Due to the COVID-19 pandemic this year the pool shutdown began in May! Pool shut down is an important part of the annual cycle of our Aquatic Facility. This cycle keeps your pool healthy and functional and helps reduce maintenance related service impacts throughout the year.
While our facility has been closed, both the Aquatic and Maintenance departments have worked diligently to accomplish as much work as they could to mitigate closures once we are able to open access to you.
You may be wondering, WHAT’S THE HOLD UP?!
During Shut Down 2020, a chimney located over the pool mechanical room was scheduled to be replaced. During reactivation inspection and evaluation of tasks to be completed, the Maintenance crew discovered the heat exchanger was severely rusted out, past the point of service. A quote was requested from the company who built our HVAC on replacement, with the original estimated time of arrival for delivery for the requisite part at 4-6 weeks. Upon confirmation of the order, the estimated time of arrival became 6-8 weeks.
The Aquatic and Maintenance departments are all prepared to begin the next stage of start up as soon as the part arrives on site. Unfortunately, without this HVAC part we can not circulate the air in the Aquatic Facility.
A contractor has been tentatively booked for the current estimated time of arrival. All preparations needed prior to installation are being done in advance.
We would like to thank, you, the public for your extreme patience and understanding during this time.
To help our residents understand what is taken care of during shut down, please view the images and descriptions below, which provide insight into what actions we take.
All acid lines in the mechanical room have been pulled out and replaced.
All mermaid filters (12) have been removed from the main pool filter pit. Both the filter jackets and filters have been cleaned, inspected and replaced with new ones if required.
Sand filters (2 - play pool and hot tub) have been emptied and have been cleaned. Both filters will have brand new sand upon opening!
Viewing area and first aid room floors have been deep cleaned, buffed and waxed.
Pool policies and procedures are being reviewed and amended to ensure full compliance with Lifesaving and AHS standards.
Lifeguard inspects the inside of the play pool sand filter. New sand is here and will go in this week.
Scaffolding and ladders up to clean and paint the exterior of all the duct work. The insides were cleaned as well.
Lifeguard preps the change room floor surfaces to buff off hard water stains and calcium build up.
Time for the buffer!
