If you’re blessed enough to rent in an apartment community in Lafayette that grants access to this treasured addition, you ought to make the most of every trip.

A pristine pool does make life in your Lafayette apartment community even better. If you like swimming or reading poolside, the world is your oyster any time within pool hours. You can make friends with neighbors at the pool. Swimming is an excellent fitness activity if you’re working to drop some weight or stay in shape. And that bright blue water benefits your neighborhood’s visual appeal.

Remember Your Pool Pass

Before you get your swimsuit, be sure you can unlock the pool. Nearly all apartment communities distribute a pool pass, code, or access key to community members. This ensures only paying Residents and a small number of their friends can access the pool, not the general public. So when you want to swim this summer, head to the front office at the onset of the summer. Be sure to remember, try not to give your pool pass with unattended guests and non-Residents.

The Swimming Pool Is Always Better With The Essentials

Unless you want to take trips back and forth to your unit, remember to place these essentials in a hand bag or backpack. Check out a quick list of essentials for your Lafayette apartment swimming pool:

  • Comfy beach towel
  • Goggles
  • Water tumbler -- no glass please!
  • Waterproof sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Flip flop sandals

Leave desirable items like a purse, wallets, watches, and rings at your apartment. But it’s tough going anywhere without your phone. If you opt to pack it, try to stick it under your chair when you dive into the pool. This serves to both protect your smart phone from intrusive eyes and help make sure you don’t forget it when you leave.

Your Lafayette Apartment Swimming Pool Has Rules -- Follow Them

Pool rules aren’t just to stop your fun. Apartment communities have rules about pool attire, food and drinks, running and horseplay, substance use, pool capacity, weather closures, and sometimes more. These rules are to protect you, other guests, and pool furnishings. In their absence, someone could experience serious injury.

Bear in mind the unwritten rules of basic courtesy. Playing loud music, stealing chairs, and littering will bother fellow tenants. Be kind and stick to the rules so all guests can experience a great time swimming this summer.

You Look Out For Your Personal Health And Safety

Many apartment neighborhoods don’t employ lifeguards. Some places staff lifeguards, but at the end of the day, you’re still in charge for your safety. In fact, you can see a posted announcement that community management is not liable for accidents, injuries, or lost property.

Staying safe is biggest priority for all trips to the pool.. Slather on appropriate amounts of sunscreen. Drink liquids. Wear proper footwear outside of the pool. Avoid the water with an open wound. Don’t push your limits as a swimmer. And leave valuables at home. Some facilities offer access to lockers, sunscreen, water bottles and more pool gear during those hot days you spend by the water.
