Request for Sanitary Inspection of Swimming Pools
magie - Wednesday, Jul 10, 2013, 4:09 PMOur swimming pools have become green and slimy, roughly six months after being drained, regrouted and refilled.
The Olympic size swimming pool remained green despite numerous chlorine treatments:
The west kiddie pool is still unusable due to Tower 2 construction. Dirt has accumulated in the stagnant water:
Here's a closer shot a couple of days later:
We requested CBRE and SosaJB to replace the water since the pools have become virtually unusable. Residents who took the chance of swimming in the green waters later complained about sore eyes, skin diseases and diarrhea. Both former and current property managers maintained that the water is clean and that swimming pools are normally drained only once every two years. "Mas madumi pa ang bagong palit na tubig" was a statement the we could not take. We decided to request for sanitary inspection with the help of unit owners connected to the Quezon City Health Department. Below is our request as drafted by Ryan Estevez:

Re: Request for Sanitary Inspection of Grass Residences Condominium Swimming Pools
Dear Dr. Inumerable,
For and in behalf of the Grass Residences Homeowners, we would like to request your good office to conduct a sanitary inspection of the swimming pools at Grass Residences Condominium, Brgy. Sto. Cristo, Quezon City. This request is due to some complaints of the residents allegedly acquiring some illnesses upon contact with the waters of the swimming pool besides the glaring fact that the waters in the pool are already green in color. As far as we can remember, the waters of the pools had not been replaced from the time it was last filled-up on the months before the summer season.
Again, this is our home and our hard-earned money, too. We cannot just seat on our side and see our children suffering from the illnesses that may be acquired from unsanitary swimming pools. From its appearance too, we cannot just dip into the pool to enjoy the amenities which were, for most of us, the very reason that convinced us to invest in this property. We just hope that your agency, which was tasked to implement the sanitary rules and regulations of this city, would extend its valuable service for the well-being of our residents.
Again, we would like to ask for your indulgence if you find this request too much to be acted upon. Thank you very much.
For and in behalf of the Grass Residences Homeowners,
ATTY. RYAN L. ESTEVEZ, MARE, MPP
