Shoreline Pool closed for maintenance

Friday, May 10, 2013

Notice from Parks and Recreation

The Shoreline Pool will be closed beginning Saturday, May 11 for a minimum of one week due to a boiler failure.  Our 42 year old pool has received a high level of maintenance over the years to meet the needs of hundreds of thousands of swimmers who have enjoyed the pool since its opening in 1971. At long last the boiler finally got tired.  We are working to secure a new energy efficient boiler as quickly as possible and get it installed, but the closure of at least a week is needed to do the work and get the water reheated for your swimming enjoyment.

We will update the schedule on the City of Shoreline website as additional information becomes available.  We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to seeing you back at the pool soon.  If you have questions please contact us at 206-801-2650 ext. 4.

And the City of Shoreline did not anticipate this failure? The mean time before failure is easily acquired for every component, it should have been provided to the City Council in the Capital Improvement Budget Request -- but the roll over and die city council that just rubber stamps whatever the city staff tells them will let the staff skate. I'll tell you this much, the City of Seattle would not have let a critical component go 42 years without replacement, but the idiot staff running City Hall would and they think they can run the water supply for Seattle Public Utilities. And my proof? Helene Madison Pool was built at the same time as the Shoreline Pool but the City of Seattle replaced it BEFORE IT FAILED. Need I say more, Shoreline residents can't use their pool until such time until they can fix their pool, however, Helene Madison by Ingraham High School is still in service because the City of Seattle Parks & Recreation did the proactive maintenance.
