Etiquette Reminder...

Please Shower before Entering Pool & Hot Tubs

A thorough  shower helps to remove perspiration, body odor, cosmetics and traces of other waste that we carry. By  showering you send those substances down the drain and don't take them in to the pool and or hot tub with you. 

Pool chemicals are added to eliminate those substances and fight against any risks of bacteria and germs. 

By showering, you are also lowering the amount of chemicals needed in the pool. 

Thank you for helping El Gancho maintain a clean and safe swimming environment for everyone to enjoy.
