Safety is a key ingredient to being a confident and happy pool owner, especially when children are involved. Anything Wet Pools & Spas of South Florida knows that keeping kids safe in and around the water creates a secure and pleasant experience for everyone. The following steps can be taken to make sure you and your family continues to safely enjoy:
· Be on alert and on-site when children are in or near the pool or spa. They should never be unaccompanied until they have reached an age and/or swimming level that you feel comfortable leaving them alone. Enroll your child in swim lessons so they can fully take advantage of the pool and everything it has to offer.
· Ensure that all children know what the rules are and how to swim safely, using floating toys and life vests if needed. Keep an extra flotation device on hand in case of emergencies. Keep kids away from all electrical components of the pool or spa to avoid accidents.
· In regard to spas, create a time limit for children. Set a timer near the spa so they don’t forget when they’re supposed to exit. Spending too much time in the spa can cause overheating, and children may not recognize the signs.
· Keep a first aid kid nearby the pool and a pair of scissors should you need to cut away clothes, hair, or anything that may restrict a child from moving.
