Pool & Spa Cover

In Green Valley, we can go from below freezing in the morning to 70s and 80s by afternoon. To reduce heating costs for our HOA, during the winter months the pool is covered in late afternoon and uncovered during the day. 

The general rule is that if daytime highs are forecast to be below 60 degrees, pool volunteers should keep the pool covered. Other factors, such as wind and time of day can also play into the decision to cover or not. For example, if the daytime high is forecast to be 62 degrees but with high winds, the pool may remain covered. Or, the pool may remain covered in the morning for cold weather but uncovered later in the day as the temperature warms. 

If you wish to use the pool or spa and find them covered, you may uncover, then recover when you are done or, if the temperature has risen, leave the pool uncovered. The pool/spa will not be closed but will remain available for the use of residents.

The Legends’ pool is a shared community asset with responsibility to cover/uncover the pool and spa shared by both pool volunteers and pool users using their best judgement to reduce our operational costs.



Pool Sweeper:

Please note:  We do not want anyone taking the pool sweeper in or out of the pool. Only those who have been trained to operate the vacuum system will put the vacuum in and take it out.  Thank you for your cooperation!

Guidelines for Private Use of the Pool Area

The Pool Committee, in an attempt to establish guidelines for pool use, wishes to emphasize the concept of being ‘neighborhood friendly’ as the pool is owned and cared for by the property owners of The Legends. We want to preserve the quality of the pool facility while ensuring that all property owners, renters and tenants of The Legends have access to the pool.

Property owners and tenants in The Legends HOA are allowed to use The Legends community pool facility during any “private” or “Legends Community” party.
When a property owner of The Legends wishes to host a party at the pool, the pool committee recommends the following:
1. To minimize the possibility of scheduling conflicts, please visit the Legends HOA Website (http://www.legendshoa.org), and check the “Events” calendar for other pool events that may be scheduled. Contact the pool chairperson to schedule.
2. Place a sign on the door of the pool indicating a party is in progress.
3. For safety reasons, limit the size of the party to 40 people (maximum). The size of the pool parking lot is limited. Please ask your guests to carpool in order to keep the number of cars to a minimum.
4. If there are children 14 and under using the swimming pool and/or spa, the requesting property owner must assign an adult the responsibility to monitor the pool/spa areas.
5. Private pool parties should be for ‘occasional’ special events (birthdays, anniversaries) and not a regularly scheduled event, such as the monthly Legends Community Potluck.
6. Residents who host a pool party assume the responsibility for cleaning up the pool area when the party is finished. Cleaning includes washing tables, stacking chairs, cleaning the bathroom area and removing the trash from the pool area. If it is necessary to use the pool garbage cans, make sure the garbage cans are pulled out to the street for collection on the morning of trash pickup and returned to the pool after collection occurs.
We are proud of the pool facility and encourage all residents of The Legends to use it. It is a great asset to the neighborhood. Have fun and enjoy it!
