Frequently Asked Questions

Shower floors are slippery. Do you plan to put mats?
For both the Men's and Women's Locker Rooms, mats have been placed along the shower walkway. Mats are on order for the sink areas and the locker bay walkways and will be placed as soon as they arrive.

Will you put more towel bins in the women’s locker room?
We are exploring options for additional towel bins. Currently, towel bins are located on the walkways conveniently near the exits of each locker room.  Please be considerate and drop towels off when leaving.

Where is the shaving cream that used to be in the showers?
Due to Members' concerns regarding hair and shaving cream debris left behind in shower stalls, we have discontinued offering shaving cream in individual showers.  You will find shaving cream containers located at the sink area.

Why is there less seating in the men’s and women’s sauna?
The sauna is designed to meet new ADA requirements for clearance.  As a result, this required a redesign of the space which resulted in less seating.

Why does the grout in the shower area look moldy?
The grout is cleaned regularly and is not moldy. When it gets wet it simply turns a darker color. As it dries it returns to its normal color.

The water does not drain well in the shower area. What are you doing about it?
We are aware of this issue and our construction crew is currently assessing options to improve drainage. Additional work may be done at a later time.

Why aren’t there more benches in certain areas?
We are currently assessing the need for additional seating. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

The shower heads seem lower than the previous ones. Is this correct?
Shower head installation meets current building guidelines for average height.  They are at a similar height to previous shower heads.

The pressure of the water bottle filler (near the sinks) is too strong.
These are commercial grade fillers that are intended to fill water bottles only. Please do not use the filler to fill the small plastic cups.  These cups are intended for mouthwash only.

Where are the remote controls for the locker room TVs?
We have never provided remotes for these TVs.  Each TV has a single control button on the bottom side and we encourage our members to watch the channels they prefer (with or without volume).  Push once to navigate menus, and hold the button in to cycle through the menu.
