  • This is the info I got last week when I popped by Outram Pool for an enquiry:

    Phone: 6782 1300
    Email: swimming@greatwhite.com.sg

    Tue - Thu: 6.30pm - 10.00pm ($25)
    Sat: 2.30pm - 7.00pm ($28)
    Sun: 9.00am - 3.00pm ($28)

    Prices include one tank & weights.

    Pool sessions are possible at SAFRA Mt Faber as well, but I understand you need to book 3 days in advance and I don't have the contact for that one..

  • Anyone knows if you can still just walk in and pay the guy behind the grand stand for tanks and weights and then just hop in the pool ?

  • I went down today to test my gear. Arrived at 10am and all the tanks were gone. In the end, had to use a used tank (around 80 psi left).

    So try to be really early on Sundays or go during weekday evenings to avoid disappointment.

    Not dissing anyone, just for info.

    Did you mean 80 bar? 80 psi is 5.5 bar.. that's only gonna last about 2 minutes! :P

    Anyway, pools don't normally charge their tanks to a full 200 bars. I had a shock the first time I tested my new regs and the SPG only read 150 bars. Thought my new regulator set was spoilt...  :o

    Did you get a 50% discount for renting a 50% tank?

  • Haha just realized it should be 80 bar, my bad. No 50% discount la, maybe 20%? I paid 20 bucks instead. Was doing buoyancy check so was ok, didn't need too much air.
    But had to take my regs set-up and test the used tanks 1 by 1  :'( to find one with enough air to use.

    Apparently the school doesn't charge the tanks, it's sub-con out to someone. A pick-up will bring the re-charged tanks back to the school
