Beware of Swimming Pool Accidents this Summer

Summer is the optimal time to get some great use out of your swimming pool. Many families enjoy spending their days lounging by the pool, sunbathing, swimming, playing, or attending neighborhood pool parties. While swimming pools can be the entertainment center of your home, they come with a certain number of hazards and risks which are impossible to ignore.

As the use of swimming pools rises during the summer, so does the the number of swimming pool-related injuries and accidents. The risk for dangerous or even fatal pool accidents is always eminent, even if you or your child have been properly trained for safe pool use.

Mishaps and injuries from swimming pool accidents include but are not limited to:

  • Dirty water, limiting visibility and causing infection
  • Lack of safety equipment
  • Incorrect labeling of pool depth
  • Damaged equipment
  • Overcrowding
  • Lack of trained professionals such as lifeguards

Despite the frightening possibility of these accidents, you don’t have to be hesitant to take part in any pool-related activities this summer. Taking a few precautions such as checking the chlorine levels, depth of the pool, and always having up-to-date safety equipment will provide you with the peace of mind you need to enjoy your pool to the maximum this summer.
