Proper Swim Attire
Here are just a few reasons why it is important to wear approved pool attire:
- Street clothes (especially those made of cotton) can transport air and waterborne contaminants to the pool.
- Absorbent materials such as cotton can break down in the water. These fibers can clog pool filters and create the need for expensive repairs. Lycra and Nylon are the best non-absorbent materials for swimwear.
- Any colored or dyed materials (unless specifically made for swimming) can bleed into the pool, affecting the water chemistry.
- All individuals, both on the pool deck and in the swimming pool, must wear proper swim attire.
- Infants and toddlers are required to wear a swim diaper.
- Individuals can wear clean cotton t-shirts and sarongs on the pool deck only. They must also wear proper swim attire underneath these clothing items.
- Underwear and other undergarments are not allowed to be worn under swimsuits.
- Brazil/French-cut, thong-style, and/or translucent swimwear.
- Street clothes
- Jeans (including cut-off jeans)
- Sports bras
- Dri-fit wear
- Compression shorts and shirts
