Pool Management and Control

Atlantic Pool Service, Inc. is the pool management company for the 2024 pool season. The pool manager functions as the agent of the LVCA Board of Directors and is responsible for operating the pool in a safe, hygienic and orderly manner, supervising all personnel, and enforcing all rules and regulations. The pool manager is authorized to make on-the-spot decisions regarding all rules and regulations, as well as their enforcement. This authority includes the expulsion or exclusion of any resident or guest as necessary. Any expulsion or exclusion will be reported in writing to the LVCA Board of Directors within 24 hours of the action.

Pool Rules

The following rules are designed for your protection and safety. The Pool Committee has attempted to keep them short, simple and clear. Ultimately, however, we rely on your good judgment and consideration for the rights of other residents. Keep the pool safe, clean and enjoyable for everyone — observe these rules and see that ALL members of your household and your guests do, too. You are fully responsible for the activities of your children at the pool. Be sure that they obey the rules and the instructions of all pool management staff members.

The careful observance of these rules by the residents will keep our pool in compliance with Fairfax County regulations and the provisions of our insurance coverage. Violations of Fairfax County regulations can lead to immediate closing of the facility. Unannounced inspections by County officials will take place on a frequent basis. All residents use the pool at their own risk and are liable for any property damage incurred by themselves or their guests. The pool management staff and LVCA are not responsible for loss of personal property.

CHILDREN

  • A responsible person age 18 or older must supervise children under age 12 at all times. Should pool management deem it necessary for the safety of a child, a basic swim test will be given by the pool manager or his/her designee.
