How to get your pool safe for the kids this summer

With the summer season upon us, it’s time to start thinking about how you can make your home swimming school as safe as possible for the little ones. 

The right swimming pool supplies and equipment can go a long way to making your pool a safer place to be, including for the most vulnerable people who may come across it. So, let’s take a look at some of the best ways to make your pool a safe haven for kids of all ages. 

  1. Invest in the right swimming pool cover

A pool cover is an essential safety measure. Not only will it help keep debris and dirt out of the pool, but it can also help prevent accidental drownings. Make sure you choose one that fits your pool securely and covers the entire surface area.

  1.  Install fencing around the pool

A fence around your pool can help keep kids from accidentally falling in. And here at Pool Warehouse, we offer an excellent form of such safety fencing – the easy-to-install Rollaway fencing system, which complies with the French AFNOR Safety Standards. We also give you lots of scope to set out the exact specification of swimming pool safety fencing that you require. 

  1. Keep toys appropriate

Pool toys can be a lot of fun, but you should make sure they are appropriate for all ages. Avoid any toys that have sharp edges or rigid materials, as these can pose a hazard if they come in contact with swimmers. It is also important to keep an eye on any toys that are being used, to help ensure they do not become a drowning hazard.

  1. Educate children about pool safety

Education is crucial – make sure you teach the children about pool safety and the importance of following rules. Explain the risks associated with swimming and let them know what to do in an emergency.

  1. Always supervise swimmers

Never leave children unattended in or around the pool. Make sure there is an adult present to supervise any swimmers, especially young ones. Make sure everyone takes regular breaks, and have a designated area for swimmers to rest where they can remain within the eyesight of an adult.

Final thoughts

Pool safety is an important part of summer fun. By taking the necessary steps, you can help make sure everyone stays safe while they enjoy the refreshing water. 

From pool covers to safety fences, there are so many excellent swimming pool supplies and pieces of equipment available through our own online store, that can go a long way to keeping little ones safe. So, why not help yourself to a few as the height of the summer swimming season approaches?
