Good maintenance at an aquatic facility may be most visible in its clean, appealing environment. This is not an accident. It is done through careful attention to a planned maintenance system. Planning the day to day work, planning equipment maintenance, and planning for large maintenance projects or equipment replacement are the building blocks of effective maintenance planning. Develop the plan based on the facility and equipment while keeping an eye out for changes in legislation and current events. Good planning is all about staying one step ahead of change so an operator can have prepared options when change becomes necessary.
