Hot Tub Update


Here is the latest progress report regarding the hot tub at the John Vanderzicht Memorial Swimming Pool here in Oak Harbor. After repairing, re-grouting, and resurfacing in the hot tub we further discovered that the sand filter, two motors along with the boiler needed to be removed and replaced. Then, last week during an inspection we were told that additional plumbing was required. 

Our contractor will begin the work on October 1st of this year. 

At the completion of the work, we will fill the hot tub, stabilize the chemicals, order the required inspections and we should be good to go. As one who has low back pain and knee problems, I look forward to that day along with those who just enjoy the hot tub.
