-- Swimming pool contractor, United States Pools
, values a recent report in Web Wire emphasizing that pool ownership includes responsibilities. As a company that offers resources for swimming pools and services ranging from remodeling, repairs and more, the professionals at United States Pools understands that improving a backyard with high quality swimming pool additions and features requires owner responsibility and upkeep. Without frequent attention and care, an aesthetically enhanced pool will lose its value, which is why the swimming pool contractor includes regular maintenance services for both commercial and residential pools.
The article asserts that safety measures and proper coverage are as necessary as water and towels, and that while owning a pool can bring many benefits, pool ownership requires taking necessary steps to make sure family and guests are as safe as possible. The report spotlights Ron Stouffer, senior vice president for Allstate Insurance Company. "As easily as a pool can be a setting for a perfect summer day, it can be a setting for an unforgettable accident," he said. "Pool owners need to think about safety, about security, about liability and about local ordinances, and take steps in each of these areas. It's not enough to wait for a warm day, fill the pool with water, and have a great afternoon, because a pool is a pool around the clock, and every pool has its dangers."
The staff at United States Pools weighs in on the importance of managing pool safety. "We advise pool owners against leaving toys or floats in the pool when not in use, as these can serve as potential hazards, especially when children are unsupervised," said a staff person. "Always ensure that each household member or guest knows how to swim, and share the pool rules with everyone who goes in the pool."
The article encourages pool owners to take CRP training, and to keep life saving gear "such as first aid kit, reaching poles and buoys readily available and in proper working condition. Children should always be supervised while in the pool. Keep children away from filters and devices with suction force that may cause injury or drowning."
The professionals at the pool company advise parents to install proper safety precautions in their pools, including an alarm that alerts homeowners when someone has broken the surface of the pool. "This device makes it possible for parents to quickly tend to a child who may have fallen into the pool or accidentally wandered in," said a staff person. United States Pools encourages homeowners to remove ladders near the pool when not in use and to secure a tarp over the pool, making it harder for a child to slip into the water.
