Swimming Pool Construction San Diego Safety Tips
First, make sure there is proper supervision. The American Red Cross suggests keeping young children within arms reach at all times when swimming. One responsible person should be designated to watch the water when people are in the pool. Do not swim alone. Have younger swimmers and people who are inexperienced wear Coast Guard approved life jackets.
Secure your pool with proper barriers. Completely surround your pool with a 4-feet high barrier with a self-closing, self-latching gate. Place a safety cover on the pool or hot tub when not in use and remove any ladders or steps used for access. Consider installing a pool alarm that goes off if anyone enters the pool.
Keep your pool or hot tub water clean and clear. Maintain proper chemical levels, circulation and filtration. Be sire to test and adjust the chemical levels regularly to minimize the risk of earaches, rashes and other possible diseases.
Establish and enforce rules and safe behaviors, such as “no diving,” “stay away from drain covers,” “swim with a buddy” and “walk please.” Make sure everyone at home knows how to respond to emergencies by having the correct safety equipment and taking water safety, first aid and CPR courses. These tips and others can be found on the American Red Cross website.
