If you’re going for a swim in a public pool you dive in expecting a clean, hygienic, hassle-free experience. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Remember that public pools are just that… they’re public, therefore open to all. When making use of them, personal hygiene and a consideration for others should be your top priorities.

Here are 10 essential rules to follow when using public pools.

1. Read and follow the specific rules posted at the pool. Every public pool has a set of guidelines they expect patrons to adhere to. It is your responsibility to carefully go over and follow them.

2. Shower before entering the pool.

3. Wear a swimming cap, especially over long hair. The last thing you want to do is leave behind a chunk of your hair for other patrons to deal with.

4. Select a swimming lane based on skill level and speed and stay in it. Do not frighten less experienced swimmers with your speed and momentum and do not bother the more experienced ones with a lack thereof.

5. Make it a point to wear swimming goggles as it helps you to clearly see other swimmers.

6. Not all public pools employ lifeguards. Always use caution, whether or not a lifeguard is present.

7. Do not leave young children unattended at any time. Even if a lifeguard is present it is your responsibility to ensure your children are safe and protected.

8. Do not urinate in the pool, and discourage children from doing this as well.

9. Don't jump in the pool, or push off on a backstroke length, without making very sure you're not going to crash into someone or just scare the living daylights out of them. Be mindful of your surroundings.

10. Don't let your pets swim in the pool. Keep them out of it. If your pets must accompany you while you take your swim, make sure that they do not enter the pool at anytime and are being supervised by someone when you aren’t watching over them.
