Pool Committee Meeting 07.07.13

Attendance: George Franck, Craig Shores, Doug Kane and Joe Salling

Started: 2:00PM – Ended 3:00PM



Topics:

Power Washing building and Chairs at the pool:
It was discussed about our volunteer George Fesler to discuss with him about the time table to address power washing chairs – if he cannot complete quickly we will contract out to get this completed quickly.

If George cannot address – ask Tellasondro (Georges contact)

Painting:
Pool house and bathrooms need to be painted: We will ask Tellasondro for an estimate of painting and replacing of some facial boards around the edges of the roof.

It was decided that the color of paint to be used would be the same tan paint along with the facial boards to be painted in gloss black to give a more upscale look. (George will contact him for the estimate).

Wall clock and outdoor / pool thermometer:
(Joe to source and acquire a clock and thermometer to monitor temperatures in and out of the pool).

Signs:
New signs to be made to standardize the look of the signs to include the General Rules and have them posted in the covered area of the pool house. In addition to the new sign the committee thought it was important to state the hours of operation: 7AM-10PM Doug to get estimate for the signs.

Plumbing:
Bathroom toilet was addressed (was leaking in two locations) by the pool company and is fixed at the moment.
Out door shower pipe needs to be replaced as it is cracked Doug will get a photo and send to his contact to get an estimate.

Umbrella and stand for table:
Doug to look at Lowes for one additional umbrella (Blue to match the other existing umbrella’s).

Erosion at the back side of the pool deck:
A common problem that has to be addressed periodically. We are looking for a more permanent solution to the situation potentially using a railroad tie to create a small wall to slow down the flow of water in that area. Craig to ask landscaping company to give us an estimate and or to validate the proposed solution.

Insect control:
Reported by a concerned pool owner about spiders in the bathrooms. It was noted the pool company weekly brooms out the bathrooms to get rid of any bugs. The bathrooms and surrounding areas of the pool house were sprayed (completed)
Wasps at entrance of fence sprayed (completed)

Pool Heater:
Water temperature is staying at a comfortable 81-84 degrees. Potential tampering with the heater has occurred. Looking to purchase a piece Plexiglas to cover and attach to the section of the fence in front of the Heater.

Website:
A website has been created to communicate to the pool owners about activities at the pool. It is intended that we use this site to communicate and record activities for the pool at this location.

Question for Priestly Management and the Board:
we would like a way to effectively know if and when we send out information via email if it is A. getting to users B. if users are looking at our notifications C. give people a way to opt out of the communication from the pool committee. This could also be a way to communicate information from the Neighborhood Watch Committee and for the Home Owner Association Board monthly communications. It was recommended that Constant Contact or a similar tool be used to facilitate this conversation.

Pool cover:
We will need to schedule with Jack (George to call) to get estimate on the costs of the pool cover and if it is possible to address this issue this year. Another option discussed was to see if we go without a cover and have periodic maintenance throughout the winter months (as it could be a cost-effective way to manage the pool during that time.

George Franck will also be organizing a meeting with the Pool Committee and the owner of Scuba Clean to gain guidance on selecting an adequate cover for the pool in the coming weeks.

Painting of pool floor:
Estimate to be gathered for repainting the pool this winter/spring (2014). Thoughts of also having a portion of the shallow end to be painted black or a darker color to facilitate heating of the water without the use of the pool heater. Also it was raised to ask about having either by paint or some type of stickers to identify the water jets at the bottom of the shallow area so people could see them easily.

Weeds around fence have been sprayed

Pool documents from previous committee’s and key(s) to be acquired by Joe. Documents will be digitized and captured for storage on web site in secure area.

Tabled items:
Cracks in pool deck
Lighting fixtures in bathrooms and main light in the pool house
