Some Lodi City Council members are frustrated with the amount of money being spent to repair the pool at Hutchins Street Square. The council unanimously approved a contract to upgrade the pool’s 25-year-old filtration system at its Wednesday night meeting, but not before asking if it was time to replace the entire thing.

“The pool at Hutchins Street Square appears to me to just have continual problems,” Councilman Bob Johnson said. “Continual and expensive problems.”

    In addition, I am hoping that they have included new pumps in this amount allocated for repairs, because that is the way they would reduce energy usage. The items listed for replacement in the article are not going to save on energy usage, only possibly chlorine consumption. We recently installed new heaters and a gas line for an Olympic sized pool for a fraction of what they have set aside for a heater (boiler?).

    Being in the pool industry for almost 20 years, I cannot understand why they City would choose to replace the pool filtration and sanitation system with one of such high cost, and one that will cost more to maintain in the future.

    Thank you Joanne, yes we need the pool, seniors and everyone. I can't wait for the new filter system and hopefully less chlorine in the pool. Yes the pool takes maintenance, so does the house we live in. It's my guess that Bob Johnson does not use the pool, but one day the doctor will say, you need low impact exercise for your heart! Keep up the good work Joanne.
    Thank you, Kathy Burke
