Swimming Pool Safety

The Sensible Way
to Enjoy Your Inground
Swimming Pool


Swimming pool safety entails using alot of common sense, and yet accidents continue to happen at swimming pools across the country.  This post from the Association of Pool and Spa professionals presents this handy packet with guidelines for drowning prevention.  The main point that seems to always get lost is that there is no substitution for Adult Supervision, no matter what other precautions are in place.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

This booklet has been prepared by the Association of Pool &
Spa Professionals (APSP) to inform you about general safe
use, operation, and maintenance of your pool.
It represents the current knowledge of the industry,
but is not intended to cover all aspects of pool design
operations, installation, and maintenance. Refer to specific
manufacturer’s instructions for more details on product
installation, use, maintenance, and safety and keep them
along with this booklet for ready use and reference. Be sure
to pass them along to future owners or renters.
Swimming pools are intended to provide many hours of
enjoyment. Just as with any product, you and only you can
determine if your pool is used sensibly. The key to safe use
of a product is a sensible and informed consumer.
