CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Blodgett Pool, home of Harvard men's and women's swimming and diving and water polo teams, is undergoing renovations this summer. Aside from regular upkeep, Blodgett is getting an overhaul of the entire pool shell.
After draining the pool, crews at Harvard have cleaned and regrouted the base and deck and repaired and re-tiled sections of the pool walls. The soft lines and the break lines in each section of the pool have been regrouted as well, while 10 new fiberglass filters have been installed. Along with the maintenance, new line anchors and pool gutters have been installed as well.
Outside the pool, the locker rooms have been upgraded with regrouted tile and the installation of new shower heads and plumbing.
