We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.
The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.
For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)
Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Adult Admission Price & Policy
Note: Admission policies and prices shown in Swimmers Guide listings are believed to be correct as of the date(s) shown in brackets. If not correct now, please click on the "Edit" button and tell us so this listing can be fixed and the information brought current. This site works best when its users take an active role in the maintenance of the data.
When you arrive, scan the ticket at the turnstile. After the turnstile there are benches where swimmers must remove their shoes before entering the changing area. Take an orange hanger on the counter to the left and bring it to a private changing booth, where you change into your swim suit. Place the orange band that corresponds to the number on the hanger onto your wrist or ankle. Hand the hanger with your belongings to the attendant. (I had my wallet and cell phone in my hanger, and nothing was touched.) Descend the stairs to the co-ed showers where swim suits remain on. Swim.
The pool is immaculate. One lane is reserved for instruction, three lanes for specific swim styles (in French and English), and one wide lane for free swimming. No speeds are designated. If I timed it right, I was able to sprint between swimmers but it took patience.
