Five Rules You Should Follow at Your Apartment Swimming Pool

Do you love spending time at your community swimming pool in your apartment complex?  Spending an afternoon sunbathing by the pool or swimming laps to get some exercise is a great way to enjoy the amenities offered at your apartments for rent in Ft Myers, FL.  You've likely seen the safety signs displayed on the fences and walls around the pool, but you want to be sure that you follow the rules to allow for the best swimming environment.  Nothing is worse than someone who disrupts the entire apartment swimming pool by breaking the rules.  There are some rules you should always follow when you are enjoying your apartment swimming pool.

Rinse Off First

Make sure to take the time to rinse off before you jump in the shared apartment pool.  Rinsing off the impurities, such as sweat, dirt, and sand, will help to keep the community pool cleaner.  It is also a way to reduce waterborne illnesses, such as swimmer's ear.

Reduce, or Stop, Your Splashing

Swimming in a shared swimming pool can be crowded at times, which means that you'll want to find your own space.  It also means that you should minimize your splashing, because many people do not enjoy getting water splashed on them.  Those who are sunbathing or lounging by the pools may actually want to stay dry.  Splashing can also result in a loss of water, which can cost the apartment complex money over time, especially during a drought.

Look Around Before Jumping In

Jumping into a nice, refreshing swimming pool may be just what you are looking to do.  However, you always want to look around the entire pool and area around the pool before taking the big leap.  This ensures that you won't jump on top of any swimmers and you won't disturb any loungers.

Stay in Your Lane

When you are swimming laps around the pool during the less crowded times in the day, always be sure to stay in your own lane.  Other people may also be interested in exercising, so mind them during your own workout.  Wear goggles so that you can see underwater if anyone else happens to join the pool during your exercise regimen.

Get Out to Use the Bathroom

It may be a pain to dry off and trudge up to your apartment to go to the bathroom, or even just use the community restroom in your complex, but it is a much better alternative to going to the bathroom while in the pool.  In fact, you should always get out of the pool to tend to your bathroom needs.  This is polite and also encourages proper hygiene, which is critical in shared spaces.

These are some of the basic rules you should follow when you are swimming at your apartment's community pool.  Because this is a shared space, you want to treat it with respect.  At our apartments for rent in Ft Myers, FL, you can enjoy the swimming pool amenity all year long.  Contact us to hear about many of our other luxurious amenities today.
