What’s Happening at the Double Dub…

From the Manager

My oh my time does fly. Here it is almost August… 

Yesterday was the busiest day of the season, which is not surprising to those of you that were here at the pool. Now only 15% of our membership actually signed in, but with all the guests in tow the actual number of people here was, well, plenty.  There was a run on both lounge chairs and umbrellas and it seems like we’ll never have enough of either. More are already on the way though.

This week marks the beginning of the later half of the season. Dual meets are done and now as we slide into the championship season a reminder that we don’t host any of these big end of the season meets, which is pretty unusual.  Both Water Polo and the Watershow are starting to ramp up. and information on both of those can be found below.

Early morning lap swim is now all 6 lanes, 6-7:30am, enjoy! 

Now I did receive several suggestions regarding my request for ideas about how to enhance our security. Besides checking things in at the office, the number one idea people shared is to get one of these.


Excited for Adult Party 2.0?
This Saturday night from 7-10pm on the upper deck.  Adult beverages and appetizers will be served on the upper deck.

Fun Float / Almost Anything Goes
Also in conjunction with the aforementioned Adult Party, there will also be a kidz fun float/almost anything goes from 7-9:30pm. So break out that inflatable and get pumped up! Saturday night promises to be fun for everyone! Please note: The lap lanes will not be available during the fun float.

Adult Team 
Adult team took 2nd place this past Saturday at Aqua Club, and only 14 points off first! Guess I have to swim next year. Thank you Coach Brenda!

Also any adult team members wanting to order a swanky new team shirt please contact Kristin Hill, let her know by Friday, August 3rd.

Lesson Registration
Member registration for session 4 will be this Wednesday starting at 8:30am.

Water  Polo
We are on the cusp of Water Polo season. Click here for information about the season and click here for registration.  We also have a new WW Water Polo Facebook Page. This will be the goto spot for up to date info on water polo at WW.

It is time to start thinking about the 2018 Watershow! The Watershow is a super fun experience where kids ages 3-18 get to learn a skit/dance on land and in water and perform it with fun costumes! They will get put in a group of kids around their age and practice a few times leading up to the show. The show is on August 18th at 8:30pm and we will also have a dress rehearsal on August 17th at 7pm. Once we put together groups, each instructor will send out an email with practice times for the week and a half leading up to the show, but no worries if your kiddos can’t make all of the practice times. We just want them to have a good time! The sign up sheet is on the window right outside of the office so come sign up THIS WEEK! This year’s theme is MUSCIALS!


What’s this?


With our current boiler system the water we use to heat the pool runs through a large heat exchanger at 180 degrees. this same water also runs through another smaller heat exchanger to heat the water for our showers as well. The result is that our domestic hot water is initially very hot, way too hot to safely use, so it needs to be tempered. This is our tempering valve. This device allows adjustment of the domestic water temperature and has a range of about 90-105 degrees. 

Typically our showers are about 98 degrees but when the weather is really hot and we are trying to keep the pool comfortable we shut the boiler off, because the systems are connected the showers may also be a bit chilly.

Now I’ve had questions as to why the outdoor shower is warmer than our indoor ones. My theory is that because the outdoor shower line, which is uninsulated, runs along the ceiling in the boiler room, and the boiler room is often upwards of 120 degrees, what you are experiencing is the transfer of heat from that room to that pipe. Now it’s only about a 20 foot run, so that shower shouldn’t be much warmer for long. Conversely, the indoor showers are much further away from the boiler room and instead of gaining heat like the one in the boiler room, these pipe runs start to lose heat as soon as the water leaves the storage tank. And if this water sits for any length of time, well these showers will take a while to heat up, especially if you are the early morning lapper and the first one to turn one on.
