Pool Safety

Tips & Tricks

Pool Safety

  • Supervision is Key

    Never leave children unattended near or in the pool, even for a moment. Designate a responsible adult to actively supervise swimmers.

  • Learn to Swim

    Encourage everyone in the family to learn how to swim. Formal swimming lessons can greatly enhance water safety.

  • Establish Pool Rules

    Clearly communicate and enforce pool rules, such as no running, no diving in shallow areas, and no pushing.

  • Install Barriers

    Install a fence around the pool with a self-closing, self-latching gate. Barriers help prevent unsupervised access, especially for young children.

  • Use Life Jackets

    For inexperienced swimmers or children, always use U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets. Ensure a proper fit and wear them consistently.

  • Keep Rescue Equipment Handy

    Have a shepherd’s hook and lifebuoy or floatation device near the pool. These can be essential in case of emergencies.

  • Teach Water Safety

    Educate family members and guests about basic water safety, including the importance of not diving into unknown or shallow areas.

  • Stay Hydrated

    Encourage regular breaks for hydration, especially during hot weather. Dehydration can lead to fatigue and increase the risk of accidents.

  • Learn CPR

    Knowing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can be a lifesaving skill. Consider taking CPR classes and ensuring others in the household are trained.

  • Secure Pool Drains

    Ensure that pool drains and suction outlets are compliant with safety standards to prevent entrapment incidents. Consider installing anti-entrapment covers.
