Good morning Bayside Villas East,

They have assured me that the pool is safe to swim in however, is currently closed because it needs to be cleaned and vacuumed. The pool company feels that the pool should be opened by late this afternoon. They know that they are not to leave Bayside Villas East until I have come to inspect their work and to ensure that it is ready and beautiful for you guys!

3 WEEKS OF A GREEN POOL!!!!

Feedback Problem for Bayside Villas East

So how long does it take to clear up a green pool? the pool has been down for 3 weeks now. They drained it and refilled it and never came back. My direct email has gone without an answer. In the mean time the pool if green, filling, heating and draining into the bay all at the same time. Our water pressure in the apartment is crap because of the pool filling. Do you intend on adjusting our rent this month for not having the pool? We all think you should.

Good morning Pete, 

 

I am glad that we were able to talk just now. Again, please accept my apologies for this ongoing frustration. I can assure you that is has been and will continue to be a top priority until it is resolved. I personally went over to the pool today and witnessed it myself. It is safe to swim in currently however is still closed due to clean up being needed. The pool company will be out here within the hour to get started and have informed me that it should be open by late this afternoon. 

 

I promise to keep you posted and they know that they are not to leave till I personally come out there to ensure that it is ready and beautiful for you guys! 

 

Sincerely, 

Alex

Bayside Villas East Swimming Pool

Announcement for Bayside Villas East

Attention Bayside Villas East Residents,

I wanted to touch base with all of you to provide an update on the swimming pool. Charlie and I went over to inspect the pool and have determined that it is not clearing up in a satisfactory manner. We have decided to drain the entire pool at this time, have the walls completely scrubbed and cleaned and then refill the pool in its' entirety. Once full, the chemicals will then be put in to ensure all Ph and Chlorine levels are satisfactory. I have been given a promise from our pool vendor that this will be complete and the pool will...

Sent an email with no reply, also called the office and no answer.

Bayside Villas East Swimming Pool

Announcement for Bayside Villas East

Dear Bayside Villas East Residents:

I wanted to update each of you on the progress of the swimming pool. After speaking with Artistic Pools, they are confident all levels will be perfect for swimming by tomorrow. The pool is still in the refill and cleaning stage so the ph levels are not appropriate for swimming at this time. If anything changes, of course I will reach out to you but after my conversation with Maintenance and Artistic, I am confident you will all be able to swim again tomorrow.

I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate the...

Bayside Villas East Pool

Announcement for Bayside Villas East

Dear Bayside Villas East Residents:

I wanted to let you all know that we are in the process of getting rid of the green tint of the pool. It would appear the wrong chemical was put in the pool that negated the effects of Chlorine. At this point we will be draining the majority of the pool over the next 2 days and will then refill it. Artistic is scheduled to be here on Wednesday to finalize the ph levels and have it ready for you to swim again.

We are sorry for the inconvenience but do appreciate your patience!

Sincerely,

Alligator in Pool

Announcement for Bayside Villas East

Attention Bayside Villas East Residents:

Today Charlie put an inflatable Alligator in the swimming pool in an attempt to startle the ducks and keep them out of the water. It is our sincere hope this will curb the ducks from doing their business where you swim. If you could all please leave the Alligator in the pool to float at all times it would be much appreciated. We will monitor closely any improvement and always ask you to keep us informed.

Our Maintenance staff will be there daily to ensure the pool deck is cleaned and our pool maintenance staff will be there...

Bayside East Pool

Announcement for Bayside Villas East

Attention Bayside Villas East Residents:

Lately we have received word from several residents that the Bayside Villas East pool heater may be malfunctioning or not working at all. Over the last couple of days we have been running tests to see what if anything is wrong. After careful review, the pool heater is working perfectly! We did notice however that in shaded areas of the pool, the temperature runs right at 87 degrees where areas directly in the sun to creep up in to the 90's. Mother nature at times may dictate the pool be a bit warmer.......

Please jump in and...

The pool has not been working for almost the last two weeks. It usually shows "FLO" and has not been warmer than 81.2 There's obviously no chemicals being circulated because we have seen the mallard ducks swimming, drinking, and pooping in it. Do you have any idea when these issues will be fixed?

Thank you for letting us know your concerns. I have contacted the pool service company and hopefully they will be out today. They did say though that the fact that ducks have been in the pool is no indication that the chemicals are not working. However, they will check that as well when they stop by. 

 

Thanks again and let us know how we can help!

 

Sincerely, 

Alex

I thought we were not being charged for the pool water, which it turns out is connected to the entire building and not on a separate meter. Also where can we get an accounting of the water bill and how it is divided for billing? and will you be taking into account that that line has broken two times and run unobstructed for over 12 hours each time....

chrisdunham's picture

Hi Peter,

The pool maintenance is a portion of the water charge that is assessed to the residents. What we do not charge you for is instances where we would have to drain and refill the pool for any reason due to the excessive water usage.

From a billing perspective, I receive monthly community usages and compare them to the month prior. Each resident is then assessed a portion based on number of adults in the household and size of the apartment. This month for instance, we have requested NWP reduce the Water usage per resident to mirror the month of November due to service we performed on the pool as well as excessive refill times. This is a part of my duties on a monthly basis to ensure all residents are billed fairly.

Should you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me anytime via email.

Sincerely,

Christopher Dunham
