Swimming Pool Safety

Simple Pools or Luxury Pools - Accidents Happen (Simple pool Safety that's Easy and Effective)

It doesn't matter what kinds of swimming pools we're talking about here, whether the most simple pools, kiddie pools, play pools, aboveground pools, luxury pools, you must always keep in mind that accidents happen and it only takes a second for tragedy of swimming pool accidents.
What child doesn't want to have a little bit of fun in a swimming pool?
Almost everyone (including those who are kids-at-heart) loves to have a dip every now and then and young kids are especially enticed by swimming pools. If there is ever an access to the swimming pool you can be sure that kids will discover the way at an early age.  While most family pools are kept secure there are accidents and we must keep in mind the  reality of accidental drowning that has led to many heart-aches among several families particularly if a child is involved. How many times have we heard the grieving parents or adults that the accident would not have happened had they been more attentive?
We are constantly reminded of how important it is to keep toddlers and older children away from the pool if there is no adult to supervise them. So you, as the responsible adult, would take every swimming pool safety measure that you can think of to make the pool and its surroundings safe for children of all ages.
These would include:
  1. putting up a pool fence;
  2. making sure that the lock of the pool fence is beyond the children's reach;
  3. covering the pool securely;
  4. placing pool lights;
  5. keeping lifesaving equipment (like a life preserver, first aid kit, shepherds hook, and a telephone, if possible) near the pool;
  6. a non-slip surface is used for the pool deck;
  7. no rough play during swimming;
  8. teaching children that swimming alone is definitely prohibited;
  9. use life vests that have been specifically designed for this purpose; and so much more.
On the other hand, we sometimes forget that swimming pool chemicals can also pose as a hazard to children's health. Remember that the danger sign is printed on the label for a reason, which is why you should not overlook this part of the safety process.
Swimming pool chemicals should be:
  1. sealed properly when not in use;
  2. kept out of children's reach (keep it under lock and key); and
  3. stored in a cool, dry place that is properly ventilated.
  4. Don't allow people particularly children to use the pool while it is being treated.
  5. Invest in swimming pool test kits but make sure that you change the chemicals used for these test kits annually.
Overall, short of teaching your child how to swim, there are a number of different precautionary measures that you as an adult could take to keep the young ones from getting in harm's way and combining all of these precautionary measures can help keep your child safe from possible harm.

If you're interested in getting a new swimming pool then you can find information and resources for inexpensive aboveground pools, luxury inground pools, rock pools or modern swimming pools.
If you already have a swimming pool please do check your swimming pool safety items to be sure they're in working order.....and KEEP them in working order, doesn't matter if you're using the pool or not....doesn't matter if it's pool season or not, swimming pools, simple pools or luxury pools, ALL swimming pools are attractive nuisances for kids. Keep it safe.
