[?] A summary of the violations found during the inspection are listed below.

3701-31-04 ( D )(6)(a) / ORP reading is above 650 mv
ORP reading of 430 mV was below minimum limit of 650 mV becaus the disinfectant residual is low.
Restore disinfectant residual to proper level and check calibration of ORP probe if necessary.
3701-31-04 (B)(1)(c) / Minimum disinfection residual provided as required
Critical Corrected During Inspection Chlorine disinfectant residual was less than 1 ppm for the pool.
Do not operate the pool when the disinfectant residuals are less than what is required. Operator has chosen to voluntarily close the pool until the chlorine residual is at least 1 ppm. Ensure the chlorine disinfectant residual is at 1 ppm or above prior to placing the pool back into operation.
3701-31-04 (B)(4)(a)(vii) / Cyanuric acid is tested weekly
Cyanuric acid was not tested weekly.
Test for cyanuric acid level at least once/week.
3701-31-04 (C)(6) / Pool water temperature does not exceed 90 degrees Fahrenheit without approval from the Director
Repeat Corrected During Inspection Pool water temperature measured at 92 is above maximum allowable limit of 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
Either reduce the water temperature of the pool to below 90 degress Fahrenheit or seek approval to operate at a higher temperature from the Director of Health. Thermal setting was lowered on the pool heater by the PIC.
3701-31-04 (D)(5) / Cyanuric acid level does not exceed 70 ppm
Cyanuric acid level measured at 90-100 ppm exceeds the maximum allowable limit of 70 ppm specified in the code.
Drain the pool at least halfway and fill with clean water. Monitor the amount of cyanuric acid being used and adjust accordingly. Consider replacing the current di/tri chloro erosion feeder with a similar calcium hypochlorite erosion feeder. The calcium hypochlorite tablets are not stabilized (i.e., they do not contain cyanuric acid like the di/tri chloro tablets), and therefore will not add cyanuric acid to the pool. Cyanuric acid stabilizer is only needed for outdoor pools that are exposed to the direct rays of the sun for extended periods of time.
3701-31-04 (E)(3)(b) / "Children must be supervised" or "Swimming alone is not recommended" signs posted
The unguarded pool was in use without the "Children must be supervised" and/or "Swimming alone is not recommended" signs posted.
Post the "Children must be supervised" and/or "Swimming Alone is Not Recommended" signs at all times the pool is available for use.
3701-31-04 (E)(3)(d) / "WARNING or DANGER - POOL CLOSED" sign(s) posted-when the pool is closed
The pool does not have "WARNING" or "DANGER" -"POOL CLOSED" sign(s) available for use in the event of pool closure. .
Provide and post "WARNING or DANGER - POOL CLOSED" sign at all times the pool is not available for use.

Inspection Information

[?] Facility Type: Pool

[?] Inspection Type: Standard

[?] Inspection Date: 17-April-2015

To eliminate the headache of managing cyanuric acid residuals, consider replacing the di/tri chloro tablet erosion feeder system with a calcium hypochlorite tablet erosion feeder system. The pool will be disinfected just as effectively as with the di/tri chloro system, but without feeding any cyanuric acid stabilizer (which is not necessary for indoor pools) into the pool. This will eliminate the need to drain and refill 50% of the pool water volume approximately every 3-4 weeks for proper cyanuric acid management. If the disinfection system is changed from di/tri chloro to calcium hypochlorite, the change must be reported to the Ohio Dept. of Health on a "Public Pool Equipment Replacement Notification Report" (copy provided with inspection report.
