*It is a state law that one should shower, we looked it up.  So lifeguards can ask individuals to shower before using the pools.    

Elderly persons and persons suffering from heart disease, diabetes, or high or low blood pressure should not enter the whirlpool.

Pregnant women should consult their physician regarding whirlpool usage.

Children under 18 are not allowed in the whirlpool.

All rules downstairs are good but make use to add these, and it states on 18 downstairs and that is what we should be following. 

Just something to remind parents. 

Lifeguards are NOT babysitters.  Their job is to keep everyone safe.  They can only do this if parents help them by swimming with their kids until their kids are old enough to be in the pool on their own or have passed the swim test in the large pool.
