If you’re blessed enough to live in an apartment community in Indianapolis that offers this exquisite addition, you have to take full advantage of it.

A beautiful pool makes staying in your Indianapolis apartment community even better. 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 by the water. Swimming is an excellent whole-body workout if you’re aiming to lose weight or stay in shape. And that inviting clean water lends to your neighborhood’s visual charm.

Don’t Forget Your Pool Pass

Before you get your flip-flops, make sure you can access the pool. The majority of apartment complexes issue a pool pass, code, or access key to Tenants. This means only paying Residents and a handful of of their guests can use the pool, not the general public. So when you are thinking of swimming this summer, head to the leasing office at the start of the summer. Always remember, try not to give your pool code with unauthorized guests and non-Residents.

The Pool Is Better With These Items

Unless you want to run back and forth to your unit, don’t forget to place these necessities in a duffle bag or backpack. Reference this quick list of essentials for your Indianapolis apartment swimming pool:

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

Leave valuables like a purse, wallets, watches, and rings at your apartment. It might be impractical going out and about without your phone. If you opt to bring it, try to hide it under your bag when you take a swim in the waves. This ought to both protect your phone from prying eyes and make it so you don’t leave it when you leave.

Your Indianapolis Apartment Swimming Pool Has Rules For A Reason

Pool rules aren’t there to keep you from your fun. Apartment communities have rules about pool dress, food and drinks, running and horseplay, substance use, pool capacity, weather closures, and more. These rules exist to protect you, other guests, and pool furnishings. Without them, people could experience serious injury.

Bear in mind the common sense rules of every day courtesy. Playing loud music, taking all the chairs, and tossing trashing everywhere will irritate fellow tenants. Be kind and adhere to the rules so everyone can have a pleasant time in the water this summer.

You Need To Manage Your Personal Health And Safety

Many apartment neighborhoods do not employ lifeguards. A few apartment communities staff lifeguards, but at the end of the day, you’re still in charge for your safety. Commonly, you will probably see a posted notice that apartment management is not responsible for accidents, injuries, or theft.

Staying safe is biggest priority for each trip to the pool.. Apply lots of sunscreen. Drink liquids. Dress in proper footwear when at the pool. Avoid the water with a fresh wound. Know your limits as a swimmer. And leave valuables at home. Some communities will provide you with lockers, sunscreen, water bottles and more pool items during those hot days you spend by the water.
