August… rollin’ along

From the manager…

ROAD CLOSURE!

Latest Update: 

Word on the street about the street is that the roadwork is scheduled for Friday now, not Thursday, however the word from SDOT when I called says they are doing it Thursday…

We’ll let you know what we know when we know it…


The most immediate information I need to share with you is that the Seattle Department of Transportation – SDOT, will be working on 28th AVE NE from NE 75th to the pool this Thursday, August 17th. I have been told that the work is scheduled to start around noon and that the road will not be drivable for up to 6 hours after the work is completed. We will remain open so if you plan on coming to the pool that day plan on using alternative routes to get here.

WATERSHOW
The other big news this week is that the Watershow is coming up on Saturday!  The show will start at dusk – right around 8:30pm.  Also this year we’ll be having the BeanFish foodtruck on site from 6:30-8:30pm. Yum. So come grab a bite and enjoy the show.  


Please note that the pool will be closing early at 7pm both on Friday for the rehearsal, and then again on Saturday for the big show.

ADULT PARTY.2
On Saturday, August 26th we’ll be having the 2nd and final adult party of the season. There will be drinks and light bites on the upper deck starting at 7pm and the party is scheduled to run until 10pm.  Also during the party there will be an Almost Anything Goes but sadly there will be no bull riding as that beast ended up biting the dust during our last Anything Goes.

TIDBITS – in chronological order

  •  Lesson Registration for Session 5 – Wed., Aug 16th, 8:30am.

Mid-Week Update

Hello –

I wanted to send out a mid-week update as things are really shaping up to be a bit on the extreme side weatherwise these next couple of days.  

At this time the boiler has been completely shut off to help keep the pool as comfortable as possible. This means the water will likely be a little cooler in the morning but hopefully remain refreshing in the late afternoon and evening. Now it’s not uncommon for the pool temp to increase 5-6 degrees, or even more during this type of weather. Turning the boiler completely off, rather than down, has proven to be the most effective method of keeping the pool water cooler and avoiding the later day bathtub effect.

Now because the boiler is turned off, the showers well, will be a tad bit more refreshing these next few days as well.  It’s a bit complicated, but to heat our showers there is a small heat exchanger off of the boiler, the boiler that also heats the pool. t’s a great design most of the time, except when the weather gets really warm. If the boiler were to remain on there’s enough residual heat still remaining from heating the showers that it becomes very difficult, if not impossible, to prevent the pool from continued heating, which during this weather is not so good.

So that’s the story with the pool and shower temps.  I also wanted to send out a reminder that tonight (Wednesday) the pool will be closing early at 5pm for the swim team dinner, awards and movie.

In the time since the last news blast went out on Sunday I have also been asked several times about whether or not there will be any sort of limitations on guests during this hot spell. At this time I don’t have a definitive answer, but my gut tells me we won’t likely need to do that. Still, probably not the best time to bring the whole neighborhood down for a swim though. What I can say definitively is that the pool will be open extended hours on both Thursday and Friday until 10pm!

Stay Cool!
