During the summer heat, a spacious pool is a retreat for the entire family. If you’re fortunate enough to live in an apartment community in Sylvania that grants access to this wonderful addition, you have to make the most of it. To extract the utmost of every pool experience, here are the best tips to know for your apartment swimming pool in Sylvania.

A Pool Can Enhance Your Apartment Living Experience

A gorgeous pool makes staying in your Sylvania apartment community even more enjoyable. If you have fun swimming or sunbathing in a deck chair, you can go any time within pool hours. Build friendships with neighbors by the water. Swimming is an excellent fitness activity if you’re aiming to lose weight or stay in shape. Don’t forget that a pool lends a refined touch to any community..

Always Have Your Pool Pass

Before you put on your swimsuit, check that you can get into the pool. The majority of apartment communities distribute a pool pass, code, or gate key to Residents. This means only community members and a handful of their friends can access the pool, not just anyone. So when you want to swim this summer, stop by the main office at the beginning of the season. Always remember, don’t share your pool code with unattended guests and non-Residents.

The Pool Is Always Better With These Items

Avoid having to take trips back and forth to your apartment, be sure to tuck these essentials in a hand bag or backpack. Check out a quick list of must-haves for your Sylvania apartment swimming pool:

  • Fluffy beach towel
  • Swimming goggles
  • Refillable water bottle -- no glass please!
  • Waterproof sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Comfortable sandals

Store snatchable things like a purse, wallets, watches, and rings at home. But it’s tricky going to the pool without your phone. If you do grab it, make sure to conceal it under your towel when you dive into the waves. This will both guard your smart phone from intrusive eyes and ensure you don’t forget it when you leave.

Your Sylvania Apartment Swimming Pool Has Rules For A Reason

Pool rules don’t exist to keep you from your enjoyment. Apartment communities have rules about pool attire, food and drinks, rowdiness, substance use, pool capacity, weather closures, and sometimes more. These rules are to support you, other guests, and pool furnishings. In their absence, guests could suffer serious injury.

Keep in mind the unspoken rules of basic courtesy. Playing loud music, stealing chairs, and littering will irritate fellow tenants. Be kind and follow the rules so everyone can have a great time at the pool this summer.

You Are Responsible For Your Personal Health And Safety

Many apartment complexes do not hire lifeguards. Some apartment communities staff lifeguards, but at the end of the day, you’re still the one has to look out for your safety. Typically, you will probably see a posted notice that property management is not liable for accidents, injuries, or lost property.

You’ll have a better time at the pool when you avoid injury. Slather on appropriate amounts of sunscreen. Stay hydrated. Put on proper footwear around the pool. Stay out of the water with an open wound. Don’t push your limits as a swimmer. And leave valuables at home. Some neighborhoods offer access to lockers, sunscreen, water bottles and more pool essentials during those weekend afternoons you spend by the pool.
