Tools for the Pool at Our Luxury Apartments in Gainesville, FL
Bellamay Grand residents are always welcome to enjoy a relaxing afternoon by our pool, but it’s smart to get a few things together if you’re planning to enjoy some fun in the water or sun. Having the right tools for the pool area can help both you and other members of our community enjoy this wonderful amenity comfortably.
First and foremost, don’t forget to bring a towel. Swimmers will want to be able to dry off, and it’s courteous for anyone fresh out of the water to put a towel on any chairs they plan to use, to help keep it dry for others who may want to use it later. Those sticking to dry land may also want to bring a towel to dry off potentially wet seats, act as a pillow, or simply shade their eyes while they are in the sun. Towels are also a convenient way to wrap up and carry all of your belongings, saving you the trouble of dealing with a bulky bag.
Sunscreen is also essential, whether you’ll be spending time in the water or not. Be sure to choose one with appropriate SPF, generally 30 and higher, and be sure to reapply regularly, every two hours or so. Swimmers should also choose a waterproof sunscreen and be ready to reapply more regularly. This will help prevent sunburns and can possibly reduce the risk for skin cancer.
A final item it’s smart to bring is drinking water or another refreshing beverage. Swimming is a very active sport and, with the hot climate where our Gainesville apartment community is located, dehydration can be a serious problem whether someone is in the water or out. When choosing what sort of drink you want, be sure to avoid brining anything in glass bottles or cups, as glassware is prohibited in the pool area. Instead, choose items in easily disposable aluminum cans or plastic bottles, or better yet, a reusable plastic bottle.
Making sure you bring these essentials any time you visit our pool is a smart way to help make the most of your relaxing time there. For more information on our community’s amenities, or our available apartments in Gainesville, FL, contact Bellamay Grand today.
