Two years ago, during the winter months, about $250,000 was spent to resurface the slides, Williamson said.
"We found out actual fiberglass was coming up and didn't want people sliding down," he said.
Mike Ayers, a compliance auditor with the state Division of Labor, said he was at the pool Monday to make sure the repairs had been made. The Division of Labor requires an annual safety inspection, among other things.
"I went and did my inspection and it passed," Ayers said. "We felt it needed to be repaired, and they've done that -- it's safe."
A third-party engineer who initially inspected the slides earlier this year also has given approval for reopening, Ayers noted.
While the slides were being repaired, pool admission prices were reduced. Beginning Wednesday, prices will return to $9 per person, $7 for children between the ages of 5 and 11, and kids ages 4 and younger get in free.
The 30-year-old pool, which is known for creating oceanlike waves, was without its waves last month when a motor that creates the waves stopped working. That also has been repaired, according to pool officials.
