Roadmap to Re-Open – Now In Stage 2

GREAT NEWS!

On June 30th Ontario moved into Step 2 of the Roadmap to Re-open. https://www.ontario.ca/page/reopening-ontario

Step 2 is one step closer, or 21 days closer, to Step 3 when condos and apartments are allowed to open indoor pools and amenities!

Since the province is scheduled to remain at each step for at least 21 days this gives you enough time to prepare and book your inspection with your local health inspector.

Due to the length of time the indoor pools have been closed an opening form will need to be sent to your local health inspector. These forms should be sent in 14 days prior to your reopening date.

To assist you, we have added a list of local health department contact information in and around the GTA who will provide you the information and forms.

At the same time, you should be contacting our team to book an inspection and ensure your pool is ready to go. aquatics@livnorth.com or rmiddleton@livnorth.com

LIV North Secures the First MYRTHA POOL Installation in the GTA

Aquabella at Bayside, by Tridel, will be our first installation using the Myrtha Stainless steel prefabricated pool technology. Aquabella is one of Toronto’s premier waterfront condominiums located at  257 Queens Quay E, Toronto.  The pool is located on the 7th-floor rooftop terrace overlooking Toronto Islands and the waterfront. 

Myrtha Pools is a stainless steel pool prefabricated pool that is laminated with acrylic and is 1/7th the weight of traditional concrete pools. 

The outdoor pool located on the 7th floor and will not require special cranes or a designated period of good weather to complete the installation, LIV North’s trained installation team will be able to bring all materials up the elevator and complete the installation and set up in approximately 10 days. 

Features of the Aquabella pool are the hidden gutters, Myrtha Soft walk cushioned floor with anti-slip stairs. Myrtha’s technology allows for a 100% waterproof installation. The liquid PVC sealing method assures that every panel joint is completely tight and waterproof. This is one reason why most pools at high levels in buildings (such as hotels) are switching to Myrtha technology. This Myrtha installation is accompanied by a 25-year structural warranty and a 10-year warranty on the membrane. 

Dan Thompson, President of Myrtha Canada states: “Although Aquabella at Bayside condominium is our first elevated swimming pool in Ontario, it is one of many similar pools we have installed worldwide in a wide variety of premier locations. 

In Ontario, Myrtha has successfully installed the following pools”:

  • Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games Complex, Markham ON
  • Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre, Windsor ON
  • YMCA Quinte West, Belleville ON
  • The Oakville Club, Oakville ON

“We are excited about our future partnership with LIV North to focus on this exciting growth area”, states Dan Thompson.

LIV North Inc. is excited to be a full distributor of Myrtha Pools. Over the last year, we have started working with many developers on a wide range of projects. Brian Townsend, VP Operations for LIV North states: “Myrtha represents the future of elevated pools and wellness facilities in the high rise residential, club and hospitality industries. We are excited about what this technology represents, and the future opportunities currently being worked on.”

LIV North will also be installing a state-of-the-art fitness room at Aquabella that is fully equipped with Life Fitness and Hammer Strength products featuring the SYNRGY360 system for a full functional workout experience.
