Preparing the Pools for Summer – 1990

By 1990, when these photos were taken, the pools were sowing their age.  Each year there were repairs required to the concrete structure.  Since the pools were not covered during the winter they had to be drained and cleaned each spring.  Most years the pools were also painted.

The photos below show the pools in spring and the work required to prepare them for the summer.
