Looks like it's been a bad couple of weeks for DC pool water heaters...
Yes, check with the pool (202.724.4495) before heading over there. The manager said the pool heater, the air heater, and the filter were all not working.
This morning, they only allowed us 30 minutes before shutting down for the time being. (This allowed S Ewert to only get in about 7,000 yards...)
Fenty leaves office and all of a sudden all of the pools in DC need to be taken down for maintenance? Looks like Vincent Gray's cronies have been peeing in the pools again.
Anyone go to Eastern Market this morning?
I just called Rumsey Pool and they said that all was fixed and the pool is now open.
Good to know! Thanks
I went to Turkey Thicket (Brookland) pool last night and the water was a bit on the chilly side. Fine for lap swimming but hopefully it's not next on the list of broken heaters.
On the bright side the "faucet" that was on full blast spewing ice cold water into my lane, that pushed me into the ropes each time i swam by, was a nice OWS simulation.
Went last night - the water was definitely not cold. More sauna-like.
Just arrived at pool to find it closed again- as of 10 this morning
It was definitely back on again this morning, on high enough to simulate training for IronMan Amazonia.
It's back open! Just went for a workout. HOT HOT HOT...
