My family belongs to Hommocks pool in Mamaroneck/ Larchmont for the summer. I have been trying to get the heat turned on for the big indoor pool. First the recreation department told me
that it was switched off because of construction but when I kept checking with them to see when it would be turned on…they directed me to the buildings department (school). The head of that department told me they never turn on the heat in the summer and that the pool is 82.5 degrees!!! funny I told him. I took my thermometer to it and it reads 72 degrees.
I pay over $30,000 a year in taxes…..I joined the pool for $475/year and I pay for 4 kids to have lessons in a pool that is too cold to learn how to swim. I have had to pull my 5 year old twins out after 15 minutes because their lips have turned blue and are shivering like crazy. All the swim instructors wear wet suits………I don’t think they would do that in 82.5 degrees.
Hoping this story can get some air. I am trying to take it a step up to the Superintendent of building services….and I have collected 70 signatures from other people at the pool.
Maddening that they are just lying to us….at least they should admit the temperature of the pool.
—theLoop will check into this.
