Joined for pool swim excerise, worked around publised swim hours and lap swim lanes.  life guards (they only had one dedicated & professional acting LG)  when adults were using the lap swim lane and needed to put up a second lane they would not. They would allow teens to play in the lap lanes. 

unschedualed daycare children are brought into play w/o showering. and spread  out overthe pool w/ only one LG to watch appx 20 screaming kids.  ( a child screaming for fun sounds like a child screaming for help)  I FULLY support child swim lessions.

Those classes were 3-7 max.  whent the playing kids stirred up the bottom sediment, the sediment was clearly visiable, dense, large particals that if aspriated would cause chronic and undiagonsed respriatory problems. 

Obvious that the pool filtration was inadequate.  Combined with play time dirt not even rinced w/ a shower walk thorough and infrequent use of the pool crawler vacuem ( I watched to see if the device had been moved and if tubing had been reset in a diffrent position/ it raerly was) the pool was unhealthy and over crowed. 

While PH was correct, PH does not remove sediment. DUring the last 10 months, the pool was drained twice for repairs, yet filtriation was not updated and sediment returned to unsafe level in less than 30 days.  I support Chriatian atheletics and programs, but I cannot waste my money on something like this.  I reported the problems twice before I finally quit.  Do not join for swim excerise.

Kids are not being required to shower off before hitting the pool, contributing to sediment levels.  They are escorted by adults throgh change rooms w/o even a walk through the shower.  yes I do call out adults who do not shower.  I makes the filter system work even harder.

Kids Have Nothing to Do With This Complaint

AUTHOR: Jim - (United States)

....life guards (they only had one dedicated & professional acting LG)  when adults were using the lap swim lane and needed to put up a second lane they would not. They would allow teens to play in the lap lanes.  Well, I guess for starters, when you only have adults doing laps in the pool for exercise, one lifeguard is seriously too many. 

Even in a situation where a swimmer gets a cramp in their calf, the swimmer can generally straighten that situation out on their own.  Go to any health club where adults do laps and there will be no lifeguard on duty.  In a situation where there are teens in the pool, one lifeguard is enough.  YMCA's allow kids to take priority in the pool, in an afternoon setting.  Doing this supports the community as a whole.  The pool does not exist for the benefit of lap swimmers.

 ( a child screaming for fun sounds like a child screaming for help)  Not to a lifeguard.  A child screaming for help is distinctly different.  It might be for you, but then you aren't trained as a lifeguard either.

Obvious that the pool filtration was inadequate.  Combined with play time dirt not even rinced w/ a shower walk thorough and infrequent use of the pool crawler vacuem ( I watched to see if the device had been moved and if tubing had been reset in a diffrent position/ it raerly was) the pool was unhealthy and over crowed.  I'm not sure exactly what's being said here, but if there is a problem with the pool's filtration system, then it really isn't safe for lap users.  The kids have nothing to do with that problem.  This is a problem with the pool's motor and entire system of keeping the pool clean.

Your complaint has nothing to do with kids or teens playing in the pool, nor does this have anything to do with the adding of lane lines for additional lap swimmers.  All of that is completely irrelevant to the report since (a) a properly working filtration system would keep the pool clean even if a kid jumped in the pool with dirt on their body, and (b) the policy as a whole is to provide the community with a pool for young people to swim, or even learn to swim, regardless of whether you think lap swimmers should have more access. 

The REAL problem is that the pool as a whole is unsafe; emptying the pool does nothing to solve the general problem the pool has, which is the poorly functioning equipment.
