The pool chlorinator has failed and H2O is working at finding a replacement. A temporary replacement is being used to clean up the water. This has been a challenging pool season. We appreciate your patience.
More info from H2O: Major repairs are needed for the circulation system: Pool Works advised H2O that major repairs would be needed earlier in the season but the complications that have developed were not anticipated. The filtration system is not processing the amount of water it should be. This is the major cause of clarity issues in the pool.
Water temperature: Sites with heaters get algae and clarity issues more easily – H2O workers have decreased the temperature for now. Clearly the hot weather has contributed to the problem.
Chemistry: If the chlorine falls too low at any point, it can cause clarity issues. While there is no evidence that the chlorine dropping below appropriate levels, the chlorinator broke down. It was replaced and is now functional), yet the chlorine levels haven’t been as even as they should be.
Specialty chemicals: H2O has added a series of specialty chemicals designed to clarify the pool and kill algae. There has been some success, but it has not been as significant a change as we had hoped.
Other options: H2O is currently working on a series of tests with Pool Works to see if there is anything else to be done. All our maintenance tasks are being completed at least twice as often at Salter as they are at any other pool presently. They say they’re doing everything they can to get this pool cleared up and open!
