One of the best parts of living at a Drewlo building is the access to top-notch amenities. What better way to cool off this summer than by using the swimming pool at your building?

While enjoying both the indoor and outdoor amenities, we ask that you're always considerate of other swimmers and that you follow these simple pool rules.

1. Know your pool's operating hours

       To ensure your safety we ask that residents only use the pool while building managers are on duty

2. Bring the proper swimming attire

       Bathing suit

       Towel to dry off

       Waterproof diapers for children

       Non-slippery shoes 

3. Parents please follow these rules

       Children under the age of 16 should not be in the pool without supervision

       All children under the age of 8 should have a life jacket or puddle jumpers

4. Shower before & after swimming

       This will help to prevent excess dirt, bacteria, or residue from hygiene products from entering the pool

5. No splashing or running

       Splashing makes the pool deck wet

       Running on the deck can lead to slipping

       Splashing also lowers water levels in the pool

       Splashing can be dangerous or disruptive to other swimmers

6. Avoid swimming if you have the following:

       Cuts, gashes or rashes

       Infections, colds, or flus


7. Report faulty pool equipment to your building manager 

       Faulty equipment includes broken ladders and cracked concrete

8. Alcohol Is not permitted in the pool area

       Alcohol should not be consumed before swimming either

Have a safe & fun summer!
