix the problem with their Perma-Liner pipeline system.
The Cortland, Il. based Ben Franklin Plumbing contacted Perma-Liner Corporate direct and flew out representatives to help with this high-profile project. They had only one chance to get it right otherwise they would be jackhammering up the bottom of the pool.
“Our staff successfully installed over 40 feet of the Perma-Liner midline lining product and fixed the pool without having to tear it up,” said Mark Carpenter, of Ben Franklin Plumbing of Northern Illinois, “saving the club not only lots of money, but a whole summer of swimming too!”
