Indoor pool is open, but currently unheated


Pool forecast: Warm by Thursday

Our beloved indoor pool has reopened from its recent extended closure due to an adverse December weather event. While we took advantage of the downtime to make the pool sparkle, its water has been cool because the heater is out of commission.

After looking at multiple repair options, we’ve decided to go with an upgraded system that (after delivery and installation) should see the pool made operational at the proper temperature by Thursday, February 22.

In the meantime, pool water has been hovering around 73oF. If that’s too cool for your blood, the University of Alabama at Birmingham has graciously made its pool available to LJCC members during their regular hours. All you have to do is show your LJCC membership card and sign the UAB waiver and dive in. And for those of you who are still taking a dip here at The J, just be sure to warm yourself with a hot beverage from our lobby.
