What You Need To Know About Your Apartment Swimming Pool In Indianapolis

September 14, 2021

During the heat of the summer, a clean pool becomes a retreat for the whole family. If you’re blessed enough to rent in an apartment community in Indianapolis that grants access to this treasured amenity, you should make the most of every trip. To get the utmost of every pool trip, here are a few things to remember about your apartment swimming pool in Indianapolis.

A Pool Does Liven Up Your Apartment Living Experience

A pristine pool can make living in your Indianapolis apartment community even more convenient. If you like swimming or reading by the pool, the world is your oyster any time within pool hours. Build friendships with neighbors at the pool. Swimming is a stellar exercise if you’re trying to shed some pounds or stay in shape. And that bright clean water benefits your neighborhood’s visual allure.

Don’t Forget Your Pool Pass

Ensure you have what you need to unlock the pool before putting on your new swimsuit!. Nearly all apartment communities distribute a pool pass, code, or door key to Tenants. This allows only paying Residents and a small number of their guests can get into the pool, not any passers-by. So when you are thinking of swimming this summer, head to the main office at the start of the summer. Always remember, please refrain from sharing your pool pass with unauthorized guests and non-Residents.

The Pool Is More Fun With These Items

Unless you want to take trips back and forth to your unit, remember to pack these essentials in a tote bag or backpack. Reference this quick list of must-haves for your Indianapolis apartment swimming pool:

  • Large beach towel
  • Swimming goggles
  • Water tumbler -- no glass please!
  • Waterproof sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Comfortable sandals

Leave desirable items like a purse, wallets, watches, and rings at home. It might be tricky going to the pool without your phone. If you opt to bring it, make sure to stick it under your bag when you take a dip in the waves. This will both protect your smart phone from wandering eyes and help make sure you don’t leave it when you head home.

Your Indianapolis Apartment Swimming Pool Has Rules For Your Benefit

Pool rules aren’t just to keep you from your day. Apartment communities have rules about pool clothes, food and drinks, rowdiness, substance use, pool capacity, weather closures, and others. These rules are in place to care for you, other guests, and pool equipment. Without them, someone could experience serious injury.

And don’t forget the unwritten rules of common courtesy. Blaring loud music, stealing chairs, and leaving trash around will irritate fellow tenants. Be polite and adhere to the rules so all guests can experience a great time at the pool this summer.

You Are Responsible For Your Personal Health And Safety

Most apartment complexes do not employ lifeguards. A couple of apartment communities hire lifeguards, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t still responsible for your well-being. Typically, you can see a posted announcement that apartment management is not liable for accidents, injuries, or theft.

You’ll have a much better experience at the pool when you avoid injury. Apply plenty of sunscreen. Stay hydrated. Wear proper footwear outside of the pool. Stay out of the water with an open wound. Don’t push your limits as a swimmer. And don’t bring your valuables. Some communities will provide you with lockers, sunscreen, water bottles and more pool gear during those weekend afternoons you spend by the pool.
