If your Murfreesboro home has a pool, then you’re most likely aware of the various safeguards that are recommended for pool safety. Maybe this is your first home with a pool and you’re not sure where to begin. The team at Tub Tile & Tops recommends following these four pool safety tips so everyone can have a fun and safe time splashing in the water.
1. Install & Use Physical Safeguards
All pools, whether above- or in-ground, should be equipped with protective safeguards. We recommend installing a fence around your pool that has a self-closing and locked gate. If you don’t have a fence, or simply for extra protection, use a pool cover whenever the pool is empty. There are also door and pool alarms available that alert you when someone has entered the pool area or the pool itself.
2. Always Watch Children
Keeping kids safe in your pool is certainly your #1 goal, so whether it’s you or another adult, make sure there is always a responsible person supervising the kids while they’re in the water. This individual should remain within the fenced area and never, for any reason, leave the children alone. If they need a break to get a refreshment or use the restroom, have another person watch over the kids instead.
3. Take a CPR Class
It’s a good idea to be prepared in case of an emergency, so we highly suggest pool owners take a CPR class. If something unfortunate should occur, you can begin CPR while waiting for an ambulance to arrive.
4. Sign Your Kids Up for Swim Lessons
Even if you don’t have a pool, odds are that your kids will want to visit a friend’s pool or public pool. Check out your local area to find out if swim lessons are available. Many places also offer beginning swim lessons for babies and toddlers. This can encourage a love of water in your children and provide peace of mind for you knowing that wherever they go, they can safely swim and play in the water.
