A pristine pool makes life in your Bloomington apartment community even more convenient. If you like swimming or sunbathing poolside, you’re free to enjoy any time during pool hours. Forge relationships with neighbors by the water. Swimming is a fantastic exercise if you’re trying to shed some pounds or stay in shape. And that bright clean water adds to your neighborhood’s visual charm.

Don’t Forget Your Pool Pass

Before you slip on your swimsuit, be sure you can unlock the pool. Nearly all apartment communities distribute a pool pass, code, or access key to Residents. This allows only community members and a limited number of their guests can use the pool, not any passers-by. So when you want to swim this summer, drop by the leasing office at the start of the summer. And remember, please refrain from sharing your pool key with unattended guests and non-Residents.

The Swimming Pool Is Always Better With These Items

Don’t waste time having to walk back and forth to your unit, remember to place these essentials in a hand bag or backpack. Check out a quick list of must-haves for your Bloomington apartment swimming pool:

  • Comfy beach towel
  • Swimming goggles
  • Plastic water bottle -- no glass please!
  • Waterproof sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Your favorite sandals

Leave snatchable things like a purse, wallets, watches, and necklaces at at your abode. But it’s impractical going out and about without your phone. If you opt to grab it, make sure to to hide it under your chair when you dive into the pool. This will both guard your device from wandering eyes and ensure you don’t forget it when you leave.

Your Bloomington Apartment Swimming Pool Has Rules -- Follow Them

Pool rules aren’t just to limit your day. Apartment communities have rules about pool clothes, food and drinks, rowdiness, substance use, pool capacity, weather closures, and and others. These rules are to support you, other guests, and pool furnishings. In their absence, guests risk serious injury.

Keep in mind the unwritten rules of every day courtesy. Blasting loud music, hogging chairs, and littering will annoy fellow residents. Be kind and follow the rules so all guests can have a great time at the pool this summer.

You Are Responsible For Your Personal Health And Safety

Most apartment complexes don’t staff lifeguards. A couple of places staff lifeguards, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t still responsible for your well-being. Commonly, you’ll see a posted notice that community 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. Avoid the water with an open wound. Stick to your limits as a swimmer. And don’t bring your valuables. Some neighborhoods will provide you with lockers, sunscreen, water bottles and more pool gear during those weekend afternoons you spend by the water.
