Pool Rules
The lifeguard and monitoring staff have full authority to enforce all safety and sanitary measures deemed necessary for the proper operation of the pool. They are charged with the enforcement of all pool rules and regulations. They do not have the authority to make exceptions to the rules and regulations.
Pool privileges will be revoked by Harmony the Lakes HOA if a homeowner is not current in their HOA dues or if behavior at the pool places him or others in danger. The pool management company, monitoring company, and the Harmony on the Lakes HOA have the right to take legal action if necessary.
The primary function of the lifeguard is to lifeguard, not to discipline or baby-sit. Residents are required to observe all rules so the lifeguards are free to perform his or her job.
 
No glass containers are allowed in the pool area.
 
Boisterous conduct is not permitted in the pool area. This includes running, pushing, playing loud music, using foul language or others acts that would endanger or annoy others.
 
Alcoholic beverages may not be consumed by anyone under the age of 21. Anyone showing signs of intoxication will be denied use of the facilities and will be subject to suspension or expulsion.
 
Smoking (including vapor and electronic cigarettes) and tobacco use are prohibited in the rest rooms, in the pool and on the pool deck area. No one should be smoking around anyone under the age of 18.
 
Everyone using the pool area is responsible for removing their property and disposing of their refuse in the trash containers.
 
Use of the toddler pools is reserved for babies, toddlers and young children who are unable to swim and they must be accompanied by an adult. The toddler pools are not guarded by lifeguards and are therefore the responsibility of the parents and other adults present. Rowdy play will not be tolerated. Anyone violating this rule will be required to leave the toddler pool. 
 
Residents must be able to present amenities card (pass) upon request. The life guards and monitoring staff along with the HOA will regularly check for pool cards and will require that anyone who is not able to represent their card leave the pool area. It is a violation, subject to the loss of amenity privileges, to knowingly allow entrance to the pool to any individual not authorized to be there.
 
Only four guests per household are allowed at any time. All guests must be accompanied by an adult resident(s) at all times, unless the guest is an adult and an immediate family member. For the purposes of this rule, adult is defined as an individual 18 years of age or older and immediate family member is defined as a spouse, father, mother, step-parent, son, daughter, step-child, sister, brother, grandparent, grandchild, domestic partner or in-law of Harmony on the Lakes resident.
 
The person with the amenity card for the household is responsible for the behavior of its guests. If the behavior does not follow the pool rules and regulation it is a violation, subject to the loss of amenity privileges.
 
Proper bathing suit attire shall be worn: NO cutoffs, jeans, G-strings, thongs, etc.
 
No pets allowed on the pool deck.
 
No spitting, spouting of water or blowing your nose in the pool.
 
No ball throwing in the areas of those not participating.
 
The lifeguards will regulate the use of floating devices and pool toys.
 
Only the life guards are permitted on the lifeguard stands.
 
The life guards are scheduled to take a 15-minute break every hour. Swimming during guard breaks is at your own risk. The HOA, lifeguards and pool company will not be liable for any incidents or accidents that may occur during the guard break. For safety and health reasons, no one under the age of 18 is permitted to use the pool during guard breaks. 
 
All children under the age of three and those children who older but not potty trained are required to wear “swimming diapers” AND tight-fitting rubber pants under their bathing suits always. Swimming diapers and rubber pants should be checked by parents regularly and should be changed promptly if soiled. Absolutely no disposable diapers or pull-ups are allowed in the pool at any time.
 
 
All children who are entering the 7th grade, as evidenced by their report card, or are aged 12 through 17, with parental permission may use the pool during regular pool hours as long as they have a current swim pass and a lifeguard is present. Parents must sign a swim pass waiver releasing the lifeguards, pool company and Harmony on the Lakes HOA of liability in the event of an accident. Any child who violates pool rules or the rules outlined in the swim pass materials will automatically lose their privilege to swim without a parent present.
 
Individuals under the age of 18 whose parents have not signed a swim pass registration form and release waiver and all children 11 years of age or younger must be accompanied by an adult, age 18 or older at all times in the pool area.
 
 
The Harmony on the Lakes HOA, lifeguards and security staff are authorized to remove any person violating any of the pool rules and regulations and suspend the right of any violator to use the pool.
