Communal swimming pool. A pleasure, a burden or a torment

As you look. Everything in this life has several readings and what at first might seem like a pleasure, can become a burden or a torment. Have a pool at home It is a luxury, no doubt, something that is not available to everyone. In recent years, urbanizations that include a communal swimming pool, a way to bring the summer bath to the common of mortals.

It really is an attractive offer, who will deny it, but in the long run we can discover that it gives us more worries than joys. Because there are many types of community pools, as many as Neighbor communities there is on the face of the earth, and we all know that these are not always the joy of the garden. The way they are managed will give one or the other results, and the use that neighbors make of them will make the difference between a pleasant place for everyone or the private preserve of a few neighbors.

In the first place, when deciding to buy a home with this type of service, it is necessary to take into account and seriously value the use that is going to be made of it, and the expenses that its maintenance can generate.

The pools are subject to a strict regulations, according to the areas where they are located, which requires the availability of various services, such as the hiring of a lifeguard, the renovation of elements and the adaptation of spaces to correctly store chemicals, among others. To all this is added the Maintenance service necessary for proper conservation. We are talking about an important annual bill, around 15,000 euros, which although we divide it among a large number of neighbors, it can increase the community fee until it is prohibitive.

In some areas, the need to have a lifeguard is given by the number of neighbors; thus, in a building with fifty neighbors it will be mandatory, but in a colony of 15 terraced houses they can avoid that expense.

Another important issue is the use of the pool and its surroundings. Living in the neighborhood is not always easy and it is necessary to have minimum standards of coexistence, as well as others that meet security. But that's where everyone's education can play tricks on us. There are families who enjoy watching their puppies throw themselves upside down in the pool, watching pride swells as their child is the strongest and bravest of all, collar meat I would say.

This is where the lifeguard's task It becomes important, since it is not only present to intervene in an accident, but largely to prevent it. And the task is not always easy for him, therefore it is important to have the image of the lifeguard as an authority gates inside.

The taste for the latest musical trends does not happen to impose them on the rest of the neighbors, many go down in flip flops looking for a relaxing time, and offer the rest of the users the great successes of the extinct Fary, however much we like it, it is not a receipt. Eating in the area can cause problems, since food remains serve as food for ants, fleas and other insects. An extra fumigation will also carry expenses that will cause unnecessary spills.

Keep in mind that the pool belongs to everyone, so leaving towels on the fence while we are away for hours, or keeping the site by extending chairs and umbrellas while we go shopping or eating, are attitudes that impair the proper functioning of this common space.

Anyway, let's think seriously about the convenience of entering a community with a swimming pool, and if in the end we do, keep respect and forms, our neighbors will thank you and we will all enjoy the refreshing bath equally.
