Help Keep Our Pools Clean
Enjoy Your Swim in Hygienic Pools

To ensure a desirable swimming environment, your cooperation is needed to help keep public swimming pools clean and hygienic. Please observe the following when visiting public swimming pools:

  1. Before you go swimming,

    • If you feel unwell, vomit or have symptoms of fever, diarrhoea, flu, red-eye disease or skin infection, it is advisable to refrain from swimming and consult your doctor promptly.

  2. When you are inside the pool area,

    • Please keep the changing room and toilet clean and tidy.
    • Do not spit, litter, eat, drink or smoke.

  3. Before you enter the pool deck area,

    • Make sure you put on a proper and clean swimming suit. If you prefer to wear a T-shirt while swimming, bring along a clean white T-shirt to put on in the changing room.
    • Please wash your body thoroughly in the changing room.
    • Please walk through the shower bath and footbath containing chlorinated water and rinse your body to remove dirt.
    • Please only bring in clean clothing and personal belongings to the pool deck area.
    • On the pool deck area, do not wear shoes/slippers that are worn outside the pool complex. If necessary, please bring along another pair of clean slippers, scrub the bases against a mat provided inside the changing room and spray thoroughly with water to remove any dirt. Wear your slippers to walk through the footbath and enter the pool deck.
