I’m doing some research for our new indoor pool project and have been asked to reach out to others with an indoor pool to see what I can find out on your experiences and/or recommendations for a new facility. There are a number of questions, I appreciate any response you care to share. If you’re willing to talk more in depth, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 515-239-5352.
What is your current indoor pool set-up?
o Standalone aquatics or attached amenities?
o How many bodies of water do you have?
o How many gallons of water?
o Pool temp and reasoning?
o Staff structure? (part time, full time, etc.)
o How many guards do you have on duty at once?
Do you use regenerative media filters?
o If YES: Do you see a cost saving in operations? (Examples: backwash less often, electivity savings, save on capital with smaller space required, etc.)
o If NO: did you explore RMF and why did you decide against it?
Do you have a salt water pool?
o If YES, what are your pros and cons?
o If NO, did you explore a salt water system and why did you decide against it?
Any other feedback if you were able to work with a design team to build a new indoor aquatic facility?
Thanks so much,
