How is the ceiling of an indoor swimming pool accessed, if repairs need to be done to anything up there?
This is an indoor pool at a K-12 public school district. I need to take this speaker down and repair it. It is located over an irregular sloping floor between the shallow and deep end.
The ceiling lights can be replaced by the school district maintenance staff, because they are over the pool deck around the sides, so there is room to drive a vertical ceiling lift up to the side of the pool and get up there. However they don't have a way to access the middle of the ceiling out over the water.
This pool is drained every August for cleaning before the next school year begins in September, so there is a time of the year when the floor would be exposed without water.
This pool has a shallow end and a deep end, with a ramp that slopes down from the shallow to the deep, with a diving board off to the side, and so the slope itself is uneven from left to right across the slope.
Apparently some sort of platform is needed to level the slope so that a ladder or scaffolding could be utilized on top of it.
Also some sort of bracing is needed to keep the platform from sliding down the slope. The only thing I can think of, would be a long pole from the structure to the wall of the deep end.
A one-time-use wooden frame structure could be built, but it would be better if the platform could be adjusted and reused in different locations across the uneven pool floor.
Is there any sort of product or device that already exists, that is capable of doing this job?
