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.

Fall Planting

Posted to Landscaping Tips by Samantha Thomas

In case you needed another reason to be excited about cooler temperatures, beginning this month you should be able to lower your water usage— and water bill! In cooler temperatures, plants are able to absorb and retain water more easily, lowering overall usage. In October, you may begin dialing back you’re your irrigation system to water your landscape 2-3 times a week. In total, your turf should receive approximately 1 inch of water on a weekly basis. 

If you have the option available, set your system to water the landscape in the early hours of the morning, between 4-5 a.m. This helps to reduce water costs and allows the water to seep into the soil before the sun is able to induce evaporation. 

If you are ever uncertain if your soil is receiving the correct amount of water, be sure to use a soil probe to test its moisture level. Please adjust accordingly after using the soil probe.
