We hope you are Safe N Healthy | Our Empty Pool Misses You

5/11/2020

We are preparing for reopening by making changes to our services and facility procedures.

Our Safe N Sound team is doing well. We miss the water and our swimmers and can’t wait to see you again!

The latest scientific models, from the University of Washington, predict our state could begin opening the middle of May. In the meantime, we are busy making plans and adjustments for when we are given the OK to reopen and can do so safely. We continue to closely follow local and state health official requirements and guidelines.

SAFETY PROCEDURES

We have already changed our facility cleaning and disinfection routines to better combat the Coronavirus. Now, we are working on procedures and policies required by anticipated health policy guidelines. These modifications include health screenings and social distancing while in the facility. We also anticipate some areas of the facility needing to remain closed temporarily after reopening. In addition, we will provide our staff with plastic face shields for added protection and are working on ways to modify our lessons.

Regardless of any public health concerns, we always take pool water sanitation seriously. Our pool water is cleaned and sanitized through a 4-step process that includes: Chlorine, Ultra-Violet Light, an Oxidizer Enhancer, and natural enzyme. All of these combine to keep our staff and swimmers healthy and our water sanitary. We are confident our water treatment will neutralize any bacterial or viral pathogen in the pool. This isn’t always true for any chlorinated pool. A quick test can be done using your nose. As a rule, a smelly pool is a dirty pool. If you enter a pool facility and encounter a strong chlorine smell it means the pool is dirty and/or out of balance.

MODIFIED OFFERINGS

Upon reopening, we anticipate offering private pool rental times for families, a modified half-day swim camp for a small group of children as well as family swim times that require reservations to help keep participant numbers at a safe level. In addition, we anticipate group lessons for our older swimmers and guided parent and me classes for our younger swimmers. We hope to return to 1-on-1 lessons as the state moves into a low-risk phase.
