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.

How To Prevent Toe Injuries At A Pool

Has anyone ever complained of scraped, cut or even slightly bleeding toes at your pool? Even if you haven’t had a visitor suffer from it, you’ve probably heard of it.

It occurs when visitors are pushing off the bottom of the pool; if the surface is rough, pitted, or cracked, they end up with scrapes and skinned feet. In shallow water, the injuries can also occur on hands and knees.
