Aquatic Resources Network

Therapist Founded. Therapist Grounded.

Hi all aquatists, I am off and running with aquatic therapy in the east bay at the Berkeley High SChool warm pool (92 degrees, 2200 sq ft.) which is an OK facility, but old and unsafe seismically. It will be torn out and replaced in the next 2-3 years. I have two other warm pool options; one in Rossmoor, Walnut Creek, for seniors, and the George Miller Center (part of Contra Costa Co. Assoc. for Retarded Citizens in Richmond, Hilltop) for pediatrics. I have to work around their schedules with my private practice. So ultimately, I would like to build my own backyard 10x14 pool with cabana, and a retractable roof. Any ideas for capitalizing something like this on a home property? What companies would be good to research? What questions should I be asking? How much private liability insurance should I be carrying for a part-time, private, self-employed SLP aquatic therapist? I currently have 1,000,000/500,000,000 coverage. Is that enough? Hoping that you are all doing well and enjoying using the new skills. I am loving it. My blue, sprint, aqua mat is a big hit with the kiddos.

"the ion level got double the recommended level and everything turned a copper color that took 3 years to get rid of. I was new to my pool then and hadn't worked out how to use it."

"Hi Kim, May I ask what system you are using?  I'm never seen that in our systems.  Did you call their customer support?  "

"I have ionization which I found to leave blue dying if not kept at the right levels. "

"Hi Sulis, Thank you for the link to the copper article.   Yes, you have to replace the copper bars every few years and the electronic system lasts 23-27 years.  Copper is know to have health benefits (see link below) making it a healthy…"

"Yes, copper ionization is a good alternative, to say UV but there is some question about the future supply as the bars have to be replaced every 2-4 years I understand: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peak_copper.  For small pools, a copper-zinc…"

"Another alternative is copper ionization.  According to state regulations you still have to use some chlorine with copper ionization but the ppm goes down considerably from 3.0 to 0.5.  So you are using, handling, and are immersed in a lot…"
