As you may already be aware, swimming pool safety tips and swimming pool safety measures need to be at the forefront of what pool owners are concerned about at all times.
Investing In A Swimming Pool Safety Fence
The swimming pool safety fence needs to surround your entire pool, and for good reason. It can be both functional and aesthetically pleasing.
It goes without saying, but a swimming pool safety fence is one of the best ways to keep your family and pets safe in and around the pool. Your pool professional will let you know the mandatory requirements for the pool fence and it will need to be constructed as part of the pool project.
Considering A Pool Safety Cover & Alarm
In addition to a pool fence, you should also consider a swimming pool safety cover — which will enhance the safety of the pool by keeping your children and pets from falling in. If you can’t afford a fence, a cover is a great secondary safety measure.
With that said, a cover should not be where you stop in terms of keeping your pool safe. You can also invest in a pool safety alarm, which will amp up the safety of the pool. A motion activated sensor on your pool fence and a motion sensor on the pool itself can both be installed.
Additional Swimming Pool Safety Measures
- Make sure you use non-slip materials for the pool deck to prevent any slips and falls.
- Have your pool contractor inspect the pool for chipped or cracked tiles as those can pose trip and/or cut hazards.
- Make sure the pool ladder is safe. It needs to be safely anchored and wide enough for safe ingress and egress. The handrails should be non-slip for ease in using the ladder.
- Make sure everyone in the family knows how to swim.
- Never leave anyone unattended in the swimming pool — children or adult.
- Make sure you have pool safety devices poolside — a life jacket, pole to assist people in getting out of the pool, an emergency phone and other safety devices.
- Make sure the water chemicals are always in line so you don’t get red, itchy eyes or sensitive, dry skin from swimming.
