# Section Reference Ref. Page
1) Management/Personnel Pool: 15.4(2)e 8
Spa: 15.51(2)e 11 and 12
  Item: Manual tests for Chlorine/Bromine and pH shall be documented at least twice every day the pool is open.
  Comment: Review times that the water(s) need tested. Weekday’s and Saturday’s this gets done very well, but Sunday’s two manual and/or any visual readings are not consistent.
2) Water Quality Spa: 15.51(2)a(1) 9
  Item: Spa water shall have a free chlorine residual of at least 2.0 ppm and no greater than 8.0 ppm, or a total bromine residual of at least 4.0 ppm and no greater than 18.0 ppm when the spa is open for use
  Comment: Review testing instructions with all staff to ensure that they are doing the manual tests correctly. Today, the guard was counting drops to measure free chlorine, but stopped prior to the water turning clear, gettting inaccurate readings. Once corrected the spa had too much free chlorine to be open… Keep spa closed until chemical are within acceptable range.
3) Safety Pool: 15.4(4)n(1)6 22
  Item: The door of all rooms that store chemical shall be secured in an open position whenever the room is occupied and locked closed when the room is not occcupied.
  Comment: Make sure that the door to the chemical room from the admin area is locked at all times.
