New Pool Rules Added
The KCHOA Board of Directors at it’s meeting on Monday added three (3) new rules for the pool complex. The purpose behind these rules are to ensure the safety and enjoyment of the residents using the pool.
The first added rule pertains to all rules and the new rule is “Any resident caught breaking the pool rules will have their pool device deactivated for one year.” While probably over 99% of the residents follow the rules all it takes is just a few to break the rules creating an environment that is not safe or enjoyable.
The second rule has to do with glass containers inside the pool complex. Recently glass bottles of beer were discovered. The KCHOA Pool is considered by Federal, State and County law to be a commercial pool and therefore very regulated. If any glass container is broken inside the pool complex under the law we are required to close the pool down, drain the entire 27,000 of water out of the pool, clean the interior and then refill the pool. The is a very expensive proposition so how would you like to pay a one time water bill for 27,000 gallons will that is the new rule. If you enter the pool complex with a glass container then you will be held financially responsible and a special assessment will be made to you.
The third rules pertains to Balloons, including water balloons. While we appreciate the festive atmosphere balloons can add to a party or a good old water balloon fight the balloons to create a hazard to the pool pumping and filtering system since they are not biodegradable. Therefore no balloons in the pool complex.
