Prepare for apartment pool season with these safety tips!

As the warm weather arrives and Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer, Beechtree Apartments is excited to welcome residents to our community pool! Whether you’re a seasoned swimmer or just looking to dip your toes, ensuring everyone has a safe and enjoyable experience is our top priority. Here are some basic safety tips to remember as you dive into your apartment pool season. 

Supervise Children at All Times

Children should never be left unattended near the pool. A lifeguard is there to watch out for accidents, but they cannot keep an eye on every child at once. This is why it’s best for young kids to always go to the pool with an adult or older relative who can keep an eye on them and make sure they don’t injure themselves when swimming or walking around the pool. 

Follow Pool Rules

Our pool has specific rules designed to ensure safety for all residents. Please familiarize yourself with these guidelines, which include no running, no diving in shallow areas, and no glass containers in the pool area. Adhering to these rules helps prevent accidents and keeps the pool environment safe for everyone.

Use Proper Flotation Devices

Ensure that children and inexperienced swimmers use appropriate flotation devices. Inflatable toys are fun, but they are not substitutes for life jackets or approved flotation devices. 

Stay Hydrated and Use Sunscreen

Spending time in the sun and water can lead to dehydration. Drink plenty of water and take breaks in the shade to stay cool during your afternoon at the apartment pool. Additionally, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and reapply it every two hours or more often if you’re swimming or sweating.

Practice Good Hygiene

To maintain a healthy and clean pool environment, shower before entering the pool and don’t swim if you feel unwell. Encourage children to take regular bathroom breaks and ensure they use the restroom before swimming. Remember, changing swim diapers frequently helps keep the pool sanitary.

Avoid Alcohol While Swimming

While a cold drink by the pool might sound appealing, it’s important to avoid consuming alcohol while swimming or supervising children in the water. Alcohol impairs judgment, coordination, and reaction times, increasing the risk of accidents.

Respect the Lifeguards

Always follow the instructions of the lifeguard on duty. Lifeguards are trained to ensure safety and prevent accidents. Respecting their guidance helps keep everyone safe and allows everyone to enjoy the pool more securely.

Be Aware of Weather Conditions

Summer weather can be unpredictable. If you hear thunder or see lightning, get out of the pool immediately. Wait at least 30 minutes after the last thunderclap or lightning strike before returning to the water to ensure the storm has passed.

Have Fun and Be Considerate

Finally, remember that the pool is a shared space for all Beechtree Apartments residents. Be considerate of others by keeping noise levels down, sharing pool equipment, and cleaning up after yourself. A respectful and friendly environment ensures everyone can enjoy their time by the water.

At Beechtree Apartments, we’re committed to providing a safe and enjoyable apartment pool experience for all our residents. Following these safety tips can help ensure a fun and relaxing summer season at the pool. Happy swimming!
