Pool rules

At the pool, you always have the main responsibility for yourself and your family members. Lifeguard supervision does not reduce the pool users’ responsibility as it is, above all, a preventive measure.

  • Long hair must be tied up.
  • Babies and toddlers must wear a swim diaper. You can buy one at the cashiers’ desk.

  • It is not permitted to use swimwear as seat cover in the sauna.
  • Persons with a patch or a strap that indicates the right to wear a bathing suit in the sauna are permitted to do so (e.g. breast cancer and colostomy patients).

  • The staff may take measures against any activity that does not comply with the hygiene regulations.

A person that violates these rules or does not follow the instructions or orders given by the staff may be ordered to leave the swimming pool and no compensation will be paid. The staff may refuse entry in case a person shows or has previously shown inappropriate behavior. The Korsholm Swimming Pool is not liable to pay compensation should your visit to the pool be disrupted or interrupted due to a technical error, weather phenomena, hygiene-related reason or safety issue.
