Bubble Up Information

Questions have been raised regarding Bubble air quality


According to Bob McDowell, the YMCA CEO:

  • 100 % outside air is circulated through the ventilation system in the bubble as well as in every area of the Y including the 25 yd pool.
  • There is no recirculated air.
  • HVAC is using outside air as recommended by the CDC.
  • For families that are new to the Wahoos, the bubble was replaced last year and the exchange unit was replaced this summer.  As the weather gets cooler, the water temperature and the air temperature will be maintained.
