Update as of 3 p.m. June 26: Members, thank you for your patience as we investigated the issues with the filtration and backwash at the RH Johnson Pool today. At this time, we will be keeping the pool closed tomorrow, Thursday, and will evaluate it after that on a day-by-day basis. Today, during the closure, we were able to open and clean out four of the six filters. We will do the other two tomorrow. Part of that process includes mixing up the filtration media, and backwashing, which is causing sediment to flow back into the pool. This will occur again tomorrow as we finish the last two filters. After the filters have had time to work, we will evaluate whether the clarity of the pool has improved enough to reopen. In the meantime, we are awaiting parts and will schedule the replacement of the filtration media and backwash mechanisms as soon as possible. Keep an eye on our social media for all the latest.

The Rec Centers will be closing the RH Johnson Pool on Wednesday, June 26, to evaluate the filtration system in its entirety.

Water at the pool has been cloudy in recent days, although the pool chemistry is still in the appropriate range and does not pose a health hazard. The closure will allow staff to work with its pool specialists and closely examine the complete filtration system.

Staff already has determined the filtering media needs to be replaced as the filters are not operating at optimum efficiency. The new filtration media and appropriate filtration components are being ordered.

An additional issue with the backwashing components on Tuesday led to the closure.

Staff is inviting the Maricopa County inspector out during the closure as an additional resource.

Reopening will be determined after evaluation of the new backwashing issue. The filtration repairs and replacement will be scheduled as soon as possible.

Stay tuned to and the Rec Centers’ social media for all the latest on this closure.
