06/22/2022 - Everything has been submitted to the county. The environmental health inspector said he would be reviewing it this week. He was going to do it last week but said he got very busy with septics. Our Recreation Director, Jeremy Sundby has been pushing for this to move as fast as it can. All the changes the county wanted have been made.
Fingers crossed he doesn’t ask for more changes. The changes were due to the CAD program saying the amount of gallons in the pool were less than his math formula he was using. When more gallons are added to the equation, the equipment has to be increased in size to account for required 6-hour filtering. We’ve also been asked to ensure the skimmers are suctioning 25% from the bottom and 75% from the top (so we’ve made this adjustment).
The county also wanted to ensure the deck coping from the concrete company wasn’t going to be sharp, so we had to ensure they understood what we were doing. They’ve requested that we number everything, not staple pages, and that everything be coded. It’s a very particular process that is more involved than a residential pool.
But, the good news is, is that we are moving along nicely. It is taking more time than we ever wanted it to, but when the county wants their changes, we had to make them. Jeremy thinks once it’s open everybody is going to be very pleased with the end result.
Lots of work went into this.
4/29/2022 - Here is our Gold Ridge pool plan; you’ll notice more skimmers being put in and a complete overall of the equipment. We had old residential pumps and filters so those will be replaced with commercial grade pumps and a new filtering system that is up to code. The expected completion date is early to mid-June. Thank you everyone for your patience as we work hard to put in a new salt water pool system and a beautiful deck. We are very excited to share this with you, and can't wait to hangout with everyone at the pool.
Pool Update - hoping for mid-June opening pending El Dorado County Environmental Health Approval.
