For the convenience and enjoyment for all users please observe the following rules:
1. DIAPER POLICY … BASED ON CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL [CDC] GUIDELINES:
a. All children who are not potty trained and all incontinent adults must use swim diapers in combination with swim pants.
b. Swim pants should not be confused with swim suits. Swim pants are made of plastic and offer an additional layer of protection. Swim pants are worn over the swim diaper but under the swim suit.
c. This rule is not a substitute for frequent diaper changing and bathroom breaks. Please check diapers about every 30 to 60 minutes
d. Changing of diapers should not take place at poolside. The bathroom would be the ideal and best place to change diapers to reduce the chance of fecal and germ contamination around the pool area as well as providing a facility for dumping the feces in the toilet and the critical step of washing your hands
