Pool Sanitation: Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark maintains a minimum level of 2 parts per million (ppm) of chlorine in all of our pools, and 3 ppm in our hot tubs (Health Department minimum requirement is 1 ppm). Once water enters our filtration system, it is passed through ultraviolet (UV) chambers as a supplemental sanitation step. The use of UV has been proven very effective in eliminating any biological matter, including viruses that may be in the water. After thoroughly filtering and sanitizing the water, chlorine is reintroduced before being sent back into the pool.
In addition, all Avalanche Bay pools are monitored 24 hours-a-day with a state-of-the-art computer system. This system measures our pH and chlorine levels, and doses the pools with chlorine if levels dip below acceptable levels. To assure proper operation, our maintenance staff, consisting of NSPF Certified Pool Operators manually test each of our pools three times daily (minimum Health Department requirement is 1 test per day). This helps us to assure the computer systems are accurate, and if necessary, allows us to recalibrate and/or adjust any levels as needed.
Hard Surfaces: The Avalanche Bay facility receives a deep cleaning every night after closing. Floors and locker rooms are cleaned with a spray foam disinfectant to remove any dirt or bacteria that may be present. Public Space Attendants have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting in public spaces, with a focus on door handles, lockers, tables, public restrooms, and kiosk counters.
Air: Avalanche Bay's air handling system consists of six large units designed to consistently treat our air quality. Each unit filters, heats, and dehumidifies the air as it is recycled through the waterpark. The process of dehumidifying is notably important as it helps to eliminate any contaminants that may be present.
