I use Dolphins..mid range cost, easy to use and repair (by myself or the selling pool company). Usually about 5-7 years with average care and abuse. (like the sand in the filter...LOL). I do have one "old timer" Dolphin..just…"
I guess checking my "old" CPO workbooks (circa 1998) would not be helpful..LOL (Ah, the good old days...). I believe there was a formula used for square footage/area and depth for shallow and deep water capacity calculations. I may…"
Simply, if a child is in the water (main pool) wearing a lifejacket or floaties...I will look for the adult supervising that child. If there is not one, then my LGs are instructed to direct and/or remove the child from the water. The back-up…"
"YES!!! Absolutely! RUN, do not walk to the nearest telephone and call the area ARC Chapter and report your findings. They will do an investigation, most likely contact the students, as well as the instructor involved. If there is an issue, the ARC…"
