Swimming Pools Safety Tips to Consider for Homeowners

One of the main things about practicing pool safety is to never leave children unattended in or around the pool. In order to keep people from using the pool when you are not around, you should have a high fence around it, so that no unauthorized people can get in and use the pool. You also have to make sure that the gates latch on the inside. Even if someone uses your pool without your permission and an accident happens, you can be held liable because it was not properly secured.

Make sure that a professional installs the pool so that it complies with safety standards. Do not rely too heavily on flotation devices when you have guests that are not swimmers and make sure there are no toys floating on the surface when there are small children around. The toys can attract them to try to reach for them and accidentally fall into the water. When the pool is not in use you should have a cover over it so that no one can accidentally slip and fall into the pool. Always store the chemicals you have for the pool in a safe area, away from children. (content from bluepage.org)
