Notes: .
Please email a letter of correction stating how the violations listed below have been and/or will be corrected to diane.midcalf@linncountyiowa.gov within 30 days of this inspection.

NOTE: If ORP is below 660 the pool should be closed until it is above 660. With that being said, I think the ORP seems low compared to the rest of the readings and may not be correct. I recommend having the automatic controller recalibrated and then reset the setting to at least 700-725.
