I love these pools but had a really poor experience this weekend. As a local ratepayer not having any utility bill on me I paid $26 for myself and my 2 sons to go to our local pool. the girl at the front counter was not interested after I was unable to produce any local authentication. My so and I did something silly we swam the length of the pool under water. Yes we opened our eyes and yes they were stinging. I asked the lifeguard for first aide. Did not expect her to say just wash them out under the shower. I would have thought that they would carry a bottle of fresh water to assist? anyway off to teh shower and find after hitter the button that I now have hotter water coming out of teh shower so off to teh basin same again. Getting relly peeved by now. I would expect that if I requested first aide I would get more then a fob off. Also why does th epool penalise locals without ID please take our word for it. Is the price a deterent to visitors? pretty expensive if you camp there for a week and have to fork out money to that level?? Like I said I love the pools but a more proactive approach would be nice
