Before you put on your swimsuit, make sure you can access the pool. Most apartment communities issue a pool pass, code, or gate key to Residents. This means only paying Residents and a handful of of their friends can use the pool, not just anyone. So if you want to swim this summer, drop by the main office at the beginning of the summer. Be sure to remember, don’t share your pool key with unattended guests and non-Residents.

Most apartment communities don’t hire lifeguards. A few places staff lifeguards, but at the end of the day, you’re still the one has to look out for your safety. In fact, you can see a posted announcement that property management is not liable for accidents, injuries, or stolen items.
