Swimming in the Sun? Sunscreen Tips That Help Keep This a “Low Chlorine” Pool

Easy, durable, simple, reusable: a rash guard swim shirt with a high UPF rating. Better than sunscreen! You can’t sweat it off, rub it off, it stays on your skin in water, and it’s effective immediately, unlike sunscreen. Widely available. Material feels a bit like stretchy swimsuit fabric.

Still want to use sunscreen at Radiance Pool? Please follow these steps:

  1. Read the manufacturer’s directions on printed on the container of sunscreen or sunblock product. It probably says something like “apply 30 minutes before exposure to sun.”
  2. Please put on your sunscreen or sunblock per manufacturer’s instructions before coming to the pool. This allows the product to penetrate your skin and protects you the most effectively from the sun.
  3. When you get to the Radiance Pool, please, as always, rinse off using the shower before entering the pool water.
  4. If you need to reapply, please do so and then wait the manufacturer-specified time span for your skin to absorb the product, before entering the pool water again. Rinse off before you enter, please.
  5. Failure to comply with these sunscreen/sunblock manufacturer-recommended instructions will result in murky water, higher chlorine levels in the pool, along with additional labor hours spent to remove sunscreen from the pool’s filters.
  6. Alternatively, try swimming before 10 am or after 4 pm if you’d rather avoid sunblock and sunscreen. This practice can lessen your solar exposure too.

The Radiance Community Pool is not the same as a municipal pool, which uses a powerful chemical stew to deal with heavy bather loads, with sunscreen and sweat in the water. The Radiance Pool is a minimally chlorinated pool with chemistry in a delicate balance. Please help us keep it that way by keeping sunscreen goop out of our pool equipment.
