I went to talk to Josh at the fitness center about changing the time of Mr. B’s swim lessons, and noticed that there was NOBODY around or in the pool. I made my way over to the life guard tent and got everything straigtened out and told them I’d be back that afternoon.
“Nope” he said, “Not today.”
“Well, his lesson is at 2:45, right?”
“Normally yes, but, um…the pool has been shut down.”
“What? How is that possible?” I asked.
“When you get a suprise visit from the Health Department and your ph levels in the pool are so low that he kicks everyone out of the pool and closes it until it’s fixed, you kind of have to cancel swim lessons.”
Is that GROSS or what? There are like, 300 or so kids who use that pool EVERY DAY – state law requires that the water be checked every day, our city law states that it has to be checked 3 times a day, and it hadn’t been checked in over a week!!! My kid gets that water in his mouth and so do other kids and they all spit in it and pee in it and EWWWWW!! I’m just dissapointed in the owners.
I mean, it’s not like it’s a piddly public pool that has to rely on funding and $2 admissions or whatever to keep it up, this is a FITNESS CENTER pool. You have to PAY to be member and get in an use the facilities and all that jazz. Nobody is paying less than $34 a month to be a member, plus extra if you want to have a family membership, plus the group swim lessons and private swim lessons and swim team and the guest pass you have to buy to swim and…and…that’s a LOT of money! And you can’t keep the ph levels up? That’s just sad. Sheesh.
Oh, and Rich, you better not comment…that’s all I have to say!!
