pool attendant?

hi, i have heard recently that if you have a pool on your complex there needs to be a turkish qualified life guard on duty at all times. this has not been my experience so far but this is possibly being used as an excuse for builder not filling the pool or wanting to cream off yet more money from us for maintenance which is not being done anyway. anyone got any info about this please.
Thanls, ged

Re: pool attendant?

Never heard from this before. With Turkish regard to Health & Safety on other matters I cannot see it as a ruling. I think it's another excuse from the Builders Book of Excuses to scam yet more money from the people on your site.

Re: pool attendant?

If it comes with a work permit, I'll take it.
Like Kev I qualified when I was a lot younger and since most Turkish pools are 1.5mts deep maximum I'll do it.

Re: pool attendant?

The pool on our complex is over 2m deep at one end and we have been told that because it's over a certain depth (I think they said 1.4m) we would need to have a lifeguard. As yet, we don't have one. The builders did say they would rectify the pool to make it less deep; no sign of that either.

As our complex is 75% turkish owned it's not a scam to cream money off foreigners.

Re: pool attendant?

I know someone that just had their pool raised to 1.49m to get their license as they were told 1,50m and deeper does need a lifegaurd
