A not-So-Ordinary Renovation for an Ordinary School Swimming Pool

Serving the local swim team and students of the South Puttman high school along with members of the surrounding community – day in and day out, 12 months a year – generally does not make for splashy headlines or warrant national media attention. But it is exactly this type of pool with which most pool managers in North America are intimately familiar. Nearly everyone at one point or another in his or her career has or will manage a pool much like it.

The South Putnam High School pool’s strengths include a dedicated and professional coach/pool manager and a community fully committed to its support. Its weaknesses – before a recent renovation was undertaken – included a deteriorated and badly corroded metal gutter, a completely worn out diatomaceous earth (DE) filter tank, a potentially unsafe diving stand, a pool finish that was badly chipped and faded, a lack of modem automatic pool controls and a severely limited budget.

The Best Repair Options for Public Pools

Aquatic facilities are often on a tight budget when they need an upgrade to their pool, especially when older pools have leaking, spalled or deteriorated surfaces. Whether your pool was constructed of concrete, fiberglass, steel or aluminum, you can rely on a textured PVC pool membrane liner to effectively contain water, seal structural cracks and solve problems such as leaks.

A pool renovation can include a liner, gutter, and new deck.

Slippery When Wet: Why Textures Are So Important At Your Pool

If your facility has a gutter trough system, you’re sure to often see people hop, stand, and sit on the grates. While children are the usual culprits, chances are you’ve seen a fair share of adults do it too.  Asking your guests to stay off the grates can be a difficult rule to enforce, particularly if the gutter is at deck level.

Other high risk areas of your pool are easier to identify, but there are ways to ensure an even greater level of safety for both you and your visitors.
