Pool Changes this year – “Adult Swim” vs “Safety Break”
Welcome to summer neighbors! The pool is open for the season. Over the Memorial Day Weekend there were complaints and concerns about the change from “Adult Swim” during the last 10 minutes of the hour to “Safety Break” where the lifeguards were instructing everyone to get out of the pool.
This year the company we have manage the pool, Aquatic Management of Houston, is at the mandate of their insurance company, responsible for strictly enforcing the “Safety Break” where everyone gets out of the pool. This is a result of incidents and lawsuits across the nation over the last few years. The HOA board learned of the chance in the enforcement of the policy over the weekend just like everyone at the pool.
There is an option for our HOA to sign a waiver with the pool management company to allow adults to swim at this time, but this would leave our community HOA 100% responsible for any adult or child accidents in the pool during that 10 minutes. While it is unlikely there will be any accidents, if there are it could easily bankrupt our HOA leaving our community in a precarious position. We have reached out to the HOA insurance agent to see what coverage we have under our policy and if it would be an option to sign the waiver and still be covered if there was an accident or issue.
Next week, after we receive feedback from the insurance company regarding our options we will get a survey out for feedback. Right now, the “Safety Break” with everyone out of the pool will be enforced. The lifeguard’s primary responsibility is the safety of the pool users. If you have complaints or questions about the lifeguard’s, working or rotation schedule, enforcement or rules, actions, or attitudes take these up directly with Aquatic Management of Houston and not the lifeguards. Any profanity or arguing with the lifeguards will lead to ejection from the pool.
Or ask a lifeguard to call for a supervisor to visit the pool and address your concern.
Thank you for your patience and feedback while we work through the changes and options. Stay cool and enjoy the summer!
UPDATE: At the June 7th HOA meeting The pool management representatives addressed the meeting and apologized for the change management around the “Safety Break” vs “Adult Swim” 10 minute break. They confirmed the requirement is for adults and children to be out of the pool during the “Safety Break” It is a clause that has been in the contract for the last several years, but without strict enforcement until this year. This year their insurance company has stipulated the “Safety Break” be enforced for all swimmers. Homeowner feedback suggested that the pool management company train their lifeguards to give a correct and consistent message regarding the “Safety Break” since conflicting messages were causing confusion. The pool management representatives agreed that additional training was needed. They also clarified that during the 10 minutes the lifeguards should be hydrating, checking the pool chemicals, checking the bathrooms, and picking up in the general pool area. All in attendance agreed that angry mistreatment of the lifeguards was unacceptable.
In the closed session the board members discussed the HOA insurance company response to allowing adults to swim during the safety break. Our HOA would NOT be covered by the pool management or the HOA insurance if this was allowed. As stated in previous communications we appreciate and want homeowner feedback in meetings and on social media. Please respond to the survey regarding options around Adult Swim.
