# Section Reference Ref. Page
1) Management/Personnel Pool: 15.4(2)e 10 and 11
Spa: 15.51(2)e 11 and 12
  Item: Manual tests are not being conducted as often as necessary
  Comment: Calcium hardness shall be tested and documented at least once per month. Also, free chlorine should not always read at even numbers.
   
2) Water Quality Pool: 15.4(2)b 10
Spa: 15.51(2)b 10
  Item: The pH level of a spa / pool shall be 7.2 to 7.8
  Comment: pH is extremely high today (pool is closed due to recent rainstorms). The automatic reading showed the pH to be at 7.6, which it was not. I recommend having someone service your automatic reader as it does not appear to be working correctly.
   
3) Safety Pool: 15.4(4)f(1) 17
  Item: A minimum of one unit of lifesaving equipment shall be provided for each 1500 sq. ft. of water surface area or fraction thereof. The area of a swimming pool where the water is 2 ft. deep or less may be subtracted from the total area for this requirement. A swimming pool is not required to have more than ten units of lifesaving equipment.
  Comment: Please have at least one lifesaving unit hung in a conspicuous location on the fence. The shepherd's crook you have does not have a pole attached to it.
