July 2 Update: The current closure of the R.H. Johnson Pool for the replacement of media in the pool filters is being extended by one day. The pool will now reopen on Thursday, July 4, at regular business hours.
The extra closure day is needed as the filter media replacement has taken longer than expected and staff will need the extra day to backwash and balance the pool chemistry.
Members, thank you again for your patience during this closure time and we hope to see you out and enjoying the pool this July 4th weekend! 

The R.H. Johnson Pool will reopen Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but will close again to repair issues that were identified during this week’s closure.

The Rec Centers had closed the pool for two days this week to more deeply investigate issues with water clarity. Pool specialists identified two issues as the source of the problem – the filters were not operating at optimum efficiency, and the backwash system was failing.

Water chemistry has never been an issue, and the water does not pose a health hazard. Staff has been working on the water clarity issues for several days, but the failing backwash system this week exacerbated the problem.

To solve the clarity problems, the pool specialists will replace the filter media during a two-day closure beginning Monday. The pool will then reopen on Wednesday, but additional work on the backwash plumbing will still need to be scheduled. Those dates have not yet been identified, but the work will require three days.

That second closure will be announced as soon as the work is scheduled with the vendor. With the pool reopening July 3, staff plans to keep it open through the Fourth of July weekend and until the next repairs are scheduled.

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