The Brookstone Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Aquatic Management Group (AMG) has been retained to manage the pool effective January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2014. AMG will be responsible for management and lifeguard services, daily pool maintenance and cleaning, chemical monitoring, and pump room maintenance and repairs. The pool will open Saturday, May 19, 2012.
We are excited to announce that pool management will include the addition of two on-site adult pool managers this year. Deb Hampton, a certified pool operator, Red Cross certified life guard and Wake County Schools Teacher, has been hired and will be at the pool daily throughout the summer. She will be joined by a second adult manager and a team of lifeguards to be announced at a later date.
The salt water chlorination system in use at the pool for the last two seasons was provided at no cost through our previous pool management contract. The Board found in researching replacement systems, that the existing system may have been undersized for periods of peak pool usage and over reliant on the chemical chlorine backup system. Given the estimates ranging from $15k to $20k for a properly sized salt system, the Board decided that more research would be prudent prior to such a large purchase. The pool will be returning to a conventional chemical chlorine system for the coming pool season.
Those swimming during unstaffed pool hours will be pleased to hear that the bathrooms have been added to the entrance card access system. Swimmers during the morning adult lap swim hours will be able to access the bathrooms using their key cards. The doors will unlock automatically during swim at your own risk hours.
We are pleased to sponsor the Brookstone Barracudas again this year. For information about the team, contact Mark Carter, Swim Team President.
