"When I was assistant manager at a pool, we had a mandatory monthly meeting on Sunday mornings before the pool opened where the guards got their monthly reviews and updates from the management staff.  We then had the in-service following those…"

"I used to do the 1 hour per month in-services but found that a lot of my guards weren't coming. Currently I am doing a 2 hour in service once per session (every 7-8 weeks). I give the guards 2 options for days/times and they have to attend one…"

"Why 88f? That is high for indoor never mind outdoors. I'd say open the pool when the outdoor temperature is high enough that heating won't break the budget. Do you have any solar or geothermal heating or is it purely electric/gas heat?"

Outdoor pool temperature

The summer season is about to start and  the weather doesn't want to warm up just yet in CO. I was wondering what is the minimum temperature do you allow an outdoor pool to open when the pool is heated. I am thinking until the weather starts to warm up, the pool will be heated to 88 degrees. Just no sure if need to wait till 70 degree out to open the pool, 65 or anything below 60 stay closed. The pool is just a neighborhood recreation facility poolSee More

I just would like to hear the policy most facilities have on indoor pool closure for lighting. I usually go by the 10 sec flash bang method just as the standard. I know some say no record of injuries for indoor pools and more dangerous clearing pool just want to find out the standard . I started at a new pool which has been using weather apps to find out how far away lighting is to the pool to determine closure. See More
