Pool Fun is a Favorite Summer Pasttime! Enjoy our Pools with these Simple Pool Rules to Ensure a Fun and Safe Summer

Pool Safety Tips for a Fun Summer Pasttime 

The Pools are open and ready to be enjoyed during the hot Summer weather. Your apartment community pool is a runner up to the beach of where most would prefer to spend their days. There is no risk of jellyfish or strong waves, but there are certain risks you should watch for this weekend at your pool. 
So to prepare you for the months ahead, here are eight pieces of advice to help you make the most of pool season before it’s too late!

As cliche as it may sound, we must remind you to keep safety first. Every pool has its own set of rules that need to be followed. They should be clearly posted in the pool area. You, your children and guests should become familiar with the rules to avoid being banned for silly things like splashing, diving or excessive cannonballing. Most importantly, never leave children in the pool unattended – not even for a quick run to the bathroom. Stay in the shallow end of the pool if you have to.

Come prepared. Life vests, towels, sunscreen, flip flops, sunglasses and a fully charged phone are a must. But bring some fun stuff, too. Foam noodles, inflatable floats and beach balls will all enhance your fun in the sun.

The pool is a common place for neighbors to chill out over the summer. So grab your beach towel and get your mingle on! Take a walk around the pool and finally introduce yourself to your neighbors. You never know who you might meet!

Play water games! Tag, Marco Polo, volleyball and racing each other are all fun ways to enjoy yourself during pool time. Play fairly, and no cheating!

Make note of where the pool drains, pipes and openings are located. Children should stay away from any parts of the pool that have suction features.

Clean up after yourself. Some pools are strict about no eating and drinking on the premises. If you happen to break this rule (which we do not encourage), at least pick up your trash and don’t leave anything behind. The pool area is a reflection of the residents and you don’t want to be the reason it looks unsightly. You know better.

Remember the old saying, “use it or lose it.” Unfortunately, pool season doesn’t last forever. In many communities, Labor Day weekend will be your last chance to take a dip until next May. If you ever find yourself bored, broke and looking for something to do, grab a towel and head down to the pool!
Happy swimming!
