The Community Center building was pressure washed and painting of the exterior continues.
Landscape around the pool area is almost complete. The area in front of the building where the plant material was damaged due to construction will be addressed next.
The main issue remaining is how fast can the plaster crew get here and plaster the spa. We gave the crew notice 2 weeks ago and we are in their rotation. Please know this is the busiest time of the year for any vendor in the pool industry and thus they are overbooked and sometimes running late. I have been assured it will happen this week and can only hope they stay true to their word.
Now that we are about to stick our toes back in the pool water, I want to provide information regarding some new health codes that we are required to enforce. All pool chemical indices must be recorded one time per day, seven days per week. Our system is computerized and will monitor and store information for one year.
As a reminder, the health code changed last year to not permit anyone in the pool area that suffered diarrhea in the past 14 days. The new health regulations for 2016 add that anyone with an infection of any kind, anyone with a band aid or scrape will not be permitted to enter the pool area. As the law is new, I am anticipating it will be enforced on the honor system of our residents.
I would also ask for everyone’s cooperation in not bringing any gum into the pool area. For clarification, this is not a rule or policy however; gum damages the surface of the pavers as it penetrates the nook and crannies that provide the non-slip surface. When the pool was last opened, our cleaning crews dealt with scraping 15+ used gum piles stuck to the pavers on a daily basis. Gum discolors and removes the sealant on the pavers and we want our new pool deck to remain looking new for a long time. Your cooperation on this is greatly appreciated.
Finally, all of our pool furniture was pressure washed and all spiders and other pests that were living on them removed. As soon as the plaster and paint is completed, the furniture will be treated to resist oil stains from lotion as well as damage from the heat and sun. Following treatment the furniture will be placed around the pool.
Thanks everyone for your patience during this major project, we are almost done!
