Keeping Kids Safe Around the Pool

Pool Safety Features by Deep Blue Pools and Spas

It only takes seconds for tragedy to strike when children and swimming pools are involved. That’s why everyone is encouraged to focus on child safety elements when designing an in-ground swimming pool. Make sure your pool fence at least four feet high and has a self-closing, self-latching gate. You must also remove obstacles from along the fence line that children can use to climb over, such as patio chairs, tables, gazebos, outdoor fireplaces, and grills. Of course when children are in the pool , make sure at least one adult is responsible for watching the kids at all times.

It’s incredible important that you put child safety at the forefront of your mind when designing a swimming pool. Even if you don’t have children of your own, kids can easily wander onto your property and fall into your pool if proper safety measures aren’t in place. Talk to your Salt Lake City pool builder about safety features that can help keep kids safe.
