(WDAY TV) -- Another issue with water lines has the Schlossman YMCA closing its doors again this weekend.

A water suppression line broke yesterday, flooding much of the lower level and closing the gym. And making parents scramble for child care. As excavating crews worked to fix the break today, they discovered a leak in the main water supply line.

The location will be closed this Saturday and Sunday to complete those repairs.

Paul Finstad, YMCA President, says, "we decided that rather than close the facility right away, it would make sense to have a scheduled close where we could allow the fitness members to come in and use the facility for a period of time, and especially, could allow the childcare families to finish the week off with childcare before we close down."

The location WILL be open tonight and tomorrow, and the 24 hour fitness center will stay open through the weekend.

YMCA officials hope to re-open regular hours Monday.
