There are plenty of opportunities every summer to soak up the sun while playing by a swimming pool. Whether it’s own your backyard, a neighborhood swim club, or a friend’s house, it is important to follow some of the universal safety rules when around a pool. Even if you don’t plan on going swimming, an injury can still occur in a matter of seconds. We here at KS Pools & Patios, one of the best inground pool builders in Richboro, PA, would like people of all ages to be responsible when spending time out by the pool.
Here are a few tips we give all homeowners when installing a new pool for them on how they can lower the chances of injuries occurring by their pool:
Keep It Secure
Even if you don’t feel like you have any issues or run-ins with your neighbor, it is highly recommended to always have a fence wrap around your pool. Some towns, counties, and cities even go as far to make zoning cards that require a pool to be kept secure via some type of fence. The right fence can prevent uninvited guests from making themselves comfortable in your pool.
Consider a Pool Alarm
Those with young children and pets can really use the benefits of a pool alarm. Helping children and pets from wandering into the pool unsupervised, a pool alarm not only works at night but also helps when children may be playing by themselves during the day in the summer.
Clean It…But Don’t Overdo It
All pool owners know that they need to use chemicals to help keep their pool clean but not all pool owners know that using too many chemicals can be just as harmful. We recommend new and even experienced pool owners check the chemical levels of their pool on a daily basis.
