Thank you for your patience as we worked this out! As always, we work to keep the closure time to a minimum each year. Here are the details of the repairs and maintenance that need to be completed this year:
The Chemical and Pump Room
Perform annual maintenance on boilers which includes clean out burners through HVAC city personnel.
·Replace the backwash solenoid to the Splash Pool. This are the solenoids that control the backwash valves for the 2-tank filter system.
·Repair the leak on the sand filter for the Splash Pool downstairs in the pump room that has been leaking since February.
· Have the electrical panel rewired and relocated for the chlorine and acid pumps for both pools in the chemical rooms. Tagging and relabeling all wires and connections to new location (Huge Project).
· The electricians to change the transformer caps from 195 – 208 on the electrical panel for the chemical feeding pumps in the pump room for both pools.
· Preventative maintenance on all pool pumps and equipment. This involves thorough inspection of all pumps, boilers and filters and replacing valves, gaskets where needed and completing repairs.
Pool Deck and Locker Rooms
·Hydro Jet all deck drains to clean them out and remove debris that is blocking some of the drains.
· Replace broken tile around each pool. There are several that we have had to temporarily fix throughout the year to eliminate sharp edges.
·Access and fix the leaking gutter collection boxes on Splash Pool Deck. The first one is located outside the Men Staff Locker Room and the second one is located above the Splash Lockers.
·Have electricians continue to change out the rest of the perimeter lights around the facility to LEDs. This includes the pendent lights in the front entrance walkway.
·Repainting of both diving board ladders and stands.
·Have contractors fix the five lights that are coming out of the niches. This includes having scuba gear personnel reinstall and repair the niche.
Thank you for your understanding in the need to complete these repairs. This is a major contributing factor in keeping the facility in top notch condition!
