Pool Maintenance Begins Feb. 4

Posted to Association News by Adam Rosen

Some might argue it’s too cold for a dip in the pool to start the year, but there are people that enjoy the heated pools at the Mountain Vista Club and Foothills Center all year long. These are frequented by lap swimmers, water aerobics, and those looking for a milder version of the Polar Plunge or a good workout when the water is warm, and the air is cool.

We keep the pools open 365 days a year for you to enjoy except for when our annual maintenance happens. This maintenance is done during the coolest time of the season to disrupt as little pool fun as possible, and we’ve scheduled maintenance for both community pools for next month at separate times so one pool is always open.

Our annual pool maintenance will begin Monday, Feb. 4, at the Mountain Vista Club. The pool area will be closed for about two weeks as the pools are emptied and cleaned to remove dirt and residue from a long, hot year. The CoolDeck will also be power-washed to ensure it keeps your feet cool on the hottest days for years to come.

Once work is done at the Mountain Vista Club, pools are refilled, and the lap pool is heated to a comfortable temperature, we will reopen the pool area and close the Foothills Center to perform maintenance there. Similar work is expected to take about a week to complete at Foothills, and both pools will be reopened by the end of February.

Check out eNews later this month for exact dates for each pool closure. Thank you for your cooperation as this work is done; we can’t wait to open both pools back up for the spring and summer and reopen the water slides in May!

Acacia Grove and Primrose Estates residents: your neighborhood pool will undergo maintenance once work is done at Foothills Center in late February. We will let you know by email when we have exact dates.

During this time of year, you might be noticing a considerable number of turf weeds like spurge and crabgrass in your lawn. Pre-emergent is a good way to help prevent an onslaught of turf weeds in the future. However, you will still need to treat current weeds with an herbicide or through manual pulling.

Pre-emergent sinks into the soil with water and works to stop weeds before they even start growing. You can find it at most garden or hardware stores in both granular and liquid form. We recommend putting down your first application in February or early March. You should then wait 90 days to put down the second application. You will see your DLC Resources crew doing the same throughout Vistancia’s turf areas.

Completing your pre-emergent applications in the spring is optimal because there will not be pre-emergent still active in your turf’s soil when it comes time to overseed in the fall. This is important because while pre-emergent stops weeds in their tracks, it can also stop your Ryegrass seed from germinating.

Pre-emergent is a great approach to weed control because you can spend less time working to mitigate weeds and more time to simply sit back and enjoy your lawn.
