Work on the main pool filter replacement project at the South Orange Community Pool is being completed today. The contractor is on site, working to get pool filtration operational.
Chemicals must then be balanced and a positive water test result from a 3rd party laboratory is required before pool use is permitted. Water samples will be taken today for analysis. While the pool has been chlorinated, the lack of water circulation for an extended period of time is likely to result in initial test failure. Immediate retesting will occur until a positive result is achieved. As soon as permitted, the main pool will be open for use for the season.
We will send an announcement as soon as we know that we have the go-ahead to open. Information will also be posted on the Village website at www.southorange.org and on twitter @SOPool as it becomes available.
Regardless of the water testing results in the main pool, the pool facility will now be open for the season beginning Saturday, June 23, as follows:
- Saturday-Sunday, 10am-8pm
- Monday-Friday, 12pm-8pm
EARLY BIRD SWIM: Early Bird Swim is scheduled to begin Monday, June 25, 6:15-8:00 am (Early Bird Membership is required). Patrons should check the website for main pool status.
SWIM LESSONS NOTE: In order to avoid the need for any last minute notifications this weekend, all Saturday swim lessons will now begin June 30.
The Maplewood Pool is now open only to those with Maplewood Pool memberships. Thank you to the Maplewood Recreation Department, the governing body and pool membership for welcoming South Orange pool members at their facility the last 2 weekends.
