Notes: :

To reiterate, it is up to management to ensure that if the pool is not manually tested for chlorine and ph, it should not open for the day. It is vital that 2 manual tests get done each day and that readings are documented from he auto feeder every 4 hours. If this is not done the pool should not be open.

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.

  Item: Not tested/recorded as often as necessary in Operation Records
  Comment: A manual test has to be done prior to opening the pool each day. If this can’t be done the pool should not open. 6am tests have not been done for weeks. I would like you to email me a copy of your previous weeks log sheets every Monday morning until further notice so I know that this has been corrected.
3) Management/Personnel Pool: 15.4(2)e 8
  Item: The swimming pool and/or spa water shall be tested for total alkalinity at least once in each week that they are open for use. The swimming pool and/or spa shall be tested for calcium hardness at least once in each month that they are open for use
  Comment: Document this on the back of the pool log sheet

  Comment: Spa has not been in working order for over a year. Plan to email a detailed plan to me within 3 months to either get the spa back in working order or permanently removed. At this point, either option will require a permit from IDPH. I can assist you with this process once the decision has been made.
