Having a swimming pool at one of your properties can be a great asset.  They’re popular among residents and can provide great fun for residents.  However, pools do come with some responsibility.  You need to make sure that anyone using the pool stays safe, and the best way to do that is by posting and enforcing some rules.  You probably already know some of the most important swimming pool rules (like no running and no glass), but there are others worth considering.  Here are three rules to think about posting at your pool:

No pets

Not all pools have this rule, but it may be worth putting in place.  Animals in the pool can be unsanitary, and it can be harmful to people with allergies.  Pet hair can also cause pool filters to clog and not function correctly.  Even if you love pets, it may be best to require that they stay away from the pool.

Pool capacity

Even when pools have a posted capacity, limits on the number of swimmers often go unenforced.  That could be a serious mistake; capacities are posted for a reason, and exceeding them can pose a significant safety hazard.  Having too many people swimming in close proximity can be dangerous, and it also has the potential to cause tempers to flare.  You can avoid that by posting a capacity for the pool area and making sure residents stick to it.

Limits on guests

One sensible way to reduce the number of people in the pool while still making sure as many residents as possible can use the pool is by limiting the number of non-resident guests anyone can bring to the pool.  Limits of 2 or 3 guests are relatively common and may help alleviate unwanted crowding around your pool area.
