That is the question. My five year olds go to a private swim instructor who teaches in her own backyard IG unenclosed, pool. I have spoken with her enough to know she knows very little about pools except how to teach kids to swim (she's good at that). I now she has a pool store help her with her equip and water, but I don't know any other details except she bought this house because of the pool and her desire to start this swim lesson business.
Just got a text that says: "Wanting to inform you that the pool is very cloudy today due to a filter pressure issue. The water chemicals are safe to be in so classes are still on but i wanted to inform you as I want you to be assured of my level of professionalism and safety of your children."
I'm not comfortable questioning her on what the details are (and she wouldn't have any test results anyway, I'm sure). I could ask her what chemicals she is refering to, but I think it would be uncomfortable. I'm leaning toward telling her we won't be coming today (in truth we are exhausted anyway since we came back from vacation late last night) - but if anyone thinks I'm making too much of it and should just let the kids go, please chime in. (And "No," I don't have the guts to take my own test kit over to check out just how bad (or not bad) it is).
I sure am anxious to get our own pool up so I know what they are swimming in!
