Wailuku pool closed for repairs

WAILUKU, Maui (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Coach Sakamoto Pool is closed Friday, and will be for a week for repairs. Pool officials found a pump was malfunctioning Friday morning, which caused motor failure.

They hope to have it fixed in a week, as well as a broken heater.

The Sakamoto Pool is located next to the War Memorial and is named after Soichi Sakamoto, who trained Olympic champions in irrigation ditches in the 1930s and 1940s.
