During the heat of the summer, a big, blue pool is a haven for the entire family. If you’re fortunate enough to reside in an apartment community in Carmel that grants access to this wonderful feature, you should make the most of the chance. To extract the most of your pool trip, here are the best tips to remember about your apartment swimming pool in Carmel.

A Pool Will Elevate Your Apartment Living Experience

A pristine pool can make staying in your Carmel apartment community even more enjoyable. If you enjoy swimming or sunbathing in a deck chair, you can go any time within pool hours. Forge relationships with neighbors at the pool. Swimming is a stellar exercise if you’re trying to drop some weight or stay in shape. Don’t forget that a pool adds a luxurious flair to any community..

Always Have Your Pool Pass

Ensure you have the means to get into the pool prior to donning your new sun hat!. Nearly all apartment neighborhoods issue a pool pass, code, or door key to Tenants. This means only tenants and a limited number of their friends can use the pool, not just anyone. So when you plan on swimming this summer, drop by the front office at the onset of the pool season. Always remember, please refrain from sharing your pool pass with unauthorized guests and non-Residents.

The Pool Is Always Better With These Items

Don’t waste time having to walk back and forth to your unit, don’t forget to place these necessities in a duffle bag or backpack. Here’s a quick list of necessities for your Carmel apartment swimming pool:

  • Fluffy beach towel
  • Goggles
  • Water tumbler -- no glass please!
  • Waterproof sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Comfortable sandals

Leave desirable items like a purse, wallets, watches, and necklaces at at your abode. It might be tricky going to the pool without your phone. If you opt to grab it, make sure to hide it under your towel when you dive into the waves. This serves to both safeguard your smart phone from prying eyes and help make sure you don’t forget it when you depart.

Your Carmel Apartment Swimming Pool Has Rules For Your Benefit

Pool rules don’t exist to stop your enjoyment. Apartment communities have rules about pool clothes, food and drinks, antics, substance use, pool capacity, weather closures, and others. These rules are in place to protect you, other guests, and pool equipment. If they weren’t there, guests could suffer serious injury.

Keep in mind the common sense rules of every day courtesy. Blasting loud music, taking all the chairs, and tossing trashing everywhere will bother fellow tenants. Be polite and follow the rules so all guests can enjoy a great time swimming this summer.

You Look Out For Your Personal Health And Safety

Most apartment complexes don’t employ lifeguards. A couple of places employ lifeguards, but ultimately, you’re still the one has to look out for your safety. In fact, you can see a posted poster that community management is not responsible for accidents, injuries, or theft.

Safety is biggest priority for every single trip to the pool.. Apply lots of sunscreen. Drink liquids. Dress in proper footwear when at the pool. Stay out of the water with a fresh wound. Stick to your limits as a swimmer. And don’t bring your valuables. Some facilities allow you access to lockers, sunscreen, water bottles and more pool items during those hot days you spend by the pool.
