The best thing about the pool, is that it’s free to use any other time.

But folks, all I ask is that you just don’t go there to use the showers and clean yourself up during the times when our young kids are having lessons… There is a sign that says:

SHOWERS FOR SWIMMERS ONLY!

SHOWERS FOR SWIMMERS ONLY!

You can check out more information about the pool on this site.

I sure wish that they would heat the damn pool.  I hear that they have the capability to do it… but aren’t just to save electricity.

This little dragon was freezing his butt off when he got out.

  1. anyone have an email address to find out about lessons? My daughter and grandsons moved to Pahoa about 2 yrs ago and I’m doing the footwork for her to give her info about available sports in the area.

  2. Yes, the pool is great. The none eater water is actually perfect as its for lap swimmers. You just need to move a little, then you appreciate the water temp.

  5. Hi Damon, Ididn’t use your pics because Pepsi ha a rule that everyone in the pics has to sign that it’s ok to use their picture. I didn’t get in as the first 1,000 on June 1, 2010, will be trying again on July 1, 2010 in which case the voting would start August 1, to August 31, 2010 for one month. To register to vote go to http://www.refresheverything.com. Would appreciate all the help I can get from your readers to vote for my $250,000 Pepsi Refresh grant .The purpose of the grant is to put in solar water heaters at Hilo and Pahoa pool and photovoltaic system in the future, subisdize the Free Bus and to supply hygiene items to the shelters and churches that are feeding the hungry now. Once you are registered you can vote 10 times a day but only once for any one idea. I figure I will need 1,000 plus votes a day for 30 days to get the grant. Please let me know via email if I have your vote and friends and family votes. If you can give me a number I can see how many more votes I’ll need to win. Thank you and aloha. Look for us in August for voting. I iwill keep you and your readers posted as I know more. Aloha, Nani

  6. I’m applying for a $250,000 grant from Pepsi Refresh to provide hot showers at the Pahoa and Hilo pools, subsidize the free Bus and to provide hygiene items to the Salvation Army and churches that feed the hungry. Could I use two of your pool photos to attach to my grant? Information for the grant process can be found at http://www.pepsirefresh.com. If I am confirmed as one of the first 1,000 grants received, the voting would start July 1, 2010. The grant request with the most votes gets the grant. I will let you know as I know more. Thank you for helping to get the word out to your readers so they can register and vote daily to kokua this cause. We have 30 days from July 1st to get 30,000 plus votes in order to get the grant.Aloha,

  7. I go there 6-8 times a month to lap swim and do some other water exercises. It’s really a great pool for the community. Craig, Mark, and the rest of the lifeguard staff are friendly and very attentive to everyone’s safety. Great facilities and much needed warm showers available as it does get a bit chilly at times. They really should heat it if they can.

    My main concern is in the parking lot, where loiterers do a bit more than just eat their lunches under the trees. I’m constantly double-checking the locks on the doors of my truck. Otherwise, a great place to get some exercise or to cool off during the summer months.

  8. Two things that bug me about the Pahoa pool (I also take my toddler there).

    First, even though there is a toddler pool, you can only use it during the recreational swim hours. So, during the summer mornings when the big pool is adult lap only, you cannot take the keiki to the kiddie pool. I really don’t get why that is. The afternoon hours really don’t work out for us – naptime and all.

    Secondly, I wish they weren’t so totally strict about NO FOREIGN OBJECTS in the pool. The little ones really get motivated trying to reach for a rubber duck or similar, and other pools do allow them. In Pahoa no objects whatsoever are allowed in either pool.

  9. Great that we have this facility for community use, especially during these hot summer months.
    Good post with helpful reminders. Thanks Damon.
