5 Things You Should Do For Pool Safety at Home

Swimming pools are one of the best ways to enjoy your property in the summer heat. They’re a great way to cool down, but you should never end up regretting your pool because of an avoidable accident. If you are moving into a house with a pool, here are 5 things you should do to stay safe.

Install A Pool Safety Fence Around The Pool

Putting up a pool fence with a self-closing, self-latching, lockable pool gate can help prevent accidents if young children attempt to swim unsupervised, and can deter unauthorized “visitors” from getting into your pool. A mesh pool fence is best because it’s difficult for children to climb and takes minimal effort to set up and take down. These strong and durable fences are some of the most popular and effective ways to promote pool safety at home.

In some states, a pool fence is required, so your pool may already have a fence. If so, it may need to be checked to make sure there are no hidden problems.

Learn About Pool Safety And What To Do If Someone Is In Trouble

Most pools should meet minimum safety standards required by the state. However, you should always be alert, especially if young children and animals are frequently in and around your pool. You
should learn basic first aid and CPR so that you will be ready if an accident happens. Always be ready to get out of the pool if there are warning signs of trouble like an approaching thunderstorm.

Keep Up With The Pool Maintenance

The required maintenance is another factor affecting pool safety at home. Improperly sanitized water can be harmful. Keep the pool clean and have the water tested on a regular basis to make sure it has the right balance of chemicals.

Pools also require routine maintenance to keep their filters clean and components in good working order. A good pool cover can help maintain pool safety at home while keeping leaves and debris out of your pool when you aren’t using it.

Discuss Proper Pool Etiquette With Kids And Adults

If you frequently have company over make sure everybody knows and follows safety rules even if a child might be upset that you’re not giving him or her free rein with your pool. Dealing with an angry child is better than dealing with the consequences of a tragic accident.

Be Aware Of Any Insurance Requirements

Sometimes an insurance policy or the city code will require that you implement some extra safety measures that may seem unnecessary. The requirements may include the installation of a pool fence, an alarm, and additional safety features that can help keep unwanted guests out of your pool. These requirements reduce your liability risk.

The Bottom Line On Pool Safety at Home

A good pool fence is a good start for pool safety and may prevent an accident from occurring when you’re not there. However, this is just the start of looking out for safety in and around your new pool in a meaningful way. Following these simple steps can help you prevent avoidable problems in and around your pool.

Color Variations

Colors on your screen or brochure may not match the actual color of your product.

Due to the many variations in monitors, phones, and browsers, color samples and product examples may appear different on different screens. Computers and mobile devices are not all calibrated equally and color reproduction on the Internet is not precise. The same is true for printed items such as brochures and other sales literature. 

In addition, the colors of our products photograph differently under different lighting conditions. For example, photos taken in full sunlight will vary from photos taken on a cloudy or overcast day. Similarly, shadows from nearby objects can affect the color and transparency of our products. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Colors will vary from batch to batch.

Many of our products’ materials are not available through typical stores and vendors and therefore must be custom manufactured specifically for our use. In order to control costs and provide you with the best value possible, our raw materials are produced in large batches and can often take several months to receive. The colors of our materials can, and often do, vary slightly from batch to batch. Although we make every effort to minimize color variations, we cannot be responsible for these differences when they occur. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Color names are subjective and may not be what you think the color should be.

For example, we use the name “putty” to describe some of our products. Your idea of the color “putty” may be different than someone else’s idea of “putty”. In addition, products may have the same color name but may not be the exact same color. For example, we have different shades of “black”. Please do not order using color names as your only guide. If a precise color or specific shade is important, please inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

Inspect the actual color of your product prior to installation.

If it is important that your product be an exact color or shade, it is highly recommended that you inspect the actual product prior to its installation and address any concerns with your local independent installer. Most independent installers do not offer refunds or accept returns due to color variations.
