Pool Progress Report

First set of bids we had to get was for replastering the pool. It takes a lot of time for pool companies to come out then get an estimate to us.

We selected a company.

The job that was supposed to take 3-4 weeks.  It took 3 months.

Then we were told the gunite (concrete) pool shell was failing. (The pool is nearly fifty years old.)

Had to get a second set of bids for pouring an 8" gunite shell inside of our existing pool. We had to wait 3 months before the third company would be able to come out to assess the pool and give an estimate. (None of these companies said we would need engineer drawings to turn into Jefferson County Dept. of Health).

We selected a company to do the job.

We were told by Jefferson County Dept. of Health we would need engineering drawings to be turned in and approved before we could start our project.

The engineers will submit their drawings to Jefferson County Dept. of Health for approval this week. They said it could take a month to hear back from them.

So now we need a third set of bids that meet the specifications of the engineering drawings. 

We have one bid and are in the process of getting two more.  Our nearly 50-year-old Woodhaven pool is beyond light repair or moderate refurbishing. Reconstruction is an absolute necessity. Obviously, the scheduling of additional necessary bids and timeframe of reconstruction will prohibit opening the pool in 2021.  

Like you, we are assessment paying Association members and volunteers who serve our community to keep it a beautiful place to live and raise our families. Please know that there isn't any member of our community that wants our pool up and running more than your volunteer Board of Directors. We have spent many, many hours on the phone, sending texts and emails, meeting again and again with contractors and engineers, showing up for a scheduled meeting with contractors only to have them not show up.  This has been a stressful huge undertaking with many sleepless nights.  We are determined to have success rebuilding our pool.  With your help we will accomplish this goal.

Pool Progress Report

The problem is as follows; The Gunite Shell (concrete) has failed. This is not a maintenance issue but a result of an aging 50 year old pool. To add to the problem we also have underground water that is adding more difficulty to the job. Our contractor is working on solving this issue.

 

SOLUTION

  • Remove failed Gunite, add additional rebar support, regunite and plaster.

  • We are waiting on Mancha Pools to give us a starting date and a projected ending date.

  • Our main goal is to have it done right. We will continue to share updates as the pool repairs progress.

  • Thank you for your understanding.
