Pools are a property's most valuable asset, attracting families and kids, sunbathers, and swimmers. Unfortunately,
drowning and injuries around pools are all too common. Take precautions to help prevent injuries and avoid liability.
Equip your pool and pool area with the
proper pool safety equipment.
Be sure your pool has these safety items
Install regulation fencing with self-closing and self-latching gates around pools to help prevent unauthorized use. Some
states and counties have specific guidelines regarding pool fencing and barriers. Check the building codes for your region
to see what type of fence is required.
Swimmers need a safe and easy way to exit the pool. Make sure ladders and stairs are secure and that you have a good
tread on the steps to prevent slipping.
Coating pool decks and stairs with an
anti-skid paint can help reduce accidental slips, falls, and poolside injuries.
Emergency Pool Phones
Have a working poolside
phone that is easy to find and ready to use in case 911 must be called.
Pool Floats & Ropes
rope floats can be used to separate the shallow water from the deep end, giving swimmers a boundary line. Ropes and
floats can also section off lanes for lap swimmers.
Pool lifts make entry and exit easier for disabled swimmers, and are required for
ADA compliance for Title II and Title III pool facilities.
