Few things look more inviting than a shimmering blue pool on a sweltering summer afternoon. If you’re fortunate enough to rent in an apartment community in Carmel that grants access to this treasured amenity, you have to make the most of every trip. To extract the absolute most of every pool day, here are the premiere points to know for your apartment swimming pool in Carmel.

A Pool Will Elevate Your Apartment Living Experience

A beautiful pool makes life in your Carmel apartment community even more convenient. If you have fun swimming or reading by the pool, you’re free to enjoy any time during pool hours. You can make friends with neighbors in the sunshine. Swimming is an excellent exercise if you’re trying to shed some pounds or stay in shape. And that bright clear water adds to your neighborhood’s visual appeal.

Always Have Your Pool Pass

Ensure you have what you need to unlock the pool prior to getting into your new sun hat!. Nearly all apartment neighborhoods issue a pool pass, code, or access key to Residents. This means only paying Residents and a limited number of their guests can use the pool, not any passers-by. So if you are thinking of swimming this summer, drop by the leasing office at the onset of the season. Be sure to remember, don’t share your pool key with unauthorized guests and non-Residents.

The Pool Is Better With The Essentials

Avoid having to walk back and forth to your apartment, don’t forget to place these necessities in a duffle bag or backpack. Reference this quick list of must-haves for your Carmel apartment swimming pool:

  • Fluffy beach towel
  • Goggles
  • Refillable water bottle -- no glass please!
  • Waterproof sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Your favorite sandals

Leave desirable items like a purse, wallets, watches, and rings at home. Thought it is tough going anywhere without your phone. If you choose to pack it, try to conceal it under your towel when you dive into the water. This serves to both safeguard your device from wandering eyes and make it so you don’t forget it when you leave.

Your Carmel Apartment Swimming Pool Has Rules -- Follow Them

Pool rules don’t exist to keep you from your enjoyment. Apartment neighborhoods have rules about pool attire, food and drinks, antics, substance use, pool capacity, weather closures, and sometimes more. These rules exist to support you, other guests, and pool furnishings. Without them, guests risk serious injury.

Keep in mind the unwritten rules of basic courtesy. Playing loud music, hogging chairs, and leaving trash around will annoy fellow tenants. Be polite and stick to the rules so all guests can enjoy a fun time in the water this summer.

You Are Responsible For Your Personal Health And Safety

The majority of apartment complexes do not hire lifeguards. A couple of places employ lifeguards, but ultimately, you’re still the one has to look out for your safety. Typically, you’ll see a posted poster that community management is not liable for accidents, injuries, or lost property.

You’ll have a a lot more fun at the pool when you keep yourself safe. So wear plenty of sunscreen. Stay hydrated. Wear proper footwear when at the pool. Avoid the water with a fresh wound. Know your limits as a swimmer. And don’t bring your valuables. Some neighborhoods offer access to lockers, sunscreen, water bottles and more pool items during those weekend afternoons you spend poolside.
