Original post: The east and west pools will be heated in October and November, the center pool in December and January, and all three pools in February through April.
UPDATE: 2/7/23: The center pool was heated for December-January a little late because of the need to complete a gas line repair, and we have left it heated for the first few weeks of February.
The HOA board had decided in August 2022, based on input from homeowners, to heat all three pools in February through April, although possibly not all to the same temperature. With the sharp rise in natural gas prices and the recent cold, the current board decided to revisit the new plan at its Feb. 21, 2023 meeting after it reviews the January gas bill. The initial heating of a pool is a major expense.
UPDATE: 2/21/23: After reviewing how far over budget the Association has been this winter on gas and electric bills, the Board voted to leave the heat on for the already-heated center pool and not heat the east and west pools this season.
All three spas should be at the proper temperature now, after repairs were made.
