As many of you already know, the OC Family YMCA pool has been losing over 6000 gallons per day of water. As you can image, the network of pipes and drains needed to operate the two indoor pools is extensive, and most of the installation is underground. We have been working vigilantly to isolate and locate the defect with a minimal amount of disruption to pool activities. Our tests indicate that the lap pool shell is where the water loss is occurring. We have used dye to test all joints and seams but we have been unable to identify any suspicious areas.
Because of the replenishment water needed to be heated and chemically treated, the costs associated with the amount of water loss are not sustainable. We must locate and fix the problem as soon as possible. We will likely need to close the lap pool for a number of days to conduct additional tests. Our team of directors and instructors will be working with you to help us find ways to minimize the inconvenient cause by this disruption. Rest assured, we are not taking this step lightly. We know how important the pool is to our members. Our goal is to get this resolved as just as soon as we can.
The lap pool will be closing at 12:30 Wednesday November 27 to address the leakage issue. The therapy pool will remain open.
