Before you slip on your flip-flops, make sure you can unlock the pool. Nearly all apartment neighborhoods distribute a pool pass, code, or access key to community members. This allows only tenants and a small number of their friends can access the pool, not just anyone. So if you want to swim this summer, drop by the leasing office at the onset of the summer. Always remember, please refrain from sharing your pool pass with unattended guests and non-Residents.

The Pool Is More Fun With These Things

Pool rules aren’t there to keep you from your day. Apartment communities have rules about pool dress, food and drinks, running and horseplay, substance use, pool capacity, weather closures, and others. These rules are in place to care for you, other guests, and pool furnishings. Without them, someone risk serious injury.

Keep in mind the unwritten rules of common courtesy. Blasting loud music, hogging chairs, and tossing trashing everywhere will annoy fellow residents. Be kind and stick to the rules so everyone can have a great time in the water this summer.

The majority of apartment communities do not employ lifeguards. A few apartment communities staff lifeguards, but ultimately, you’re still the one has to look out for your well-being.

Stick to your limits as a swimmer. And don’t bring your valuables.
