Home Pool Safety

This blog post is sponsored. All opinions are 100% my own.

With so many affordable backyard pools on the market, many people have pools.  So, with summer around the corner, I thought we should discuss home pool safety. 

It doesn't matter if you have a baby pool, Intex, or even an inground pool, you should always follow home pool safety.

We had a pool before my kids could even walk, and I went out of my way to protect my children and the kids that might find themselves in my back yard.

Home Pool Safety

Here is a list of do's for home pool safety!

  • Do signup your child for swim lessons. This is so important. Your child will learn about water safety along with the lifelong skill of knowing how to swim.
  • Do lock your gates, ladders, sliding doors, keep kids away from water when an adult isn't around to supervise.
  • Do wear sunscreen. Teach your children to protect their skin. Make it a habit just like brushing your teeth.
  • Do have a phone nearby in case you need to call 911.
  • Do talk as a family about the rules around water and safety.
  • Do assign someone to always be watching in the water. Never be more than arm's length away.

Here is a list of don'ts for home pool safety!
  • Don't leave toys in the pool. Your child might be tempted to reach for them.
  • Don't let life jackets replace adult supervision.
  • Don't ever leave your child unattended near water.
  • Don't forget that it's crucial to be CPR certified in case of an emergency.
  • Don't get distracted!

The best drowning prevention is through supervision and education. If you haven't done so, spring is the perfect time to start your swimming education at Aqua-Tots Swim Schools!
