Pool problems not residents’ fault
I recently read about the Southridge pool sinking, and seemingly
incorrect construction done by the company that poured the pool.
After reading the article I noticed the typical government
finger-pointing already going on, and the ridiculous cost
associated with fixing the problem. Let’s break down the facts so
that everyone reading this can understand where the real problems
are, shall we?
First off, I am wondering who was in the committee that hired
the construction, without getting some type of warranty to protect
the people of the Highlands Ranch community? With concrete piers
being poured for the building around the pool, wouldn't someone
think about the concentration of weight in the pool area, and pour
supports for it as well? Second, with all the construction
companies out there, why wasn't one found that stands behind its
work enough to freely offer a guarantee of no less then 30 to 50
The pool I swam in all through high school in Evergreen has been
there over 30 years and has only needed basic maintenance. Third,
please tell me how this will be fixed without the homeowners of
Highlands Ranch having to foot the bill with the raising of the
quarterly HOA fees, which are not spent in a feasible and
conservative manner already.
Can someone step up to the plate, take responsibility for this
blunder, and tell me how Highlands Ranch residents are not going to
be the ones ultimately footing the bill when we weren't the ones
who screwed the pool up in the first place!
Please Todd Langrave, explain to me how it is the fault of the
residents of Highlands Ranch and not the construction company who
built it. Can you do that for me, Mr. Langrave?
