Swimming Pool Safety Tips

When it comes to being safe around the pool there are a number of things to keep in mind. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind while around the pool.

Block

  • Make sure your pool and/or spa has an effective barrier, such as a fence or net to help guard against unauthorized access.
  • Your pool or spa should have a barrier regardless of whether they are covered.
  • Door and windows leading to the pool areas should be locked.
  • Fence gates should have self-closing, self-latching mechanisms. Latches need to be out of reach of young children.

Watch

  • Never leave your child unattended in or near a swimming pool, hot tub, spa, not even for a second.
  • Keep toys, tricycles, and other children’s playthings away from the pool or spa.
  • Don’t consider your children to be “drown-proof” because they have taken swimming lessons.
  • Don’t assume that children will follow your swimming pool safety tips on their own. Your supervision is the best way to prevent drowning.
  • Don’t allow barriers, such as fences or walls, to give you a false sense of security regarding your child’s safety. There is No substitute for adult supervision.

Learn

  • Learn how to administer CPR, mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, and other lifesaving techniques. You must be properly trained to administer CPR correctly.
  • Learn how to contact your local emergency medical services. Install a phone or keep a cordless phone in the pool or spa area. Post the emergency number in an easy-to-see place.
  • Learn to swim and teach age-appropriate children to swim.

Other Swimming Pool Safety Tips

  • Do not allow children to play in or around the pool area.
  • Mount life-saving devices near the pool.
  • Keep tables, chairs, and ladders away from pool fences.
  • Check placement of doggie doors for direct access to the pool area.
  • Post your local emergency number on the phone. Consider installing a phone near the pool area.

If you find a child in any source of water…

  • Yell for help and pull the child out of the water.
  • Call 9-1-1 or your local emergency number immediately!
  • Begin CPR if you are trained.
  • If you are not trained to administer CPR, follow the instructions from the 9-1-1 operator until help arrives.

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.
