- Your pool can give you, your family and guests many years of fun and relaxation. Take the responsibility for safety. Any recreational activity that involves water poses a risk of personal injury. Swimming in an inground pool is no exception.
- Your awareness and understanding of safety practices and rules pertaining to the use of inground pools can reduce the risk of serious injury. Read the National Spa and Pool Institute’s excellent brochure, “The Sensible Way to Enjoy your Inground Pool” to learn how to avoid swimming related accidents.
- Don’t allow diving or jumping in your pool. Remember alcohol consumption and swimming do not mix.
- Carefully supervise all the swimmers in your pool – especially small children. They’re your responsibility. Always secure your pool from unsupervised and unauthorized use.
- Make sure signs, stickers, and labels are posted and clearly visible that the rescue devices, such as life rings or ropes, are nearby.
