Brand new swimming pool leaks

The fair city of Diksmuide has treated itself to a brand new swimming pool, but the good citizens of what is known as the Flemish Butter Capital are not happy burghers: the spanking new municipal pool is leaky!

Tests carried out by the contractor after the pool was filled with 800,000 litres of water revealed that the pool isn't entirely water-tight.  It took thirty hours to fill, but once this job was completed it became apparent that water was dripping away.

The contractor has now pledged to sort the problem.  After that has been done the swimming pool can be tiled and the pool filled again!
