POOL RULES

The Pool Rules and Regulations are part of Pebble Creek’s continuing effort to provide a safe recreational environment. Our pool cannot be operated safely without a reasonable set of rules and their strict enforcement. Cooperation of all residents is necessary. The pool attendant on duty has the authority to enforce these rules and may require any resident or guest violating these rules to leave. Repeated violations of pool rules and/or failure to cooperate with attendants may result in loss of pool privileges.

When there is thunder and lightning in the area, you will be asked to leave the pool by the pool attendants. Please listen to them and leave the pool upon request. We monitor the weather for such activities and want to keep all of our swimmers as safe as possible.  It is a county code that we have to ask swimmers to leave the pool when lightening is near.

Lap lanes are available to ADULTS ONLY 30 minutes prior to the pool opening. Otherwise, no one will be allowed in the swimming pool enclosure unless the pool is officially open. Anyone who enters the pool premises when it is not open will be subject to loss of pool privileges as well as trespassing charges.

Membership cards are required for entry to the pool and must be presented when requested by an attendant. If you do not already have one they can be obtained from a pool attendant. You must present a picture ID with a Pebble Creek address in order to obtain a membership card.  Three guests are permitted per card.

State law requires everyone to shower prior to entering the pool. Oils, lotions, hair gels, etc come off in the water and cause excessive wear on the pool filter. Use of sunscreen is encouraged but must be limited to those that are waterproof only.

There will be NO smoking, illegal drugs or alcoholic beverages on the deck or in the park. Anyone appearing to be under the influence of alcohol or narcotics will be denied admission or asked to leave.

No roller blades, skateboards or bicycles inside the pool building. All bicycles should be parked in the provided bike racks.

Glass, chewing gum, electrical equipment and pets are prohibited within the pool enclosure. Food and drink are permitted but only at the provided tables, chairs and loungers (public health policy requires that food remain a minimum distance of 4 feet from the pool).  No glass bottles or glass items are permitted.

Members are responsible for their children and guests who use the facility. Our pool’s maximum capacity, as governed by state law, is 70. In order to accommodate as many residents as possible, guests are generally limited to no more than three at a time. However, arrangements can be made for a reasonable number of additional guests by calling the pool office 813-973-8064 prior to your arrival.

All children ages 12 and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult (age 18+).

There will be no lifeguard present. All persons using the pool do so at their own risk.

All infants/children age 3 and under must wear a disposable swim diaper covered by separate rubber/vinyl pants, all of which must fit snugly around the legs and waist. If an accident occurs, notify the attendant immediately.  

Running, jumping, using profane language or other forms of disruptive and disorderly behavior are prohibited.

Residents may sign out approved pool toys from an attendant. Please be sure to return them prior to leaving the pool. These include things such as dive rings, dive sticks, neoprene balls, soft frisbee’s and a basketball hoop. Residents are welcome to bring similar toys of their own to play with as well as “noodles”, goggles, masks and snorkels. Toys such as boats, water guns and inflatable toys/rafts are not permitted. The only inflatable items permitted in the pool are infant flotation devices but when in use an adult must be within arms reach at all time. THE BOTTOM DRAINS OF THE POOL MUST BE VISIBLE AT ALL TIMES by Florida State Dept. of Health. Kickboards, used as intended, are permitted in lap lanes only but may be restricted at the attendant’s discretion in the event of safety concerns.

The pool attendant on duty has final authority when deciding to permit or restrict any items. All decisions will be made with consideration first and foremost to safety and then to prevent any members from infringing on other members’ ability to enjoy the pool. If you do not agree with a decision that is made please feel free to Contact Us.
