Proper Swim Attire
Forest Oaks Pool is a family-friendly facility and patrons are expected to wear appropriate swim apparel and clothing at all times. Any questionable swim attire will be addressed by Forest Oaks lifeguards and the ultimate decision will be made by the Life Guards on duty. Proper swim attire is required because: •Street clothes (especially cotton) can transport airborne and ultimately water borne contaminants into the pool. •Lycra and nylon are the best non-absorbent material for swimming and the best fabrics for proper swim attire. oOther absorbent materials such as cotton can break down in the water and cause fibers to clog filters. oAny “colored” material, unless specifically made for swimming, can bleed into the pool, effecting water chemistry and balance. •Cotton and similar materials can absorb the chemicals in the water, causing the water to become less effective at maintaining the proper chemical balance or may cloud the water.
Approved Swim Attire
•Must have an interior liner. •Women’s one and two-piece bathing suits •Men’s Jammers or Speedo-style suits •Board Shorts (no grommets allowed) •Rash Guards •Religious swimwear (Ex. Burkini) •Swim shirt made of material designed for use in the water. •Swim diapers •Sunglasses •Hats/visors •Swim shoes
