  2. I remember back when I was in competitive swimming and we would compete in what was then the socorro aquatic center, and couldnt help to think how nice and spacious the lockerroom/showers were. So hopefully the same is expected for this pool.

  3. Pool pH & Pool Alkalinity The pH and Alkalinity levels of swimming pool water affect many areas of the swimming pool and must be kept at the correct levels if you expect to successfully maintain your swimming pool. CHRISTOPHER
