Swimming in the Sun?
Tips That Help Keep This a “Low Chlorine” Pool
UV swim shirts are a great way to get instant, reusable, long-lasting protection from the sun. Easy to put on and take off, durable, simple, reusable. 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 like stretchy swimsuit fabric. Examples:
Using sunscreen? Please:
- Read the manufacturer’s directions on printed on the container of sunscreen or sunblock product. It probably says something like “apply 15- 20 minutes before exposure to sun.”
- 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.
- When you get to the Radiance Pool, shower thoroughly before entering the pool water.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 or a conventional commercial pool, which use a powerful chemical stew to deal with heavy bather loads, with sunscreen and sweat in the water. Our pool has its chemistry in a delicate balance. Please help us keep it that way by keeping sunscreen goop out of our pool equipment.

The Radiance Community Pool Supplemental Rules, adopted in view of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, are listed below.
Note that the RPOA Board reserves the right to revisit these rules at any time should the situation with respect to COVID-19 change dramatically.
- If you are not feeling well, stay home, even if you do not believe you have COVID- 19 specifically.
- If you or any member of your household has been exposed to someone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19, stay home. Avoid using the pool for 3 days.
- If you are diagnosed with COVID-19 within a week after using the pool, please inform the Pool Liaison (512-964-0868) so that she can contact other pool users if necessary.
- In 2022, pool parties are once again permitted provided they have been scheduled with the Pool Manager in advance. Parties are capped at 15 attendees and the ratio of 1 adult to 4 children must be maintained. See the document (forthcoming) posted at https://radiancetx.org/pool for the responsibilities of pool members for scheduling and hosting pool parties safely and responsibly.
- In 2022, bimonthly community potlucks are once again permitted, provided that at least one Radiance resident has signed up to host a particular potluck. Please note: the responsibility for hosting potlucks will no longer fall to the Community Manager, Pool Manager, or RPOA Board. See the document (forthcoming) posted at https://radiancetx.org/pool for the specific responsibilities of potluck hosts.
- Pool members are permitted to invite only 3 guests to the pool at any one time.
- During the 2022 pool season, the total number of persons at the pool will be capped at 20. If you arrive to find that the pool is already near capacity, consider returning at a later time. If you are there with a larger-than-average group, limit your time to less than 2 hours so that others may also enjoy a relatively uncrowded pool.
- Out of respect for other pool users, social distancing is strongly encouraged.
