Appreciate our lifeguards

Our lifeguards do a great deal to maintain a safe environment, work behind the scenes to keep the pool open, and explain the rules patiently each and every day on a, well, student’s salary. And then there’s the lifesaving training they spend hours receiving. Next time you see one, consider thanking them for their hard work.

Important Safety ALERT: Heart Rate Monitors

IMPORTANT SAFETY ALERT:  Swimmers with heart rate monitors or other electronic medical devices should NOT use the pool until further notice

I was informed that a pool patron with a heart monitoring device (model listed below) was contacted by the service that monitors their device after seeing three “episodes” on one day. Those times appear to correspond with when this individual was swimming at the pool. It was the first time this individual has been in the pool this summer.

The device representative suggested it may be a grounding issue with pool lights and cautioned this individual to not swim in the pool until we have it tested.

Out of an abundance of caution all individuals with heart monitoring devices or any type of medical device that may be impacted by electrical current or any other peripheral factors related to the swimming pool and/or the swimming pool water and/or surrounding swimming pool areas should not swim until further notice.

While this is the first case we have been made aware of this year we are going to have the electrical and bonding tested ASAP. We have spoken with our pool contractor and operator about appropriate next steps. We will keep you informed about the results of the testing.

Lastly, we have not done anything to the pool since we opened. If anyone has experienced similar reports from heart monitoring devices please contact me ASAP.

Thank you,

Iain Gold
President, Rock Creek Pool

This Week @ Rock Creek: August 3, 2018: Welcome August Families!

CALENDAR. Check out the pool calendar for hours of operation & events.

  • NOTE: Happy Hour to Welcome August Families — Friday, Aug. 3 — 6-8pm

WELCOME AUGUST FAMILIES!

Welcome to our new (and returning) families who have swim privileges starting in August! Hope to see you tonight for the Happy Hour  (6-8pm). It’s an informal poolside get together. We hope you’ll come by.

Please glance through the rules for the pool so you know what to expect. They are long, but there’s a lot of white space between paragraphs so hopefully it’s easy to see. Want to bring a party (more than 10 people!) to the pool? Sounds great, but we need to know in advance. It can at times mean we need another guard at the pool. Please check out the section on parties for more details and how to send in your request.

FRONT STEPS REPAIRED

You may have noticed some shifting of the top section of the front steps leading to the Front Desk. Earlier this week those steps were reinforced and repaired.
